After this, CP Joshi will reach the BJP state office at 11.30 am and take charge at 12.15 pm. During this, workers from all over the state will be present along with former BJP state president Satish Poonia as well as top leaders and office bearers of the party.
Defeated the veteran Congress leader
Chandra Prakash Joshi has reached Lok Sabha twice from Chittorgarh. He won the election from this seat first in 2014 and again in 2019. In the 2014 general elections, he defeated senior Congress leader Girija Vyas. Joshi has been the state president of BJP’s youth wing, BJYM. He became the 15th President of BJP Rajasthan and 7th Brahmin President.
Earlier, Harishankar Bhabhada, Bhanwarlal Sharma, Lalit Kishore Chaturvedi, Mahesh Chandra Sharma, Raghuveer Singh Kaushal and Arun Chaturvedi have been Brahmin state presidents. After changing the president, the formation of new state executive will be a challenge before the BJP.
CP will remove the shortage of Kataria
By making CP Joshi the state president, BJP has tried to help Mewar. Brahmins and Vaishyas are the big vote bank of BJP in Mewar. After Gulabchand Kataria, who was an MLA from Udaipur, was made the Governor of Assam, the BJP was left with no effective leader in Mewar.
In such a situation, by giving new responsibility to Joshi, BJP has tried to strengthen itself in this belt. Udaipur, Rajsamand, Chittorgarh and Banswara districts have a sizeable vote bank of Brahmins and Vaishyas.
Brahmin president for 22 out of 42 years
CP Joshi, who was made BJP state president, participated in the Vipra Mahapanchayat held in Jaipur on Sunday. In the Mahapanchayat, he had learned to protect Sanatan and work in the interest of the society and not criticize the leaders of the society without any reason. Now by making him the state president, the BJP has tried to give a message to the Brahmin voters.
Brahmin has been the biggest core voter of BJP. In such a situation, this appointment is being considered important for helping this large section. In the history of more than 42 years of BJP, the State President in Rajasthan has been from this class for more than 22 years.
