With several posts lying vacant in the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) after the recent cabinet formation in Uttar Pradesh after the appointment of Yogi Adityanath as the chief minister of the state, every senior party leader visiting the national capital today is seen as an aspirant for some post of the other. As per Indian Express report, no decisions may be taken on these appointments soon, as party chief Amit Shah is very busy as he is travelling across the country.
The report, also said that apart from organisational posts, aspirants are also waiting for appointments in statutory commissions for scheduled tribes, scheduled castes and minorities. Party general secretaries who have proposed names for vacant posts are already flooded with calls for updates.
