How did young MP CP Joshi’s ‘lottery’ happen even among BJP’s strong leaders?
CP Joshi’s head tied due to no Brahmin face from Rajasthan in effective role
Being in the parliamentary committee related to cooperatives with Amit Shah also has the advantage of being close.
To remove factionalism in BJP before the elections, the reins of the state were handed over to the non-aligned leader.
Chittorgarh. Before the assembly elections, the factionalism that was on the rise in the BJP had already decided the departure of Satish Poonia. The big question was that after Poonia (Satish poonia) who will handle this big responsibility? BJP MP CP Joshi got the benefit of being close to Home Minister Amit Shah, lobbying of the Governor of Assam and being non-aligned. Because of Joshi’s ability to fit in the equation of helping all castes, he became the leader of the BJP.
BJP MP CP Joshi chose the day of March 27 to take over the responsibility of the state president. On entering Jaipur on Monday, after visiting the Hanuman temple, there was a welcome at Transport Nagar Square, Trimurti Circle and Sawai Jaisingh Statue Circle.

Opposition wrote the script to change the president
Satish Poonia himself wrote the script to change the BJP state president. In fact, the BJP’s camp was already in the headlines, but two different programs held in Salasar and Jaipur on Vasundhara’s birthday increased the tension between Vasundhara-Poonia. Its negative message went up to the top. Due to this, the allegations of Rajya Sabha MP Kirori Lal Meena were also strengthened, in which he was constantly accusing Satish Poonia of not supporting him in the protest against the Gehlot government.

Focus on social engineering in electing state president
The formation of many factions in the party before the assembly elections can be harmful for the BJP. Sensing this, a strategy was made to appoint a new president by not extending Poonia’s tenure. The big question was that after Poonia, who should be handed over the reins, so that the factionalism also ends and the party also prepares more strongly for the elections. Raje’s return to the post of president was difficult. In view of the elections in Rajasthan, BJP focused on social engineering and made a strategy to stake claim on such a leader.
Important role of many leaders in caste equations
Talking about the participation of Rajasthan in the Union Cabinet, there are four ministers. Among these, three Lok Sabha MPs Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, Arjunram Meghwal and Kailash Chowdhary and one Rajya Sabha MP Bhupendra Yadav are included in the Union Cabinet. Gajendra Singh Shekhawat comes from non-reserved category and has a good hold in Marwar. The remaining three ministers are from the reserved category. Of these, one is from SC and two from OBC category. Kota MP Om Birla is on the post of Lok Sabha Speaker, who is from Vaish class. Jagdeep Dhankhar is on the post of Vice President, who is from the Jat community.
No Brahmin face from Rajasthan in dominant role
In fact, there is no Brahmin face from Rajasthan in an effective role in the BJP government at the Center and in the national organization as well. BJP has 28 MPs from Rajasthan including Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha and more than 70 MLAs in Vidhansabha. But at present, any Brahmin face is playing a major role in the state BJP. Ghanshyam Tiwari has barely returned to the party. Some other Brahmin leaders of BJP have influence only up to their area. In the recently held Brahmin Mahapanchayat, the name of Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnav was floated to make him the CM of this caste.
Governor Kataria’s lobbying worked for Joshi
But the BJP think tank finalized the name of MP CP Joshi. Trusted sources of the BJP tell that the role of Assam Governor Gulabchand Kataria has also been important in making CP Joshi the president. When the names of the new president were discussed, in front of the central leadership, Kataria forwarded the name of Joshi, a youth leader coming from his own Mewar division. Joshi was looking after the work of the BJP’s state executive as its vice-president. Joshi was already in Amit Shah’s good book at the central level as he played an important role in the Parliamentary Committee on Cooperatives. This was the reason that due to Shah, Kataria and being an undisputed Brahmin leader, CP Joshi got a chance to become the head of the state BJP.
