'Replace Amit Shah with Shivraj Chouhan, make Gadkari Deputy PM, Rajnath UP CM to win 2019'
LUCKNOW: Veteran BJP leader Sangh Priya Gautam has stirred the hornet's nest, as he said that Shivraj Singh Chouhan should be made party president.
Also, he said that Nitin Gadkari should be made Deputy Prime Minister (Dy PM) and Rajnath Singh should replace Yogi Adityanath as chief minister of Uttar Pradesh.
Gautam, a former Union minister, and a senior Sangh leader, said that Amit Shah should hold the reins in Rajya Sabha, and Shivraj Chouhan should be made the president of BJP.
The leadre said that Narendra Modi was still the most popular leader but the wave had gone, and if elections were held right now, the party would perform badly in most states. Hence, he made these suggestions for the betterment of the BJP.
In his letter, released to media, he said that Yogi Adityanath should be assigned religious work and in his place, Rajnath Singh should be given the charge of Uttar Pradesh. These changes were much needed to ensure that the party returns to power in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections in 2019, he said.
