Sukanta Majumdar new chief of Bengal BJP

New Delhi, Sept 20 (UNI): The BJP on Monday appointed Sukanta Majumdar as the West Bengal BJP President, replacing Dilip Ghosh.

Ghosh has been appointed as a national vice president of the party.

Baby Rani Maurya, who resigned as the governor of Uttarakhand, was appointed as a national vice president of the party as well.

Majumdar was elected to the Lok Sabha from Balurghat, West Bengal in the 2019 general elections. The announcement was made by BJP president JP Nadda.

The move came months after the West Bengal assembly polls where BJP faced defeat, even as party leader Suvendu Adhikari managed to defeat Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in Nandigram.

The Trinamool Congress won 213 seats, while BJP won 77.
