Ram Madhav likely to be stripped of J&K charge


Jammu, Failure of BJP to form a government in
Jammu and Kashmir following dissolution of assembly is
likely to cost the party national general secretary Ram
Madhav of the state’s charge.
Reliable sources in the BJP circles say the party high
command has already made up its mind to remove Madhav
as incharge J&K in view of his blunders committed in the last
three years.
However, the sources added, the latest development in which
arch rival PDP and National Conference came closer for
forming a government and failure of Madhav to get a prior
information about such attempts have forced the party high
command to seriously mull removal of its pointman on J&K.
While elaborating, sources said that the BJP high command
was already mulling removal of Madhav as incharge J&K for
the last several months following some complaints against
his style of working and more particularly pick and choose
Party’s annoyance was evident in the last reshuffle affected
in the government when the high command, in consultation
with RSS, removed some BJP ministers, who were allegedly
close to Madhav.
Again, sources added, advice of Madhav was also not sought
before taking a final decision on pulling out of the coalition
government and again it was RSS, which had strongly
recommended for severing ties with the PDP.
In nutshell, Madhav was already in the line of fire for several
months, but the party was delaying his removal with a hope
that his personal ties with some PDP leaders would help the
BJP to manage magic number to form a government.
However, the dissolution of assembly has not only dashed all
hopes of BJP but also angered the party against Madhav for
his failure in getting prior information about NC, PDP
bonhomie, sources said.
