By Our Correspondent

Agartala January 13 ,2020 : Renowned dental surgeon Dr Manik Saha is likely to be the next president of the state BJP after the election process to the post is over. Even though the matter is still in the stage of rife speculation , the BJP spokesperson Nabendu Bhattacharjee said that the preparation is in advanced stage for election to the post on January 15 and on this very day the name of the new president will be declared . Nabendu said that despite speculation over various names Dr Manik Saha was ahead in the race because of his clean image and popular professional career. He however hinted that regardless of the preparation for elections mandate of the party's central leadership would be final in deciding the issue of state BJP's next presidentship.

Sources in BJP however said that there are other aspirants to the post of party president also like senior leaders,  MP Pratima Bhowmik, vice president Ram Prasad Paul and general secretary Rajiv Bhattacharjee . "They have right to enter the fray and may do so but the final decision will be taken by the party's central leadership ; if the choice does not fall on them they will withdraw their candidature in stead of going against the mandate of the party's central leadership" sources said .

At present the chief minister Biplab Kumar Deb is the incumbent president and has been in the post since January 2016. As per party constitution he can not have dual responsibility and moreover, because of the surfeit of crucial elections coming soon one after another the party's organizational set-up needs to be toned up . Considering this, Biplab has decided to step away to pave the way for a new president who will give full time to his organizational functioning as party president, insiders in the party said.
