The Delhi BJP today effected a reshuffle in party organisation by handing new responsibilities to its ex-councillors who were denied tickets in municipal elections.
Among the ex-councillors who have been entrusted with new responsibilities are Subhas Arya, Ashish Sood, Shobha Vijender, Devender Solanki and Rajpal Rana.
Arya, veteran BJP leader in the MCD, has been appointed the president of election management department of the party, while Sood has been given the responsibility for publicity and information section.
The move is seen as a bid to pacify former municipal councillors who were apparently "disappointed" over Delhi BJP president Manoj Tiwari's decision not to give tickets to them to contest civic elections held in April this year.
