The hunt is still on to find a capable BJP leader for Assam and in the absence of a consensus candidate, hectic lobbying is taking place in New Delhi. Leaders of Assam unit BJP are still at loggerhead over appointment of a consensus candidate as the state’s president. Many leaders are camped in Delhi to lobby for the candidate of their choice. The organizational election of the saffron party that was slated for December 30 had to be called off after verbal war broke out among the aspirants and their supporters following which the BJP high command took over the matter of appointment of the state chief. Seemingly, the aspirants are now lobbying in New Delhi with their supporters and leaders. According to a report from NE Tv bureau, four MPs from the state are also canvassing before the high command for appointment of their choicest candidates as state president. Assam unit president and MP Ramen Deka and Bijaya Chakraborty rallied behind Nakul Bora, while Kabindra Purkayastha prefers Ranjit Dutta as president. MP Rajen Gohain is also a candidate and he is not leaving any stone unturned to pressurizing the high command. Meanwhile, Assam in-charge Harendra Pratap has submitted a report to the high command on Sunday, which is under consideration. The verbal duel between Rajen Gohain and Ranjit Dutta has taken a new twist with each camp trying to convince the central leaders. Another aspirant Palit Bora is also camped in the capital with his own band of supporters. It is learnt that Sushma Swaraj and Venkaiah Naidu will play key role in the appointment of the president, which is very likely before the Magh Bihu.
