National BJP has initiated a major reshuffle in the ranks within the party and appointed new faces while dropping few names from important posts as it announced a new team of the party’s national office-bearers on Saturday.

Two BJP members from Nagaland were also inducted into the Central team. Former state BJP president, Dr. M. Chuba Ao was among the 12 who were appointed as national vice presidents and adviser IT, S&T and NRE Mmhonlumo Kikon was among the 23 appointed as national spokespersons.

Among the prominent changes was the appointment of Tejasvi Surya, an MP from Karnataka, as president of the youth wing Yuva Morcha in place of Poonam Mahajan.
