New Delhi, June 03, 2020.

Actor-politician Manoj Tiwari has been replaced as chief of the BJP in Delhi. Adesh Kumar Gupta, a Delhi BJP veteran, will take over from him, the ruling party said today.

Manoj Tiwari, who was appointed Delhi BJP president in 2016, was said to be on borrowed time since the party’s disastrous performance in the Delhi assembly election in February.

Sources say the 49-year-old MP had offered to resign immediately after the Delhi defeat but was asked to continue until an alternative was found.

Adesh Gupta, a former North Delhi Municipal Corporation mayor, is low profile and an old hand of the party in the capital. Many interpret his appointment as a sign that the BJP is once again looking for its core support group in the capital — the Vaishya community.

“I can only say that I will fulfill my responsibility with honesty and dedication,

“In Delhi, we need to work on the ground level. We need to reach more people and create a more all-embracing organisation, so that we can enhance our voter base,” he added.

Mr Tiwari, a Bhojpuri singing star-turned-politician, was always perceived as an “outsider” in the faction-driven Delhi BJP and was seen to have been unable to effectively counter the Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) despite his street-fighting skills and non-stop sparring.
