MP Pratap Simha on his way out of BJP Yuva Mor­cha Chief’s post

Evening Today - - STATE -

Bengaluru: My­suru MP Pratap Simha is on his way out of the BJP state youth wing pres­i­dent’s post. If sources in the state BJP unit are to be be­lieved, party na­tional pres­i­dent Amit Shah de­cided to re­vamp the Youth Mor­cha, speci­cally be­cause he feels that the wing has not been very ac­tive over the last one year. Ac­cord­ing to re­li­able sources, re­cently, a few BJP se­nior lead­ers and RSS ac­tivists lodged a com­plaint with Shah on the style of func­tion­ing of the youth wing. They al­leged that the Mor­cha is not hold­ing any protests or or­gan­i­sa­tional ac­tiv­i­ties. “It has be­come very dull. Simha is not show­ing any in­ter­est in the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s works,” said sources.

Fol­low­ing the com­plaint, Shah di­rected the party na­tional lead­ers to look into the is­sue. “The party is ex­pected to bring in a new face by re­plac­ing Simha, who is ex­pected to lose the MP ticket too,” added sources. Pratap Simha was not avail­able for a re­ac­tion.
