Suresh Kashyap resigns as BJP State President, National President Nadda yet to accept

Shimla, April 21

BJP State President, Suresh Kashyap, has tendered his resignation to National President Jagat Prakash Nadda, amid the Shimla Municipal Corporation Elections. The party’s state spokesperson confirmed the news and added that Kashyap cited the reason for resignation as a lack of time to focus on his constituency in preparation for the upcoming Lok Sabha Elections next year. Kashyap, who is also a member of the Lok Sabha from Shimla reserved seats, had taken over as state chief on July 22, 2020, and his tenure was expected to end soon.

Although Kashyap had submitted his resignation to Nadda, the latter did not accept it, according to party sources. The spokesperson said that Kashyap’s tenure had already ended, and the party was expected to make a decision on the matter soon.

The resignation comes at a time when the Shimla Municipal Elections are ongoing, and the BJP’s performance in these elections may affect the party’s prospects in the upcoming Lok Sabha Elections. The Shimla Parliamentary segment has 17 Assembly Constituencies, out of which the BJP has only won three in the previous assembly elections. The BJP’s declining graph in the state may make it challenging for Kashyap to retain his seat in 2024 if he fails to involve himself in time.

In another development, Kashyap suffered a hypoglycemic attack this morning when his Glycaemic level fell to 50, forcing him to rush to the hospital. However, he has recovered from the trauma and returned to Nahan this afternoon, and is reportedly in good health.
