New Delhi: Amid speculation over impending changes in BJP after government formation, party President and Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Wednesday said discussions on appointment of his successor in the organisation were "still on".
"Discussions are still on," he told reporters here when asked about a new BJP chief.
Singh, along with senior party leaders including Arun Jaitley and Nitin Gadkari, are reported to have held discussions with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the issue after the Union Cabinet meeting today.
Singh had announced that he will quit the party post soon keeping in view the party`s principle of one-man-one-post.
BJP general secretaries Amit Shah, JP Nadda and Om Prakash Mathur are in the race for the top party post.
Singh, who was to hold a key meeting at the BJP headquarters today with party office-bearers and ministers to discuss the possible changes in the BJP, could not do so as it was postponed due to Rajdhani Express mishap in Bihar.
The party is expected to see widespread changes as many senior leaders have taken up positions in the government.
The BJP top leadership as well as its ideological fountainhead RSS are keen on keeping the party vibrant and strong after government formation, especially in view of Assembly elections in key states like Maharashtra, Haryana and Jharkhand later this year and in Jammu and Kashmir early next year.
