 The Bharatiya Janata Party (bjp) on Wednesday appointed Mr. Suresh Kumar Kashyap, the Lok Sabha MP from Shimla, as its Himachal Pradesh unit president, replacing Mr. Rajiv Bindal. Bindal had resigned from the state leadership. Kashyap is an ex-serviceman and has been elected as an MLA twice on the party ticket earlier.

He replaces Rajeev Bindal, who resigned in May within five months of his appointment after his name had cropped up in police investigation in a corruption case involving the purchase of medical equipment, including PPE kits.

In his one-page resignation sent to JP Nadda, Bindal had said, “Fingers are being raised on the BJP after the arrest of former director, health services, (Dr Ajay Gupta) and being the president of the party, I feel that the matter should be investigated properly without any pressure and I am submitting my resignation keeping in view the high moral values.”

Mr. Anurag Thakur MP and Minister of State for Finance affairs contratulated Mr. Kashayap on his appointment as State BJP Chief.
