The BJP on Friday appointed former Rajasthan BJP president Satish Punia as the in-charge of the state of Haryana.

Jaipur:

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday appointed former Rajasthan BJP president Satish Punia as the state in-charge of Haryana.

Mr Punia is among the BJP in-charges and co-in-charges appointed for 24 states by BJP president JP Nadda. He has also been the Deputy Opposition Leader in the previous assembly.

UP Rajya Sabha MP Surendra Singh Nagar has been appointed as co-in-charge along with Mr Punia.

In the Lok Sabha elections also, the party appointed Satish Punia as the state election in-charge in Haryana.

Meanwhile, the BJP is yet to decide who will be the party’s Rajasthan chief as the desert state did not figure in the list of 24 states released on Friday.

Arun Singh served as the last state in-charge in Rajasthan and since he moved to Andhra Pradesh, the post has remained vacant.
