 Bhubaneswar, July 3: Biju Janata Dal (BJD) is gearing up for a restructuring of its organizational structure following its unexpected defeat in the recent Assembly and Lok Sabha elections

It is said that BJD leadership plans to dismantle the existing organizational structure and establish a new one. This move aims to rejuvenate the party after its setback in the polls.

 The incumbent general secretary (organisation), Pranab Prakash Das, will be replaced. Additionally, the general secretary (headquarters), Sanjay Dasburma, will also be changed. Both leaders faced defeat in the recent elections.

VK Pandian, a bureaucrat-turned-politician and a close aide to the former chief minister, has already withdrawn from active politics following the party’s electoral defeat. However, no other leader has announced their resignation from party posts so far.

It is expected that the restructuring process will commence after the Rath Yatra on July 7 and conclude before the budget session of the Assembly, which is likely to be convened on July 15.

 On the other hand, pressure is mounting on BJD president, Naveen Patnaik, to effect significant changes and regain public confidence. Senior leaders have emphasized the need for organizational adjustments during post-poll introspection meetings.

The BJD currently has nine senior vice-presidents, ten vice-presidents, and 35 senior general secretaries and general secretaries. Additionally, there are secretaries, spokespersons, and office-bearers of the frontal organizations.

While the party evaluates its performance, the upcoming organizational revamp aim to position the BJD for future electoral challenges.
