Mumbai: Denied a ticket in the 2019 polls, Tawde is now the general office of the BJP | Bombay News


Mumbai: BJP head of state Vinod Tawde, who was denied a ticket to the 2019 parliamentary elections, was elevated to the post of party’s national secretary general on Sunday. The decision was announced by BJP chairman JP Nadda ahead of parliamentary elections in five states, including Uttar Pradesh.
Tawde was promoted to the post of National Secretary General from his previous post of National Secretary to fill the vacant post created by the appointment of Bhupendra Yadav as Union Minister. The general secretaries report directly to the president of the party.
“This opportunity will help me become more active in national politics. I will strive to bring government programs to the grassroots. As part of the national team, I will also ensure that Maharashtra’s issues are tackled more effectively, ”said Tawde, who is reportedly a political rival to former WC Devendra Fadnavis.
Tawde said his elevation was a perfect example of how political leaders can get an opportunity if they show restraint and patience. “When I was a minister, I headed departments managed by eight ministers in the MVA government. But, when I was refused a ticket, I continued to work for the party and kept my patience and my potential was noticed and rewarded.
Tawde started his political career as a student leader at Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad and later served as General Secretary of All India. He later became an MLC and was also Leader of the Opposition in 2011-14. Tawde was elected MP for Borivli assembly constituency in 2014. From 2014 to 2019, he was Minister of Education in the Fadnavis government. But in June 2019, Tawde was sacked from cabinet and was subsequently denied a ticket to the assembly ballots. tnn
