Some party insiders have complained that senior leaders like Atul Debbarma, Rampada Jamatia, Ramprasad Paul and several others have been kept out of the election committee. 

Instead, those who joined the BJP from the CPI-M and the Congress in last five to seven years were included in the highest body, they pointed out.

“The BJP has been suffering from faction feuds since it won the assembly polls in 2018 and it has fragmented over the years. New BJP leaders are trying hard to marginalise the voice of old guards,” said a senior party functionary.

The entire process of assembly elections in the state has to be completed by March 9 next year. 

The Election Management Committee will finalize the election strategies and will take care of all matters from selecting candidates to campaigning.
