Union Minister of State for Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Gajendra Singh Shekhawat is most likely to named the new state BJP president.
As per the party sources, his name has been cleared by the party central command, though an official announcement would be made on Thursday. Since he is on an official tour to Greece, the sources said that he has been asked to return immediately.
Shekhawat represents Jodhpur in the Lok Sabha. The change in the party leadership in Rajasthan has come as a sign of major organisational revamp in the poll-bound state where it has suffered a string of bypoll defeats at the hands of Congress.
