BJP joint general secretary (organisation) BL Santosh has been appointed party general secretary (organisation), replacing Ramlal on Sunday. Ramlal was moved back to the RSS after a 10-year stint.
According to sources, Ramlal had twice written to party chief Amit Shah requesting him to be relieved from his responsibility as party's general secretary (organisation). Ramlal has been appointed as Akhil Bhartiya Seh Samparak Pramukh in the RSS, a post which he held before 2009.
The decision was taken at the Rashtrya Swayamsevak Sangh's 'Prantha Pracharak Baithak' which concluded on Saturday in Vijaywada, Sangh's publicity incharge Arun Kumar said.
The post of general secretary (organisation) in the BJP is always held by a Sangh functionary for better coordination between the two organisations. Kumar said it is a routine practice to transfer Sangh full-timers.
