"We have revamped the organisation with an eye on 2016 assembly polls. We have chalked out a plan to achieve our goal. The people are with us and it was proved in recent law violation programmes across the state," West Bengal BJP president Dilip Ghosh, who assumed the post last month, told reporters.

Within weeks of taking over, Ghosh, a RSS pracharak, cracked the whip and removed several office bearers and district presidents. The change appears to have infused a new lease of energy with BJP cadres hitting the streets in various parts of the state as part of law-violation programme.

According to party insiders who spoke on condition of anonymity, Ghosh has full support of RSS and has thrown its full strength behind him after placing its men in key positions. Actress-turned-politician Rupa Ganguly, who reportedly shared a strained relationship with for former BJP state president Rahul Sinha, was made the chief of state BJP women's wing.

With the new leadership cracking the whip, several top leaders of state BJP like general secretary Ashim Sarkar, media convenor Ritesh Tiwari have lost their berths. Others to go includes the party's youth wing president Amitava Roy and several former bureaucrats who joined BJP before the 2014 general election did not find any berth in the state unit.
