New Delhi: Eyeing 2014 General elections, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has geared up to revamp the party oraganisation. Taking initiative in this direction, party members in the age group of 45 will be assigned with major responsibilities of the party.

The changes will be included at the national and state level. The BJP will kick start the campaign from those states where assembly polls are scheduled in next two years. The process will also continue in other states.

As a matter of fact, the BJP has taken this decision following increasing participation of youngsters. More so, the party is taking serious note of the assembly elections in five states and has planned to take youth in its fold. Though two years are left for the Lok Sabha election, the party is planning to establish a cadre of young leaders to cross swords with the Congress young leader Rahul Gandhi.

The preparations for the changes in the party and to promote young leaders have begun from last two years with the appointment of Nitin Gadkari as the party president. The party stalwarts are now promoting youth participation in state organisation. In recent elections, the BJP appointed young members as party functionaries.
