The party’s all-India general secretary Arun Singh made the announcement on Monday.

Dr Sukant Majumder, a BJP MP from Balurghat, when asked, said, ‘I will try to fulfill all the responsibilities on behalf of the party. The prime goal is to strengthen the party. The BJP is an ideological party. So the leader will come and go. But the party will stand on its points and the workers will fight to win the vote unitedly.”

The influence of  Mr Ghosh, whose tenure as the president of BJP’s West Bengal unit witnessed a rise of the BJP in the 2019 Lok Sabha poll, began waning within the part-fold after the 2021 Bengal elections when several BJP members, including Babul Supriyo, switched camps to the Trinamul Congress which secured a landslide victory against the saffron brigade in the state polls. Most of the turncoats had blamed Mr Ghosh for having to leave the party.

The decision to bring in a new West Bengal president is being seen as part of the BJP’s efforts to reinvigorate its organisation in the state amid desertions by a number of its leaders. However, party sources said that the move was aimed to fill the post of the vice president which fell vacant after Mukul Roy switched back to Trinamul once again.

Political observers stated the appointment of Sukanta Majumdar, a Lok Sabha BJP MP from Balurghat was a move by the BJP to ensure it can secure its organisational structure in North Bengal. A party source said that Dr Majumder shares a good rapport with most party workers and MLAs, MPs.

Dr Majumdar, who is close associate with Rashtriya Sayamsevak Sangha (RSS), pursued his M Sc and Ph D in Botany from North Bengal University and he was associated with the teaching profession before he elected from Balurghat parliamentary constituency in Malda by defeating the Trinamul Congress candidate Arpita Ghosh. He is also member of standing committee on Information Technology, Committee on Petitions and Consultative Committee, Ministry of Human Resource Development.

He has published more than fifteen scientific papers in different National and International Journals.
