Ending months of speculation, the BJP on Saturday said that Nitin Gadkari will continue as the party president till January 2013.
The BJP said as the elections are currently underway in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh so the election for the the post of BJP national president will now be held in the second week of January.
Earlier some senior party MP's had sought Gadkari's resignation in the wake of allegations against his Purti Group. The BJP and the RSS have so far stood by the party president. The RSS had suspected that tirade against Gadkari is linked to the unresolved leadership issues within the BJP - especially in the light of BJP recently ammending it constitution making Gadkari eligible for the second consecutive term when the first one ends in December, 2012.
