Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya tweeted a cryptic line on Sunday: “The organization is bigger than the government!” His tweet, however, has ignited intense political speculation as to who will become the new state BJP chief as the saffron party sets its course for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
The organization is bigger than the government!

There is speculation that Maurya may soon occupy the post of UP BJP president. While the exact context of his thoughts is unclear, his tweet is being seen as a way to send some kind of message. It can be assumed that he is willing to play a role in the organization rather than the government.
Interestingly, Maurya was also the state president of the BJP in the 2017 assembly elections. This strengthens their case for such a development as the BJP gears up for the mammoth challenge of 2014.
