Jammu, Nov 7 (UNI) The Bahujan Samaj Party in Jammu and Kashmir is likely to undergo a major reshuffle ahead of BSP president Mayawati's maiden visit to the winter capital on November 18 since she took over as the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister.
''Riding on the UP victory, the BSP aims at clinging 'distinguishable' seats in the J&K assembly elections which are due somewhere next year. And to settle down scores among the party cadres, Ms Mayawati is likely to make some changes at the state level,'' party sources told UNI today.

Asserting that the BSP was facing ''in fight'' among its cadres, the leader said: ''Undoubtedly, Ms Mayawati will be visiting here to fill up these cracks.'' Besides ''infighting'' among the party cadre at the lower level, a rift between senior party leaders had also being observed.
''Party state president Yash Pal Bhagat may be shown the door and Mr T Khullar may get the top responsibility in the state,'' the sources added.
