Jaipur, Mar 15 (UNI) Former BJP Rajasthan unit president Mahesh Chandra Sharma has been appointed chairman of the Rajasthan Investment Promotion and Development Advisory Board.
Mr Sharma's appointment is for a period of three years, an official spokesman said.
Omprakash Mathur, in place of Mr Sharma, took over as the state party president on January 1 this year in the wake of persistent demand from the ''dissidents group'' of the ruling party.
Ever since his removal from the post, Mr Sharma was aspiring for a Rajya Sabha ticket.
However, the party tickets were allotted to state president Mr Mathur and sitting MP Gyan Prakash Pilania for the March 26 Rajya Sabha elections.
