New Delhi, Mar 16 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Nitin Gadkari is expected to announce the party's new team of office bearers on Tuesday, thereby ending a three-month long suspense.

Gadkari soon after being elevated to the post of BJP President had said that he wanted to bring some changes in the saffron brigade eyeing upon infusing new spirit in the party.

It is expected that Gadkari's new team will have a blend of youth and experience, but the biggest concern that crops up is that will those not in good books of former BJP President Rajnath Singh get an opportunity.

There is a buzz that despite stiff opposition, Gadkari may give the charge of party's youth-wing to Varun Gandhi or appoint him the BJP head of Uttar Pradesh.

BJP founder Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) is backing Varun Gandhi to be a counter to Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi.

A lot of changes are expected for post of BJP General Secretaries. Former Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje, who had openly rebelled against Rajnath Singh, is also expected to feature in Gadkari's list.

Among others, former minister's Shahnawaz Hussain and Ravishankar Prasad are also expected to feature in the BJP new brigade.

Reports said that around 30 percent posts would be given to new faces and in consultation with the RSS; leaders blamed for electoral failures may be left behind.

BJP spokesman Prakash Javadekar has said the new BJP brigade would be a blend of old and new and more of a balanced team. (ANI)
