Bangalore, May 30: BJP General Secretary and Prime Minister Narendra Modi's close aide Amit Shah may be assigned the task to rejuvenate the party's organisation in Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal, a report published in The New Indian Express said. While Maharashtra will go to the assembly election later this year, elections in Tamil Nadu and West Bengal are scheduled in 2016.

Shah played a big role in the saffron party's winning 71 out of 80 seats in Uttar Pradesh in the recently concluded Lok Sabha election. He was the party's in-charge for the key state. The BJP leadership is now considering to send Shah to other states to produce similar results. The man has also not been accommodated in the central government for the party wants him to remain associated with the organisational work. Sources also pointed out that it is unlikely that Shah will be made the party president as a successor to Rajnath Singh who became the Union Home Minister.

The decision might be finalised after the BJP's president is appointed

The plan to send Shah, a former minister of Gujarat, to the three states have been delayed because of the ongoing consultations among the senior leaders of the RSS and BJP over the next party president.
Shah is supposed to visit Maharashtra next to begin preparations for the assembly polls. The BJP and its allies won 42 seats in the state in this year's Lok Sabha election.
