BJP working president JP Nadda is expected to take over as the party president next week, succeeding Union Home Minister Amit Shah.
According to sources, a formal announcement for the election schedule will be released soon and Nadda is likely to be elected unopposed, Times of India reported.
Nadda was appointed as the party's working president in July 2019, as the then incumbent Amit Shah was made a Union minister of the Modi government, after BJP won 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
In the run-up to the 2019 general election, Nadda was in charge of BJP's election campaign in the politically crucial state of Uttar Pradesh, where the party faced a tough challenge following the grand alliance between the Samajwadi Party (SP) and the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP).
The party won 62 out of the 80 Lok Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh.
Apart from handling crucial states for the BJP in the general election, Nadda was a Cabinet Minister in the first tenure of the Modi government and has been a member of the parliamentary board, the BJP's top decision-making body.
