The BJP on Saturday named Sharda Devi as president of its Manipur unit.

The appointments were made by BJP national president JP Nadda and come into immediate effect, party general secretary Arun Singh said in a statement.

Sharda Devi will succeed Saikhom Tikendra Singh, who succumbed to COVID-19 last month.

Sharda Devi earlier served as vice president of the Manipur unit.

Manipur is going to the Assembly polls next year.
