The name of President of Kerala BJP will be finalised today in Kochi. The Union ministers held talks with the state ministers in this regard and a final decision will be taken today after the talks. 

The BJP decided to appoint a new president to Kerala BJP after Kummanam Rajasekharan took over as the Mizoram as governor. Kummanam was selected as the governor on May 25.  The names of K Surendren and AN  Radhakrishnan have been finalised for the post of BJP president.

The meeting started at a private hotel in Kochi at 10 AM and the outcome is expected in the late evening. BJP National Secretary H Raja and Naveen Kutel MP are likely to sit together and talk to the state leaders.

There were indications that Delhi-centric leaders would be called in to fill the vacant post. However, now it is said that the state leaders will get prominence. The final decision will be taken after the meeting. It is likely that the announcement will be made tomorrow.

Reports even say that Kummanan's exit to Mizoram allegedly has led to the crumbling of BJP in Kerala.
