New Delhi: After the ratification of his appointment as the BJP president, Amit Shah is all set to announce his new team of office bearers soon.

Party sources said the all-new team under Shah could be unveiled in a day or two, ahead of crucial Assembly elections in the states of Haryana, Maharashtra, Jharkhand and Jammu and Kashmir.

Indications are that Shah's new team will have a lot of young faces as well as women.

Sources said there could be 10 new general secretaries and an equal number of secretaries.

Prominent leaders who may find a place in Shah's team are JP Nadda, Ram Madhav, Bhupendra Yadav, Capt Abhimanyu, Varun Gandhi and Rajiv Pratap Rudy.

One senior leader from poll-bound Maharashtra, either Devendra Phadnavis or Vinod Tawre, could also find a place in the team.

The names of Raghuvir Das from Jharkhand and Swatanter Dev Singh are also doing the rounds for the post of general secretaries. Mahila Morcha chief Saroj Pande may also become a general secretary, sources said.

Prominent young faces like Anurag Thakur, Poonam Mahajan, Sunil Deodhar, Rameshwar Chaurasia, Sudhanshu Trivedi, Anil Baloni, Shrikant Sharma and Mahender Pandey are likely to be party secretaries.

Shah will also appoint new party spokespersons.

Youth leader Raghav Lakhanpal is being considered for heading the Yuva Morcha. Sources said the new BJP vice presidents could be Tapir Gao, Prabhat Jha and Om Mathur.
