New Delhi [India], July 19 (ANI): The Bharatiya Janata Party is expected to reconstitute its parliamentary board soon.
According to highly placed sources, the vacant posts in the parliamentary board are likely to be filled during the monsoon session of parliament.

The party constitution provides that the parliamentary board will have 10 members besides the party chief. One of the members should be the leader of the party in parliament.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Ministers Amit Shah, Rajnath Singh, Nitin Gadkari, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, and general secretary (Organisation) BL Santhosh are members of the parliamentary board apart from party chief JP Nadda.
