Ahead of the Shimla Municipal Corporation polls, Himachal Pradesh BJP chief Suresh Kashyap has handed over his resignation to the party's national president BJP Nadda, sources said on Friday.
    
According to BJP office bearers, Kashyap cited "personal reasons" for resigning from his post.
    
Kashyap, who was appointed as the chief of the BJP's Himachal Pradesh unit on July 22, 2020, following the resignation of Rajeev Bindal, had a lackluster tenure. The party suffered defeat in the by-polls to the Mandi Lok Sabha seat and Arki, Fatehpur, and Jubbal-Kotkhai Assembly constituencies in November 2021. It also lost the Assembly polls held in December 2022.
    
A two-time MLA from Pachhad, Kashyap was also elected to the Lok Sabha in 2019. 
    
The BJP is likely to reorganise its organisational structure in the state soon.
