The Delhi BJP unit has been a problem because of the internal conflict. Vijay Goel has his own followers. Likewise, Manoj Tiwari and Dr Harsh Vardhan have different set of followers. There have been demands to remove Manoj Tiwari from the post of Delhi BJP chief for more than a year now.

However, the then BJP President Amit Shah had refused to entertain such demands keeping Delhi elections in mind, where Purvanchalis constitute a sizeable number and Tiwari often flaunts his Purvanchali origin. Meanwhile, BJP President JP Nadda convened meeting on Wednesday evening to review the Delhi Assembly elections and to fix accountability.
