Actor and Lok Sabha MP from North-East Delhi Manoj Tiwari was appointed the president of the BJP's Delhi unit, replacing Satish Upadhyay.
BJP president Amit Shah has also appointed another MP Nityanand Rai as the chief of the party's Bihar unit.
"Manoj Tiwari will replace Satish Upadhyay as BJP chief with immediate effect," the statement said.
"I would like to thank PM Narendra Modi for showing trust on a new party worker like me. I will try to fulfill my responsibilities," Tiwari said in his reaction to his elevation.
Tiwari, 45, is the BJP's prominent 'purabiya' face, who has a huge following among the migrant Bhojpuri-speaking voters from Bihar and eastern Uttar Pradesh.
Rai, 50, is a Lok Sabha MP from Bihar's Ujiarpur constituency. Earlier, the Bihar unit of the BJP was headed by Mangal Pandey.
