New Delhi: In two important appointments, the Bharatiya Janata Party President Amit Shah on Wednesday appointed new state party Presidents of Bihar and Delhi with immediate effect.

The famous Bhojpuri actor and singer Manoj Tiwari has been appointed the new president of the BJP's Delhi unit, replacing Satish Upadhyay. Tiwari is a Lok Sabha member from North-East Delhi.

The 45-year-old actor turned politician has a huge following among the migrant Bhojpuri speaking voters from Bihar and eastern Uttar Pradesh in the national capital. He is considered as the eastern face of the party.
