After reviewing the organisational matters in Lucknow on Thursday, work of some party coordinators was changed, a leader told IANS on Friday. More changes are in the offing, he informed.

Dinesh Chandra has been assigned additional work of Devipatan and Gorakhpur zones while Lalji Verma, so far taking care of party interests in Gorakhpur, was moved out.

Mayawati is on a ten-day visit to the state capital, and is likely to continue assessing the strengths and weaknesses of the party's organisation.

Emerging as the principle challenge to the ruling Samajwadi Party (SP) in the run up to the assembly, to be held early next year, the BSP is working aggressively to "set its house in order and tighten the loose nuts and bolts before getting down to brass tacks", a close aide to the former chief minister said.
