Updated : June 23, 2019 05:06 PM IST
Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati Sunday appointed her brother Anand Kumar as the party's national vice-president and her nephew Akash Anand as its national coordinator.
She also appointed BSP leader Ramji Gautam as the party's national coordinator.
Uttar Pradesh will witness bypolls on 12 assembly seats and Mayawati's attempt is seen as an attempt to strengthen the organisation after its 'unexpected' performance in Lok Sabha polls in which the party won 10 seats.
