New Delhi, Jan 23 — The BJP parliamentary board Wednesday thanked the party's outgoing president Nitin Gandkari, saying he immensely helped in expanding the party's support base.

The parliamentary board met at the Bharatiya Janata Party headquarters in the capital Wednesday.

"The parliamentary board places on record its deep sense of appreciation of leadership provided by Nitin Gadkari as the president of BJP," senior party leader Ananth Kumar read out a statement after the meeting.

"Gadkari's dynamism, good work, and open mindedness helped immensely in expanding the support base of the party. He displayed qualities of an ideal 'karyakarta' (party worker) and was always available to party workers," he said.

The BJP parliamentary board meeting was attended by senior party leaders L.K. Advani, Sushma Swaraj, Arun Jaitley and Venkaiah Naidu among others.

The board also endorsed the name of Rajnath Singh as new party president.

Gadkari made an announcement Tuesday evening saying he would not seek a second term as he wanted his name cleared of the corruption charges.
