This is the first time Shah is contesting Lok Sabha elections and is inching towards a historical win. Shah is a four-time MLA from Sarkhej winning in 1997 (by-election), 1998, 2002 and 2007. Considered a close confidant of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Shah’s stature rose in national politics after BJP captured 73 out of 80 seats in Uttar Pradesh during 2014 general elections. Shah at that point was in charge of Uttar Pradesh. Subsequently, he went on to become the party president of BJP.

Under his leadership, the BJP achieved success in Legislative Assembly elections in Maharashtra, Haryana, Jammu & Kashmir, Jharkhand and Assam in 2016, but lost the elections in Delhi, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan, and Madhya Pradesh.

He led his party to victory in state elections in Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, and Gujarat. He also worked to strengthen the party’s position in Manipur.
