JP Nadda appointed as the working President of BJP after Amit Shah moved to the central govt as Home Minister

Amit Shah had won elections from the Gandhinagar seat in Gujarat with a thumping margin.

Ending weeks of speculation, BJP leader JP Nadda has been appointed as the working president of BJP.

Rajnath Singh has said, “BJP won several elections under the leadership of Amit Shah Ji. But since PM appointed him Home Minister, Amit Shah Ji himself said the responsibility of party president should be given to someone else. BJP Parliamentary board has selected JP Nadda as working president”.

The move comes after Amit Shah moved to the Central Government and has been given the charge of the Home Ministry under Modi government 2.0.

Amit Shah had won elections from the Gandhinagar seat in Gujarat with a thumping margin.

Amit Shah had won the Gandhinagar seat with a margin of 5.57 lakh votes against his nearest Congress rival C J Chavda.

Jagat Prakash Nadda is from the state of Himachal Pradesh, though he was born and brought up in Patna, and studied there up to his graduation, where his father was a professor, and later became VC of Patna University. He was also active in ABVP in his student days.

He shifted his base to New Delhi in national politics in 2010 and was elected as Rajyasabha MP in 2012. He was inducted as Minister for Health and Family Welfare, in the first reshuffle of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s cabinet.
