Former Union Health Minister and senior BJP leader J P Nadda has been appointed as the new working president of the party after incumbent Amit Shah became the Home Minister in the new Narendra Modi led NDA government.
This decision was taken following the BJP parliamentary board meeting attended by senior leaders like Narendra Modi, Amit Shah, Rajnath Singh, Nitin Gadkari and Sushma Swaraj.
Nadda, who hails from Bihar, began his political career from Himachal Pradesh before moving into national politics. He was earlier the Health Minister in the previous NDA government.
Nadda was presented with bouquets and congratulated by senior leaders following his selection.
Under the leadership of Amit Shah, the BJP won a record 303 seats in the recently concluded Lok Sabha polls. He is also credited with ensuring his party’s victory in states like Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Maharashtra and Gujarat.
