Nadda to assume charge as BJP chief on Jan 20

Tuesday, 14 January 2020 | PNS | New Delhi

BJP working president JP Nadda is set to take charge as the party president on January 20, succeeding Amit Shah. Nadda was appointed BJP’s working president in July last year, after Shah was picked as the Home Minister in the Modi Government.

In the run-up to the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Nadda was made incharge of BJP’s election campaign committee in Uttar Pradesh, where the party convincingly defeated the formidable alliance of the Samajwadi Party (SP) and the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) by winning 62 of the 80 Lok Sabha seats.

Apart from handling crucial States for the BJP in the general elections, Nadda was a Cabinet Minister in the first tenure of the Modi Government and has been a member of the Parliamentary Board, the BJP’s top decision making body.

Known as part of the core team of Modi, Nadda, who was a minister in his home State of Himachal Pradesh, made rapid rise since Modi took to the centre-stage of the party in 2014. His name for the party’s top post, replacing Shah, had cropped up earlier also but for certain organisational reasons, Shah continued to head the BJP .

Nadda had played an active role in the troubled  Kashmir when then BJP president Murli Manohar Joshi unfurled national flag at ‘Lal Chowk’ on January 26, 1992.
