NADDA Appointed BJP’s National Working President: Amit Shah Will Continue as Its National President

JAGAT Prakash Nadda, 58, having clean image, was on Monday elected working president of Bharatiya Janata party at its Parliamentary Board meet held in Delhi in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minster Amit Shah and other senior leaders.   He was former Union Minister for Health and Family Welfare under PM Modi. Patna born but a native of Himachal Pradesh, Nadda is member of Rajya Sabha from the Himalayan State and Parliamentary Board Secretary of Bharatiya Janata Party. Earlier, he was a Minister in Himachal Pradesh Government. Amit Shah, who has joined the Narendra Modi cabinet as the Home Minister, will continue to be BJP chief and will likely see the party through assembly elections in Maharashtra, Haryana and Jharkhand elections later this year. “The BJP won several elections under 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,” Defence Minister Raj Nath Singh said. Nadda enjoys the confidence of the party’s top leadership and is known to be trusted by the party’s ideological mentor Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh. Amit Shah, who was named the home minister after the party came to power in May, had so far been handling both responsibilities. But with assembly elections looming in four states by the end of this year, there was speculation whether he would retain the party post.
