Shah has completed three years as the BJP President and adding another feather to his cap — he is now a Rajya Sabha MP as well. Under his leadership, the party won a massive mandate in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections and won consecutive state Assembly polls after that. The recent victory in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand has made his position in the party indispensable.
Shah’s rise in the party has been a result of his hardwork. Joining Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh at the age of 16, he has risen through ranks and assumed many important posts. He was a member of Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad and Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha in his initial years. It was in 1997 that Shah became an MLA from Sarkhej and Naranpura Assembly constituencies. During Modi’s tenure as the Gujarat chief minister, Shah held various important portfolios such as Home, Transport, Prohibition, Parliamentary Affairs, Law and Excise from 2002-2010.
