The for-the-name-sake election held for choosing the next BJP working president elected the BJP leader Jagat Prakash Nadda on Monday. The senior politician who is claimed to be the loyalist to the Saffron party took over the presidentship from the previous chief and Union Minister Amit Shah. JP Nadda was unanimously proposed by the ex-chiefs and parliamentary board members Amit Shah, Rajnath Singh and Nitin Gadkari in the meeting held on Monday at the party headquarters in New Delhi.
While JP Nadda filed the nomination this morning, there had been no other nominations leaving the authorities to go with the senior leader who is known to be the noted loyalist for Modi-Shah duo. With Amit Shah writing to Prime Minister Modi requesting him to release from the presidentship to focus on his ministerial responsibilities, speculations zeroed in on Nadda who is considered to be an affable and accessible politician.
However, political analysts opined that the leader would still work under the shadow of Amit. With the strong RSS and AVBP roots, the three-time MLA of Himachal Pradesh has already enjoyed the working president post in June 2019. The upcoming Delhi and Bihar election are the immediate challenges for Nadda while expanding BJPs base in South has been another task.
