Shah at the helm

bjp president for 3 years

FINALLY, Amit Shah has become the president of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party. It was not an easy walk for him, though. And his boss, Narendra Modi, did not take any chances and had many rounds of discussion with top RSS leaders. Sources disclosed that Nitin Gadkari was the first choice of the RSS, but he has emerged as a great loyalist of Modi. Besides, his family was not inclined to let him shift to the party, they want him to remain in the government. So Gadkari backed Modi on the issue of electing Shah party president. Jagat Prakash Nadda was also emerging as a consensus candidate with a strong lobby silently supporting his candidature. Modi’s experiment in Gujarat convinced him that this time Shah was the only choice. So Nadda’s name did not even crop up for discussion. Once this was clear, Modi’s job was easier. Shah has to induct new members to show that he has a solid team to run the party but it will be done after the Budget session as it is said that many dynamic ministers will be assigned party work. So, for the next three years, Shah is the unquestioned boss of the BJP. Wait and watch who moves out from the party and who is inducted into the Cabinet.
