Jagat Prakash Nadda became the 11th elected Chief of Bhartiya Janata Party. Nadda, the Union Health Minister during the first term of the Modi government, was appointed as the working president of the party in mid June.

Nadda was later elected unopposed after he emerged as the only leader in the fray following the nomination process. Following the party’s ‘one man one post’ policy, Nadda has replaced Amit Shah, the Union Home Minister as the National President of BJP.

J.P. Nadda, 59, started his political journey by playing an active part in student politics as part of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), the student wing of RSS. He played a key role in politics in Himachal Pradesh before becoming a poignant national leader.
