New Delhi, Jan.24 (ANI): The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Sunday said that they have full faith on Amit Shah’s leadership and added that his reappointment to the top post would strengthen the party to tackle the upcoming challenges.
“His appointment will strengthen the party and we will be able to face upcoming challenges,” Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Commerce and Industry Nirmala Sitharaman told ANI.
Echoing similar sentiments, Union Health and Family Welfare Minister J.P. Nadda said that the party, under Shah’s leadership will have a positive role to play in providing direction to the nation.
“We have full faith that under Amit Shah’s leadership. The party will have positive role to play in providing direction to nation,” he said.
Another BJP leader Anurag Thakur also heaped praise on Shah, saying he has played a major role in making the BJP the largest political party of the nation.
“Amit Shah ji played a major role in making BJP the largest political party. The BJP will grow under his leadership,” Thakur said.
Despite drawing flak from several quarters for poll debacles in Delhi and Bihar, the incumbent BJP president is tipped to be re-elected unopposed to the top post.
Shah’s current tenure ended on Saturday and the new term would be his first full-term lasting three years. At present, he was completing the remaining tenure of former party president Rajnath Singh, who had demitted the post after joining the Union Cabinet as Home Minister in May 2014.
Under Shah’s leadership, the BJP scaled new heights by coming to power in Maharashtra, Haryana, Jharkhand and Jammu and Kashmir. However, the party had to face defeats in Delhi and Bihar assembly elections, triggering some rumblings in the BJP. (ANI)
