New Delhi: Union Home Minister Amit Shah, who handed over Monday the post of BJP president to JP Nadda, said that under his successor’s leadership the party will become stronger and expand further. Nadda was appointed as the BJP’s working president in June last.
Nadda was elected unopposed as the BJP national president after he emerged as the only leader in the fray following the nomination process in which his candidature was endorsed by top party brass.
“Heartiest congratulations to JP Nadda Ji on being elected the national president of the Bharatiya Janata Party. I firmly believe that under Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji’s guidance and your leadership, the BJP will become stronger and expand even further,” Shah said in a tweet.
“The party will benefit from Nadda ji’s organisational skills and experience and will set new records,” Shah added in a series of tweets. Under Nadda’s leadership, all BJP workers will continue to walk on the organisation’s path, said Shah.
“I am grateful for the affection and support that I got from the organisation as the BJP national president. I thank Prime Minister Modi, all senior leaders and colleagues for always keeping faith in me,” Shah said in another tweet.
“I consider myself fortunate to have had the privilege of working as president for five years in this great organisation, nurtured by many great personalities and great men,” Shah added.
The home minister also expressed gratitude to activists and well-wishers for standing with him ‘like a rock’.
