Amit Shah retained as BJP chief

By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, Jan 24 - BJP president Amit Shah, credited with taking the party�s membership to a new high and leading it to power in four States, was today elected unopposed for a new term with Prime Minister Narendra Modi leading party bigwigs in his endorsement.

Modi, a number of his Cabinet colleagues, including Rajnath Singh, M Venkaiah Naidu and Nitin Gadkari, besides BJP Chief Ministers, among others, proposed Shah�s name during the nomination process in which no other leader joined the fray.

Shah�s unanimous election for a three-year term is in line with the party�s tradition of choosing its president with a consensus, an outcome virtually guaranteed after Modi and RSS, the party�s ideological mentor which has always had a say in the matter, threw their weight behind his continuance. � PTI
