Jagat Prakash Nadda will continue to remain the Bhartiya Janata Party’s president till June 2024 as his tenure extension was approved at the BJP National Executive meeting on Tuesday.

According to an ANI report, the proposal for Naddda’s extension was moved by Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh and was agreed upon unanimously by the members of the National Executive.

Addressing a press conference on the sidelines of the second day National Executive meet at the NDMC Convention Centre in the national capital on Tuesday, Shah said, “I am confident that under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and (JP) Nadda-ji, the BJP will win the 2024 Lok Sabha elections by an even bigger majority. Modi-ji will return to lead the country as the Prime Minister.”

Lauding the efforts of Nadda in his role as the party’s national chief, ever since assuming his office on January 20, 2020, the same year the Covid-19 pandemic gripped the entire country, Shah said the party made significant strides under his leadership.

“During the pandemic, our party did significant work under Nadda-ji’s leadership, be it providing food and ration to the poor for free or taking people affected by the virus to hospitals for check-ups and treatment,” Shah added.

He further claimed that of the political parties in the country, the BJP is the only one which works to further democracy.

“BJP is the most democratically run party in the country. From the establishment of the Bharatiya Jan Sangh to this day, the elections in the BJP — from the booth-level to the national president — have always been in accordance with the party’s constitution,” Shah added.

The Union Home Minister further said under Nadda’s leadership, the party organisation has worked on the principle of ‘Seva Hi Sangathan’ (service is organisation), right from the booth to the national levels.

PM Modi will address the concluding session of the key meeting at the NDMC Convention Centre in Delhi today.

There are nearly 350 leaders from across the country in the BJP’s national executive, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union ministers, chief ministers and other senior members from various states.
