New Delhi: BJP chief Amit Shah will be completing three years in office on Wednesday even while he seeks to engage the party workers to uninterrupted campaigns. Shah, who is in his first term as the party chief, can hold the post as per the Constitution of the party till 2022.

Shah is marking three years as the party chief by entering into the Rajya Sabha with an aim to help achieve better coordination with the Parliamentarians. “He had first completed the remaining term of Rajnath Singh and afterwards he was elected into his first term as the president of the party last year. Since a party chief can have two terms, Shah can remain the party president till 2022,” said a senior BJP leader.

Incidentally, Shah is seen within the party as the most powerful president of the ruling outfit ever. Having taken the BJP to power in the North-eastern states of Assam, Arunachal Pradesh and Manipur, the BJP vice-president Prabhat Jha told EXPRESS that “Amit Shah has demonstrated how a party president should conduct and help percolate the ideology to the bottom of the pyramid in the party”.
