The BJP parliamentary board appointed former Union Minister JP Nadda as the working president of the party, who will function under Amit Shah. This is the first time BJP will have a working president, under Shah. Nadda will work under Shah till the new party chief is elected.
Nanda was widely expected to succeed Shah since he was not made a minister this time. The BJP has never had a working president since it's inception in 1980. Nadda is considered close to RSS and is known to be a low profile leader at managing organisational affairs.
