New Delhi: BJP working president Jagat Prakash Nadda is set to formally take over the reins of the party from Amit Shah on Monday when the BJP will initiate the process of electing a new party boss.
Nadda, who filed his nomination Monday morning, in all likelihood, will be elected unopposed.
The BJP is expected to host a grand function at the central headquarters, which will be attended by all functionaries of the party. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah are expected to deliver speeches as well as formally congratulating Nadda on his elevation.
Sources said Nadda’s name will be proposed by the party’s ex-chiefs and parliamentary board members, Amit Shah, Rajnath Singh and Nitin Gadkari. The proposal will be seconded by other members of the BJP National Council.
