Amit Shah Assumes Charge As Union Home Minister

Date:

New Delhi: Top BJP leader Amit Shah assumed charge as Union Home Minister and Minister of Cooperation on Tuesday in New Delhi. Shah took charge as Home Minister for the second consecutive term, holding the portfolio since 2019.

Upon his arrival at the ministry’s office in North Block, he was welcomed by Ministers of State (Home) Nityanand Rai and Bandi Sanjay Kumar, along with Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla. Earlier in the day, Amit Shah paid tributes to police personnel who lost their lives in the line of duty at the National Police Memorial in Chanakyapuri, the national capital.

Shah expressed gratitude to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for reassigning him the responsibilities as Minister of Home Affairs and Minister of Cooperation in the newly formed Bharatiya Janata Party government. “Gratitude to PM Shri @narendramodiJi for reposing trust and reassigning me the roles of Minister of Home Affairs and Minister of Cooperation,” Shah said in a post on ‘X’.

Speaking about his role in the Home Ministry, Shah said, “In Modi 3.0, the MHA will continue to accelerate and strengthen security initiatives and introduce new approaches to realize PM Modi’s vision of a secure Bharat.” On empowering farmers and villages through the Ministry of Cooperation, Shah said, “Under the astute leadership of Modi Ji, the Ministry of Cooperation will remain committed to empowering farmers and villages with the vision of ‘Sahakaar Se Samriddhi’.”

The 59-year-old BJP leader, a trusted confidante of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the party’s key strategist, served as the Union Home Minister in the previous Modi government. Shah had won Gujarat’s Gandhinagar seat by a huge margin of 7,44,716 votes. Shah gathered 10,10,972 votes, beating Congress’ Sonal Patel, who got 2,66,256 votes. In the 2023 Lok Sabha elections, he won Gujarat’s Gandhinagar seat by the same margin of 7,44,716 votes.

One of his significant achievements during his term as Union Home Minister in the previous Narendra Modi government was the abrogation of Article 370, which granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir. He also played an important role in the passage of the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, which aimed to grant citizenship to persecuted minorities from the neighboring countries of Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh.
