The chief minister lauded the political journey of Shah that began in 1983 as a student leader in the Akhil Bharatiya Vidhyarthi Parishad; then he joined the BJP in 1996. She said, in the party, Shah had started his career as a ward-secretary of youth wing and then very skillfully strengthened the party to climb to the post of national president.
Referring to the extraordinary election campaigning works done in Uttar Pradesh by Shah in recently concluded lok Sabha elections, which resulted into thumping victory for the BJP and helped Narendra Modi to become the Prime Minister, Patel said, he (Shah) will continue to work as the national president for extending his victory march for the party in other states of the country.
In her congratulation message, Patel expressed a wish that the party will continue to get skilled leadership and guidance from Shah for strengthening the party at the national level.
