After assuming charge as Union Home Minister and Minister of Cooperation on Tuesday, senior BJP leader Amit Shah said that the Modi government will bolster India’s security to serve as a bulwark against terrorism and naxalism.

Shah took charge as Home Minister for the second consecutive term, having held the portfolio since 2019.

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 added, “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 confidant of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the party’s key strategist, served as the Union Home Minister in the previous Modi government.

Shah won Gujarat’s Gandhinagar seat by a huge margin of 7,44,716 votes, securing 10,10,972 votes against Congress’ Sonal Patel, who received 2,66,256 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.
