“We must ensure that he is successful. Whatever he asks for, we must deliver. As a party worker, we must walk with our core values in the journey ahead with love for our motherland,” he added.

Home Minister Amit Shah, who handed over the presidentship of the BJP to JP Nadda, said that under his successor's leadership the party will become stronger and expand further.

“Heartiest congratulations to JP Nadda Ji on being elected the national president of the Bharatiya Janata Party. I firmly believe that under Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji's guidance and your leadership, the BJP will become stronger and expand even further,” Amit Shah said.

“The party will benefit from Nadda ji's organizational skills and experience and will set new records,” he added.

JP Nadda on Monday was elected unopposed as the BJP national president after he emerged as the only leader in the fray following the nomination process in which his candidature was endorsed by top party leaders.

Senior BJP leader Radha Mohan Singh, who is the incharge of the organisational election process, made the announcement at the party headquarters in New Delhi.

Nadda has earlier served as the party's working president. He will serve for three years at the helm.
