Guwahati: On the occasion of Union Home Minister Amit Shah's 57th birthday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union ministers, BJP leaders, and members of the opposition offered wishes to him.

Amit Anil Chandra Shah (born October 22, 1964) is an Indian politician who is presently the Minister of Home Affairs and the country's first Minister of Cooperation. From 2014 until 2020, he was the President of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Since 2014, he has also served as the head of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA). In the 2019 Indian general elections, he was elected to the Lok Sabha, the lower house of Parliament, from Gandhinagar. In 2017, he was elected as a member of the Rajya Sabha, the upper chamber of Parliament, from Gujarat. He is the youngest full-time Home Minister in the country, having been sworn in at the age of 54. He is the BJP's main strategist and Na's close adviser.

During the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, Shah was the BJP's in-charge of India's largest and most politically important state, Uttar Pradesh. The BJP and its coalition partner, the NDA, won 73 of the 80 seats. As a result, Shah came to national prominence, and in July 2014, he was named the party's national president.

In 2017, he was credited for helping the BJP win elections in Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Gujarat, and Manipur, although the Akali-BJP coalition lost power in the Punjab election. In the states of Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan, and Madhya Pradesh, the party lost power in 2018. Under Shah's leadership, the BJP gained 303 seats in the 2019 Indian general election, giving it a majority.
