Born in Gujarat in 1964, Shah has been a close and longstanding aide of Modi and was a minister in his government in Gujarat before becoming the BJP president in 2014 after the party came to power at the Centre. 

He joined the Modi government as home minister after it took charge for a second term in 2019.
