In the 2019 Indian general elections from Gandhinagar, Amit was elected to the lower house of Parliament, Lok Sabha. He had been elected earlier as a member of the upper house of Parliament, Rajya Sabha, from Gujarat in 2017. Moreover, Sworn in at the age of 54, he is the youngest serving full-time Home Minister. Therefore, he is the chief strategist of the BJP and a close aide to Narendra Modi.

While in his college days, Amit was a member of the ABVP, the student wing of the RSS. Similarly, at the age of 18, he secured a position in the ABVP and joined the BJP in 1987. He was first elected in Gujarat as the MLA for a seat partly covering Ahmedabad, Sarkhej in 1997 (a by-election).

However, Amit continued to hold it in the 1998, 2002, and 2007 elections until the seat’s dissolution in 2008. Then, in 2012, he was elected from the nearby Naranpura. Similarly, as a close associate of Chief Minister Narendra Modi, he held executive portfolios in the Gujarat state government.

Since the year 2014, Amit has played an organizing and membership-promotional role in the elections of many states.

But, he lost ground in Delhi and the large eastern state of Bihar in 2015.

After a year, the BJP won 303 seats to get a majority in the 2019 Indian general election under Shah’s leadership.
