New Delhi: BJP president and Union Health Minister JP Nadda has been appointed as the Leader of House in Rajya Sabha after Piyush Goyal was elected to the Lok Sabha in the recent elections.

Nadda, who will occupy seat no: 1 in the Upper House, was re-elected as a Rajya Sabha MP from Gujarat this April. His name was forwarded to Rajya Sabha Chairman Jagdeep Dhankhar last week.

Congress Rajya Sabha Chief Whip Jairam Ramesh, who is also Congress General Secretary (Communications) congratulated Nadda on becoming the Leader of the House in the Rajya Sabha.

“As (former Rajya Sabha Chairman) M Venkaiah Naidu garu might have said – if the Leader of the House can accommodate, the Opposition can cooperate.”
