Mumbai-born Amit Shah, Amit Anilchandra Shah, was working with his father in their successful PVC pipe business, before joining the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh. After joining the Sangh as a volunteer, Shah first met Narendra Modi in 1982. Modi was an RSS pracharak (propagator) and a youth-wing leader in Ahmedabad.
Since then the BJP's most successful combination Modi-Shah took the world of politics by a storm. Inspite being a stock market investor, Shah found electoral success early, when he was elected from Gujarat's Sarkhej constituency in four consecutive elections 1997, 1998, 2002 and 2007. His electoral success has only grown since then - with him winning 29 elections including various local body polls.
