BJP president Amit Shah arrived here on Tuesday on a three-day visit as part of his nation- wide tour to expand the saffron party in Lakshadweep. Shah took part in booth conventions and party core committee meetings to explore the possibility of strengthening BJP in this island, the party sources said.
It is for the first time that a BJP national president is visiting the Union territory of Lakshadweep. He would also attend functions at Androth island and pay house visits, the sources said.
