In the parliamentary election, Nadda played an important role in his home state Himachal to win all the four seats eventhough the Congress government was at the helm.

"Nadda was given more responsibilities in the elections -- right from selecting the candidates to ensuring their victory. He toured extensively all areas in the state," said the leader, who did not wish to be identified.

In the previous BJP government (2007-2012) in the state, Nadda was forced to resign as forest minister in 2010 owing to differences between him and then chief minister Prem Kumar Dhumal.
