2. Amit Shah
Amit Shah, the Union Home Minister, is generally regarded as the most powerful leader in the central government after PM Modi. Of late, he is in the news for playing a vital role in the abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir and the amendment of the Citizenship Bill. As the BJP party president, his character was immense in the saffron party’s thumping victory in the 17th Lok Sabha polls in 2019. Protest against Citizenship Bill across the country and attack on JNU students have dented his reputation. His present Twitter followers are over 17M.
