Arun Jaitley, BJP’s go-to man in Parliament, court and political battlefield
By Hindustan Times 24-Aug-2019
The affable Delhi-born leader rose through the ranks of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) effortlessly, played the role of a troubleshooter for his organisation in the courtroom, parliament and political battlefield.
He was one of the most modern, suave and English-speaking faces of a party that struggled for years to shed the image of being an orthodox outfit.

Jaitley was the darling of the media, and redefined the way the BJP engaged with television channels and newspapers by grooming a generation of spokespersons and leaders who now occupy high offices in the Narendra Modi government.
As chief spokesperson of the party, he was always at the forefront to distill the BJP’s position on critical matters in a form that rest of the party could easily pass on to the masses.
His official residence on Ashoka Road was the party’s ‘media war room’ for years. Party spokespersons would visit his bungalow, where he never lived during the years it was allotted to him, for strategy meetings and Jaitley would articulate to them - over a cup of jasmine tea – the BJP’s response for television debates.

Jaitley, who used to live in his Kailash Colony bungalow, would visit the Ashoka road house every afternoon after finishing his work in court, to meet party leaders and for strategy meetings.
He earned the reputation of a leader with a Midas touch after winning the BJP crucial elections between 2004 and 2014 in states where he was the in-charge, such as Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Karnataka.
