His multifaceted roles within the BJP, including overseeing the party’s social media cell and serving as a district in charge, underscore his dedication and leadership within the organization.

With his newfound responsibilities in both the Ministry of Textiles and the Ministry of External Affairs, Margherita is poised to make significant contributions to the government’s agenda, leveraging his expertise and experience in both domestic and international affairs.
