Mansukh Mandaviya, a former BJP grassroots worker, has risen through the political ranks to become India's Union Health Minister, taking the oath for the second time on Sunday.

Mandaviya, previously a Rajya Sabha member, won his first Lok Sabha seat from Porbandar, Gujarat, overcoming Congress' Lalit Vasoya with a significant margin of over 3.8 lakh votes.

Nicknamed the 'Green MP' for his habit of cycling to Parliament, Mandaviya, 51, has consistently advanced within the BJP since joining the party's youth wing.
