In the early 70s, Shivraj began his career in politics by joining ABVP (Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad).

Initially, in 1990, Shivraj, at the age of 31, won the State Legislative Assembly from Budhni Constituency and beat his nearest opponent Congress by over 22,000 votes. Perhaps, he was the first leader in Indian modern history who urged the funds from the public to battle the elections and composed the popular jingle ‘one vote one note’. As his candidness knocked out the chords of the public, he was subsidised for his entire election campaign which gained him fame as a leader. After the termination of Atal Bihari Vajpayee from Vidisha parliamentary seat in 1991, he was fielded for BJP from Vidisha constituency and triumphed the seat. He turned into one of the youngest MPs.

He served as several Lok Sabha committees on Urban and Rural Development, Human Resource Development, Hindi Salahkar Samiti and Labour Welfare during this period. 

In 1998, he racked up hat trick by winning 12th Lok Sabha elections and consecutively triumphed fourth time in the 13th Lok Sabha in 1999. In this period, he served as the member of Committees on Agriculture and Public Undertakings and was also accountable as the National President of Bhartiya Janta Yuva Morcha from 2000 to 2003. He was heading the House Committee (Lok Sabha) and served as National Secretary of Bharatiya Janta Party. 

During his political journey, he organised a youth conference on ‘national security’ in the year 2000. This turned out to be a fruitful event of the year which fascinated party veterans Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Lal Krishna Advani. 

In 2004, Shivraj booked his 5th continuous winning to the 14th Lok Sabha and became a member of the Committee on Agriculture; member of the Joint Committee on Offices of Profit. As he consecutively won for five times from the same Lok Sabha seat, he turned out to be a chairman of Housing Committee of Lok Sabha. 

In 2005, Shivraj was designated as President of BJP, Madhya Pradesh and was also chosen as the state Chief Minister on November 29th.
