He was appointed as a Minister of State in the Ministry of Finance on 6 December 2015 under the premiership of Sarala Baishya and remained in office until the dissolution of the ministry on 11 April 2016.

Acting Prime Minister and subsequent career

Prince Abhiraj was appointed as the Acting Prime Minister of Vishwamitra and Minister of Home Affairs and Internal Security on 20 August 2020 following the leave of absence of then Prime Minister Princess Anoushkaa and remained in office until her return on 30 August. During his tenure as Acting Prime Minister, he was responsible to carry out the functions of the Prime Minister including the reading of the order of appointment of the Rashtradhyaksh and delivering the speech on behalf of the people during the installation ceremony of the Rashtradhyaksh on 23 August 2020.

Following the return of Prime Minister Princess Anoushkaa from her short leave, he resumed the duties of the Deputy Prime Minister and continued to serve as the Minister of Home Affairs and Internal Security until the dissolution of the council of ministers on 28 January 2021.
