In a swift rebuttal to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s assertions regarding the future leadership of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Union Home Minister Amit Shah reaffirmed Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s tenure and dispelled rumors of an imminent change in leadership.

Responding to Kejriwal’s remarks that PM Modi would retire after turning 75, paving the way for Shah’s ascension to the premiership, Shah delivered a firm message during a press conference in Telangana. “I want to tell Arvind Kejriwal and company that you have nothing to be happy about Modiji turning 75,” Shah stated emphatically. “It’s not written in BJP’s constitution anywhere that he can’t be the prime minister. He will be the prime minister and complete his term. There is no confusion in the party.”

Shah’s comments come in the wake of Kejriwal’s charged address at his first rally post-release from jail, where he suggested that voting for Modi in the upcoming Lok Sabha election would effectively mean endorsing Shah as his successor. Kejriwal underscored the BJP’s purported succession plan, highlighting PM Modi’s forthcoming retirement and the speculated elevation of Amit Shah.

The AAP leader’s allegations were met with skepticism by BJP spokesperson Sudhanshu Trivedi, who accused Kejriwal of projecting his own insecurities onto the BJP’s internal affairs. Trivedi contended that while Kejriwal spoke of succession within the BJP, he lacked confidence in his own party colleagues to succeed him. “Kejriwal has revealed the truth unwittingly – as someone high on liquor does – that Modi will win the election,” Trivedi quipped, dismissing Kejriwal’s assertions as unfounded.

Kejriwal’s warnings of a potential leadership shuffle in BJP-ruled states, particularly targeting Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, reflect a broader narrative of political maneuvering as India gears up for crucial electoral battles.

As the political discourse intensifies ahead of the polls, Kejriwal’s rhetoric and Shah’s rebuttal underscore the high stakes and the deep-seated rivalries shaping the contours of India’s political landscape.
