'Will complete his tenure': Amit Shah reacts to Kejriwal's 'PM Modi to retire' claim

PTC News Desk: Home Minister Amit Shah slammed Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday for claiming that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is laying the groundwork for Shah to succeed him as PM in the future.

Earlier, the Delhi CM attacked PM Modi as someone who wants "one nation, one leader" in his first press conference after being released from jail.


"These people question the INDIA bloc about the prime minister's face. I ask the BJP who will be their Prime Minister. Modi ji will turn 75 on September 17 of next year. In 2014, he established a rule that persons over the age of 75 would be deemed retired. They retired LK Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi, and Sumitra Mahajan," Kejriwal stated.

"He'll retire next year. He is seeking votes to make Amit Shah Prime Minister. Will Amit Shah keep Modi ji's promise?" asked Kejriwal

Reacting to Kejriwal's claims, the Home Minister told reporters that the Delhi Chief Minister is wrong in believing that PM Modi will stand aside when he reaches the age of 75.

"I'd like to inform Arvind Kejriwal and his colleagues, as well as the INDIA bloc, that the BJP's constitution has no mention of the 75-year-old limitation rules. PM Modi will only complete his tenure, but he will continue to lead the country in the future. There is no confusion in the BJP," Shah stated.

The Home Minister also questioned Kejriwal's "misplaced confidence" and described the interim bail as a temporary relief, but not one that will free the Delhi Chief Minister from the liquor policy issue, in which former Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia is also in jail.

"Arvind Kejriwal has been granted temporary bail to run election campaigns. He petitioned the Supreme Court to overturn his arrest, but the court refused. Shah stated that the interim bail was only granted till June 1 and that on June 2, he must report to the agency.

"If Arvind Kejriwal considers this as a clean chit, then his understanding of the law is weak," he stated.
