'I have a bad news for him': Amit Shah on Arvind Kejriwal's 'Modi will retire' claim

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 15 May 2024, 06:14 pm

New Delhi/IBNS: Union Home Minister Amit Shah has strongly rebutted Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's claim that BJP's supreme leader Narendra Modi won't continue as the Prime Minister till 2029.

In an interview with ANI's Smita Prakash, Shah said, "They are only contesting elections on 22 seats...No need to take him seriously. Prime Minister Modi will remain till 2029, and Arvind Kejriwal I have bad news for you...Even after 2029 PM Modi will lead us..."

On May 11, Kejriwal, who is now out on an interim bail in the liquor policy case, claimed Modi won't continue as the Prime Minister beyond September 2025 as he will turn 75, the cut-off age in the BJP to hold any post.

"PM Modi is turning 75 on September 17. He made a rule that leaders in the party would retire after 75 years. Lal Krishna Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi, Sumitra Mahajan, and Yashwant Sinha have retired, and now PM Modi is going to retire on September 17," Kejriwal said.

In a startling claim, Kejriwal also said Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath will be replaced by someone new in the post after the Lok Sabha polls.

Kejriwal said, "After winning elections, Narendra Modi finished the careers of Advani-ji (LK Advani) Murli Manohar Joshi, Sumitra Mahajan, Shivraj Singh Chouhan who won them Madhya Pradesh, Vasundhara Raje, Khattar-saab (ML Khattar), Dr. Raman Singh.."

"The next number is Yogi Adityanath. I guarantee you he will replace Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister within two months if he wins the elections," he added.

Kejriwal was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate on March 21 in the Delhi liquor policy case from his official residence in Delhi.

The central investigative agency asserts that he played a central role in the scam and was directly implicated in soliciting kickbacks from liquor barons.
