Addressing a rally in Vikarabad on Saturday, Home Minister Amit Shah responded to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's recent comments about the future leadership of the BJP. Kejriwal had suggested that Prime Minister Narendra Modi might be grooming Shah to succeed him. Shah refuted this claim, asserting that there's no such rule in the BJP constitution regarding the retirement age of 75.

Kejriwal, in his press conference after being released from jail, criticized Modi for allegedly grooming Shah to take over, citing the retirement of senior BJP leaders like LK Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi. Kejriwal argued that Modi, who turns 75 next year, should retire according to the precedent he set. He also implied that Shah was being positioned as the next Prime Minister.

Responding to Kejriwal's statements, Shah dismissed the notion that Modi would step aside at 75, stating that there's no such provision in the BJP's constitution. Shah emphasized that Modi will continue to lead the country. He labeled Kejriwal's comments as a misunderstanding and reiterated that there's no confusion within the BJP regarding leadership.

Shah further criticized Kejriwal's confidence, pointing out that the interim bail granted to him was temporary relief and not a clean chit. He highlighted that Kejriwal has to surrender after June 1 in connection with the liquor policy case. Shah dismissed Kejriwal's interpretation of the bail as a sign of his understanding of the law being weak.

Kejriwal's bail conditions prevent him from attending his office, signing official documents, or visiting the Delhi secretariat without permission from the Lieutenant Governor. The Supreme Court granted interim bail considering the ongoing Lok Sabha elections and the complexity of the case, as it's not feasible to conclude arguments or deliver a verdict on his petition challenging his arrest by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) at this stage.

Shah's remarks at the rally in Vikarabad indicate the BJP's firm stance on Modi's leadership and dismiss any speculation about Shah taking over as Prime Minister. Kejriwal's comments, though sparking political debate, are refuted by Shah, who asserts Modi's continued leadership.
