Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal cautioned the voters today that BJP chief Amit Shah could be made home minister if PM Narendra Modi will win the LokSabha Elections again.
VDPAssociates, a poll tracking agency, had tweeted on Thursday that Amit Shah is "positioning" himself for the role of the home minister if PM Modi returns.
To this tweet, Kejriwal retweeted:
"Countrymen, please think when you vote. If (PM) Modi returns to power, Amit Shah will become the home minister. What would happen to a country when Amit Shah is its home minister; think about this and vote."
Shah was the home minister in Gujarat during PM Modi's tenure as a CM of the state. He had resigned in 2010 after the CBI named him as an accused in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case. He was then arrested and jailed in the same year and even got bailed in three months. In 2014, Mr Shah along with 16 others was discharged in the case by the trial court and the Bombay High Court.
Last month, Kejriwal's party had held alliance talks with the Congress for the May 12th polls in Delhi. He had said that he would do anything to save the country from PM Modi and Amit Shah.
"The country is in danger. We will do anything to save it. Our effort to save the country from Narendra Modi and Amit Shah will continue," he had said amid uncertainty over an alliance with the Congress in the Lok Sabha polls.
However, the alliance did not materialize as the Congress refused to have a tie-up in Punjab and Haryana with AAP.
