Even though hectic negotiations are on by opposition parties to field a joint candidate in this year’s Presidential polls to stop the saffron surge in the country, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief Amit Shah is relaxed about it. While speaking to Aaj Tak during an event, Shah said BJP is yet to decide on its candidate for the upcoming Presidential polls, reported news agency PTI while adding that party has virtually rejected Shiv Sena’s proposal for RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat to be the ruling combine’s nominee.

Watch what Amit Shah said:

“Even if I have a name on my mind, it has to be discussed within the party first,” he said. He also rejected the Shiv Sena’s proposal regarding Bhagwat, saying that party has itself ruled it out. Speaking on Kashmir, Shah said Narendra-Modi led government will soon control the situation in the state. “There is a big gap between the reality and the projection of the Kashmir situation and the trouble was confined to three and half districts,” he said.

He added that the government is keeping a close eye on the situation in the Valley. Shah also attacked the Congress for criticising the government, claiming that it had no right to do so as the Kashmir problem was an outcome of the policies of its governments since Independence. Talking about Rajinikanth’s hint at joining politics, Shah said the decision has to be taken by the actor himself and his party welcomed all good people to its fold.

Watch what Nitin Gadkari said:

He also praised Modi government for the work it has done in last three years by saying it has won the people’s trust and added that the poor have the belief that it was working for their welfare. In a democracy the “biggest certificate is the people’s verdict” and the masses have time and again underscored their support for the BJP-led NDA government, he said in a reference to the BJP’s win in several state polls, reported PTI.
