Adviser to Rahul Gandhi: One job BJP chief Amit Shah would never take

The duo of Amit Shah and Prime Minsiter Narendra Modi has scripted many success stories for Bharatiya Janata Party

Bharatiya Janata Party president Amit Shah has got the tag of being a master strategist, who has scripted multiple success stories for the saffron party. It seems there is hardly any political task left that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s man friday could not deliver on. However, there is one job that even some one as efficient as Shah would not dare to take. Yes,  you are right-the job is being  an adviser to the Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi.

“I will never accept this job,” Shah said, when asked what would he do if he were asked to advise Rahul Gandhi after the Congress’ poor show in the recent elections.

 Shah was speaking at an interactive session at the India Today Conclave here tonight via video link.

Asked if he and Prime Minister Narendra Modi had no reason to worry as long as the Congress was led by Rahul Gandhi, Shah said, “We don’t depend on our rivals’ weakness.”

To a question about his “earlier stint as a stock broker”, Shah said, “I earned enough money then. (“Paisa toh maine theek thak kamaya tha”).

On his relationship with Modi, Shah said, “My relationship with him is the same as it should be between a PM and (ruling) party president.”
