Bihar: Addressing an election rally in Madhubani Lok Sabha seat, Bihar, Union Home Minister Amit Shah stated that the INDIA bloc intends to rotate the PM's chair among its constituents if elected. The senior BJP leader emphasised that the country needs a strong prime minister and not "one on a yearly basis".

"They (INDIA bloc) don't have a face for the PM's post. The country has decided to give Modi ji a third term. But, can you tell me who will be the INDIA bloc's PM candidate? They are not coming to power at any cost... but still... will Mamata Banerjee become the PM or MK Stalin or Lalu Prasad?

"They have decided to rotate the PM's chair among themselves. I must say running the country is not like running a grocery store. If a situation like COVID pandemic arises, can they save the country? Will they be able to protect the country from terrorists? India needs a strong PM and not one on yearly basis," he said.

Claiming that the northern region of Bihar was earlier witnessing cattle smuggling, he said, "The NDA government is against cow slaughter... we will not allow it at any cost." On the Centre's decision to ban Popular Front of India (PFI), Shah claimed, "It was a right decision as PFI wanted to make the country an Islamic state."
