One could argue, but with a good reason, and it is too early to figure out on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s successor as the PM of India. It is given that Modi will be the PM for at least one more term and his successor will take over from him in 2024 at the earliest. Based on a review of work done by some of the BJP leaders, one of these 3 BJP leaders can be PM Modi’s successor in 2024.

Amit Shah: The most apparent choice of PM Modi’s heir (successor) that comes to mind is, of course, the modern times of Chanakya, Amit Shah. Still, until this moment, we have seen slightly scant to indicate that Shah has any will to succeed Modi as Prime Minister. Shah seems far more prone to manage BJP’s affairs from outside the government and strengthen the party as the prime strategist. For Amit Shah to be considered a serious competitor to the throne of the PM after Modi leaves the office, he is the first who will take the responsibility of a vital ministry in Modi’s cabinet.

Smriti Irani: Another promising heir of Modi is Smriti Irani. She has shown some great determination and guts in laying annoy to the Gandhi’s fortress in Uttar Pradesh, Amethi. In 2014, Smriti Irani was honoured the HRD Ministry which for ideological reasons is one of the most vital ministries if not the most vital. She had a few glittering moments during her tenure as MHRD but overall, her performance was a massive failure. Later, she was shifted to the Textiles Ministry and there she has done fair enough task. Although Smriti is aggressive, emotive, a very good speaker and largely popular among BJP supporters, it is rare that she will ever become the Prime Minister of India.

Devendra Fadnavis: One of the few personalities that have emerged in the BJP post-2014 is, of course, Maharashtra’s Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis. He has seen his popularity climb over the past couple of years. His inability to control the disobedient mobs among the minority community and his appeasement of them have not gone down well with his party supporters.

The year 2017 is about to end and it would be impulsive to reach conclusions about PM Modi’s heir. But it does seem very hopeful that if Amit Shah isn’t willing to assume the leadership of the world’s largest democracy, then almost it will be Yogi Adityanath.
