Modi on Thursday resigned from Vadodara seat, saying he looks forward to this wonderful opportunity to serve Ganga Maa and work for Varanasi’s development.

“I will represent Varanasi in Lok Sabha & I look forward to this wonderful opportunity to serve Ganga Maa & work for Varanasi’s development,” Modi tweeted.

Under Amit Shah’s supervision, the BJP won 71 seats in Uttar Pradesh out of 80 constituencies.

If BJP gives ticket to Amit Shah from Vadodara, it will enhance his role in the Central politics and governance. As a Member of Parliament, Amit Shah can be inducted into Modi’s Cabinet. Earlier, he had served as Minister of State for Home in Modi-led government in Gujarat.

If Amit Shah chooses to contest from Vadodara, his Naranpura constituency in Ahmedabad may go to Narhari Amin, who quit Congress to join BJP ahead of the 2012 assembly elections.

Meanwhile, there are also reports that Amit Shah may be given an important role in the party as states like Maharashtra, Haryana are going to the polls soon.
