BJP president Rajnath Singh has indicated that he will not be part of the government if his party comes to power after the Lok Sabha elections.
"I am the president of the party. My responsibilities have been fixed beforehand. When I wasn't the president, I was in the government," Rajnath Singh told NDTV on Friday.
"My responsibilities are already decided and I think, in the BJP, I have many colleagues who are capable who should be given a chance in the government," he added.
Rajnath Singh categorically said Narendra Modi will be the prime minister if the party comes to power.
"No matter what happens, under any circumstances, Modi will be India's prime minister.
"I want to clarify this as president of the party, because just by sitting in an office, people can't run a government," he added.
