Communist Party of India (Marxist) leader Brinda Karat on Wednesday said that choosing BJP General Secretary and Prime Minister Narendra Modi's close aide Amit Shah as party president reflects the kind of path the BJP wants to take.

"Choice of the president of a political party is an internal matter of that party. But the BJP has chosen the man who was banned from entering campaigns because of his hate speeches. He was also charge sheeted in fake encounter cases. Choosing him has shows what way the BJP wants to take," said Karat.

Earlier today, the BJP had announced that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's close aide and general secretary Amit Shah will take over as the party's new president from previous incumbent and now Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh.
