On May 10, even before the polling for 2019 Lok Sabha elections got over, Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party supremo Arvind Kejriwal has ‘warned’ voters that if the BJP comes to power, then Amit Shah would become the Union Home Minister.
देशवासियों, वोट देते वक़्त सोचना। अगर मोदी जी दोबारा आ गए तो अमित शाह गृह मंत्री होंगे। जिस देश का गृह मंत्री अमित शाह हो, उस देश का क्या होगा, ये सोच के वोट डालना। https://t.co/ws2ZCA7hjv

He had asked voters to be cautious before voting.
Fast forward 20 days later, BJP has emerged as a single largest party at 303 seats crossing the magic figure of 272, by a huge margin. Last evening Narendra Modi swore in as Prime Minister for the second time along with his council of ministers. Earlier today, the Rashtrapati Bhavan issued a press release which showed Shah was allotted the Home Ministry.
Twitter users dug up Arvind Kejriwal’s tweet to again make fun of him.
Amit Shah IS Home Minister Now ?? https://t.co/Z5PqE3K5fJ

Some Twitter users even mocked him and thanked him how they listened to him for the first time and voted as he cautioned them.

Clearly, people couldn’t have it enough.

While AAP supporters come to term with their chief’s prediction coming true, BJP supporters are elated with the portfolio allotted to Amit Shah.
