Mumbai: Union minister Nitin Gadkari on Saturday said he does not aspire to be the Prime Minister and is “content” with what he has achieved.

Asked about strained relations of the BJP with allies — the Telugu Desam Party, Shiv Sena and Akali Dal — and if he could emerge as a consensus candidate if his party fails toget the required numbers in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, he said the BJP would retain power under Narendra Modi’s leadership. “I am content and not dreaming of becoming the Prime Minister nor do I aspire for it. I am confident that the party has elected Mr Modi and under his leadership alone we will fight and win the 2019 election,” the Union minister said.
