Chennai, Dec 26: Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev, seen a staunch supporter of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has said it cannot be said who will be the next prime minister of the country. This remark comes months ahead of next year's crucial Lok Sabha elections, which are likely to be conducted in April or May 2019.

Political situation difficult, cant say who will be next PM’: Baba Ramdev

Lok Sabha elections 2019 would be a big challenge for Modi especially with the opposition parties joining hands to defeat the BJP which has been in power since 2014. Anti-incumbency factor and a host of other issues which the opposition parties are raking up are some things for which the BJP needs to come up with answers during the campaigning.
