Reacting on the statement of AICC Vice-President Rahul Gandhi that terrorist activities had started in J&K after NDA Government came in power, Union minister of micro small and medium enterprises (MSME) Giriraj Singh said that Rahul had no issue to talk about and he was doing politics to oppose.
The minister was in Ludhiana to attend meetings arranged by industrial organizations and he stated that Rahul Gandhi was having no issue and hence was giving such statements. Singh stated that BJP will gain majority in Jharkhand as well as Jammu and Kashmir. He said, “this time Ballot will win in J&K and not bullet. The poll results will make it clear.”
