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.

Minister agreed over this issue, but gave no commitment as what he will do to tackle it.

Make in India is not a slogan but emotion:

He told the industrialists that Make in India was not just a slogan but an ’emotion’ for the Government and he stated that Ludhiana cannot be ignored while working on this slogan.

    Look who's talking now??? Did Giriraj forget that it was the BJP leaders who opposed the UPA policies in last 5yrs without reason & then conviniently made a U-turn and adopted those same policies & schemes now that they are in power. The BJP set the trend of opposing for the sake of opposing, without reason & continously adjourned parliment sessions after sessions & did not allow the govt. to work. Rahul has protested on valid issues of maintaining the dignity of the parliment & giving a voice to the people of India. Does the Modi govt. not want to listen to the voice of the people now that they have won the elections??

      Giri Raj ji you are very right. Rahul has nothing else to say except to be critical for the sake of it. Rahul is in trouble when he says something and still in trouble if he says nothing. Black band on his mouth is just what he needs all the time. As long as Rahul remains Congress leader and spokesman BJP will never get a strong opposition leader in the parliament and it will reduce Congress to less than 40 in next LS election.

        Opposition's role is to oppose. No matter what! Even if it is good proposal or adapted from their own not so good a proposal, they still have to oppose because they are in opposition!

          Rahul hi has lost the election for his party, and yet the media gives him too much coverage. Indra, Rajiv and Rahul have never addressed any important issue completely and logically. They have ruled India for quite along time, and they should not be paid attention to.
