Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Monday said Jammu and Kashmir was an integral part of India and will always remain one, IANS reported.
“Nobody can take away the state from us,” IANS quoted Rajnath as saying.
According to report queried about the government’s stand on the contentious Section 370 of the Constitution, which gives special status to Jammu and Kashmir, the Minister appeared to fumble for a while and then asked the student who had asked her to raise this question.
“If I utter a word on this, it will become international news… You should wait… Some decisions have to be taken with great seriousness and deliberations,” the report quoted Rajnath as saying.
He also said that BJP’s differences with Congress President Rahul Gandhi were “political and nor personal” in nature.
Speaking at an interactive event at a management institute in Lucknow, his Lok Sabha constituency, Singh said the Bharatiya Janata Party always believed in differing on political and ideological issues and never took things to personal level.
