RA­J­NATH’S CON­FES­SION

India Today - - UPFRONT -

Freudian slip? In­ter­act­ing with re­porters in Mumbai on June 8, Union min­is­ter for home Ra­j­nath Singh an­nounced that the Cen­tre will soon come up with an in­te­grated per­ma­nent so­lu­tion on Kash­mir. Asked whether it will in­clude re­mov­ing Ar­ti­cle 370, he first re­fused com­ment, then smiled and said, “Aapki manokamna poori hogi (your wish will be ful­filled).” Half an hour later, when BJP spokesper­son Mad­hav Bhan­dari told him his state­ment could well make head­lines the next day, Singh shrugged and said, “I was re­fer­ring to farm­ers’ is­sues.”
