National security, terrorism most important issues facing India: Arun Jaitley


Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on April 15 rejected the opposition’s argument that elections should not be fought on national security issues, saying security and terrorism are the most important issues in long run while all other challenges are capable of early resolution.

He also said that the biggest challenge before India is the issue of Jammu & Kashmir and terror as it concerns nation’s sovereignty.

“India’s opposition argues that elections have to be fought on the ‘real issues’ and not on the issues of national security. It is my endeavour to argue that national security and terrorism are the most important issues which concern India in the long run.

All other challenges are capable of early resolution,” Jaitley said in a facebook post titled ‘Why Jammu and Kashmir, and new approach to terrorism will remain a key political issue’. Read More
