Off The Cuff with Birender Singh

Union steel minister Birender Singh shared his experience, especially the difference between his Congress years and now his role as a minister in the NDA government; India’s steel industry; the menace of mob lynching; his home-state Haryana and the dry wit of the people from the state. In between, the BJP leader also cracked a few jokes.

“India should never be reservation-free because the exploitation, maybe of SC and other communities in this country, is not recent happenings. For centuries, we were being exploited by the upper strata of the society and we deserve all kinds of reservation,” Singh told the audience.
