Union Minister of State for Finance Shiv Pratap Shukla today condemned the terrorist attack on Jammu's Sunjuwan military camp and said an appropriate answer will be given to Pakistan.
Some Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists yesterday morning targeted the military camp in Sunjuwan, killing five Army men, including two junior commissioned officers (JCOs), and the father of a soldier.
In an operation launched by the Army, three terrorists have been gunned down by the forces so far.
Taking a jibe at rival political parties, Shukla said, "BJP gave employment to more than 10 crore people under Mudra Yojana. We believe that people are God and they (rival political parties) want to make them beggars."
He further said, "We should see PM Modi's statement in which he said that people do many types of small businesses such as selling pakoda, making tea and they are leading a life with self-respect."
On BJP's candidate for the Lok Sabha bypoll (for Gorakhpur and Phulpur), Shukla said, "The party will decide the candidate and whosoever gets the ticket, will win.
