Asked that some Muslim leaders had objected to the Lok Sabha poll schedule as it clashed with Ramzan, Singh said it was a Constitutional necessity that election results had to be declared before May 26.

"Despite this, I pray to the (EC) that even if it does not change the election date, make a change in voting time in such a way so that it facilitates voting (among Muslims)," Singh said.

Queried on the brickbats he received on for stressing that place proof of the February 26 air strike on a terror camp in Pakistan's Balakot before the international community, like the US had done after killing terrorist Osama bin Laden, Singh said he was "grateful" to people who trolled him.

"The and the nation's security should never be made political issues. The has issued strict direction in this regard," he quipped.
