“On inflation, I am with the public that yes, there should not be a burden on them but the Opposition has no right (to speak on it). They should look at their own tenure,” Nirmala Sitharaman said while talking to reporters after casting her vote here in the Karnataka Assembly elections.
The union minister also termed the Congress promise of banning the Bajrang Dal as “an example of stupidity”.
