Punjab minister slams Rahul for drug remarks
Ludhiana: Punjab minister and BJP leader Madan Mohan Mittal on Saturday said Congress leader Rahul Gandhi`s remarks that 7 out of 10 youths in Punjab have a drug problem are derogatory in nature and demanded an apology from him.
"These remarks not only lack reality but are derogatory and defamatory for the youth of Punjab," Mittal told reporters here.
