Union Minister for Fisheries, Animal Husbandry and Dairying Giriraj Singh on Tuesday said his political innings may "come to an end" with the completion of Prime Minister Narendra Modi' second term.
On being asked regarding his, chief ministerial probable after the assembly polls in Bihar next year, BJP's firebrand leader and Begusarai MP, Singh made such statement.
"I am one of those party workers who entered public life to fulfill the dream of integration of Kashmir pursuing which Syama Prasad Mookerji had sacrificed his life. Modi has achieved that," Singh said.
I did not enter politics to acquire positions of power. So now I see my political innings nearing its end. It may come to an end with the completion of Modi's ongoing tenure, Singh added.
Singh contested from Begusarai, a seat from where he claimed he was not comfortable since his stronghold was Nawada.
Singh had won the Begusarai seat by defeating former JNU president Kanhaiya Kumar by over four lakh votes and retained the Lok Sabha seat for the BJP. He was later sworn in as Ministry of Animal Husbandry, Dairying, and Fisheries in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s cabinet.
