New Delhi: Union Minister Giriraj Singh, known for stoking controversies with his remarks today hinted that he may bid goodbye to politics after Modi government completes its second term. Virtually ruling himself out of the contention for chief minister race in Bihar, the BJP leader said that time has come for him to retire from politics.

“I am not a candidate for the chief minister’s post in Bihar. Now the time has come for me that I should bid adieu to politics,” Singh told newsmen.

In a nostalgic tone, the Minister for Animal Husbandry, Dairying and Fisheries said, “I saw a great leader like Narendra Modi becoming the Prime Minister of the country.”

In reference to abrogation of Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir, Singh said, “When I joined politics, I came with the call for the integration of Kashmir with India. For the same our ideologue Syama Prasad Mookerjee gave up his life.”

“Slowly all our wishes are getting fulfiled and I hope it will continue in the future. And after that what is the scope left for me to remain in politics,” he added.
