New Delhi, April 20 (IANS) Union Minister for Youth Affairs and Sports Vijay Goel on Thursday said the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)'s stand on the issue of 'triple talaq' has made the party popular among Muslim women.
Goel said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "far sighted vision for the development of the nation" has appealed to every section of the society, according to a statement issued by the minister's office.

As per the release, Muslim women took part in the BJP rally on Thursday that started from Turkman Gate here.
