Haryana, February 20: Defence Minister Rajnath Singh while addressing an audience on Thursday said, "Terrorists are not uneducated, they are graduates and technical degree holders. They too are young and have the zeal to do something in life. But due to differences in values, they kill people." He was in Kurukshetra to attend the 17th convocation of National Institute of Technology (NIT). Singh was invited as the chief guest to attend the function where more than 1,339 students were awarded degrees.
