Srinagar: Industries minister in the ruling PDP-BJP coalition government in Jammu and Kashmir has triggered a massive row by saying that bullets are the only way to deal with stone pelters in Kashmir.
BJP MLA Chandra Prakash Ganga added all these forces who are “anti-national” could be made to mend their ways by use of bullets.
“They (Protesters) are traitors, whether they have come from Pakistan or they live here,” Ganga is heard saying in a video that has gone viral despite ban on social websites. “There is only one remedy and that is bullets.”
