Stone-pelters in Kashmir should be hit with bullets: BJP MP
BJP Upper House parliamentarian DP Vats said that stone-pelters in Kashmir Valley should be hit with bullets. "Pakistan has not learned a lesson despite tasting defeat many times in direct wars with India and is now engaged in proxy war. Each day our forces are being attacked," the retired Lieutenant General said, adding every day their bodies are sent to their native places.
Will stand with my words, Vats emphasized
Vats even said that he will stand by his comments. "I am an Army officer, the Army has been fighting a proxy war waged by Pakistan for a long time. As an Army officer, I stand by what I have said," he added. "We cannot let down their morale. They cannot be attacked and pelted with stones," he said.
