Business amalgams slam Ganga’s ‘bullet’ statement


Srinagar, Apr 20: Business bodies on Thursday condemned the statement of BJP minister and Industries and Commerce minister Chander Prakash Ganga justifying the use of bullets on protesters in Kashmir.
“The use of words “latoon kay boot baton say nahi mantey” were viewed as serious, based on insanity and adding fuel to fire,” said a joint statement issued by the heads of the Kashmir Chamber of Commerce & industry (Inc), Kashmir Traders & Manufacturers Federation (KTMF) and Federation Chamber of Industries Kashmir (FCIK).
“The trade bodies vehemently condemn the irresponsible statement made with a warning to the BJP leadership to restrain their leaders and cadres from threatening Kashmiris.”
