Mathura: Terming Pakistan a “nasur” (ulcer), Uttar Pradesh minister Srikant Sharma said India should rain bullets if its soldiers are fired upon by troops of the neighbouring country
The minister said this on Wednesday during a conclave here organised by an all-India traders’ body.
“Pakistan is a ‘nasur’ (ulcer). Soldiers have been instructed to maintain restraint. However, if firing starts from the other side, there should be a rain of firing till the enemy is forced to take shelter in bunkers,” he said.
The minister also condemned the recent incidents of violence during “Bharat Bandh”.
The pan-India shutdown was called by Dalit outfits against the alleged dilution in the provisions of the SC and ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act by the Supreme Court.
The Power minister assured that electricity supply infrastructure in Mathura was being improved so that pilgrims coming here do not face problems.
Claiming that there was uniform supply of power in the state, he said, “Gone are the days when the privilege of round the clock power supply was limited to four or five districts.PTI
