Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy has asked Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman to give her clarification on the statements reportedly made by Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on FIR filed against Army over killings of Civilians in Shopian on Saturday. According to media reports, Mehbooba Mufti at the floor of the house reportedly said: I had brought the Shopian army firing issue to the notice of the Defence Minister and she said that if you feel that a crime has been committed, go ahead and take an action. Subramanian Swamy warned that he would raise the issue on the floor of the house if Defence Minister refuses to give clarification. “Wondering why even today Def minister has not given a clarification. Do we take her silence to mean yes? If it is, then it’s totally against party policies, sentiments of Indians and patriotism. If she doesn’t give a clarification by 2 Feb I’ll ask it in the House,” ANI reported Subramanian Swamy as saying.
