Jammu and Kashmir: BJP leader Lal Singh Chaudhary warns journalists

Lal Singh Chaudhary said, "Journalists of Kashmir created a wrong environment there. You should draw a line in journalism, so that brotherhood is maintained and there is progress".

"Kashmiri journalists have created an erroneous atmosphere and I would like to ask them to draw a line...You want to live like what happened to Basharat (Shujaat Bukhari)...Take care of yourselves and draw a line so that the brotherhood is not broken and it is maintained so that progress and development is ensured," Singh told reporters in Jammu on Friday.

National Conference condemned Singh's statement. The party said the remarks merited "immediate cognisance" by the state police.
