BJP MP Paresh Rawal suggested that the Indian Army should tie Indian author Arundhati Roy to an army jeep instead of stone-pelters, Rawal on Thursday justified his action and called the controversy “baseless” as his tweet was a message of “peace”.
“This is a baseless argument. Arundhati is a well-wisher of the stone pelters. They are her followers. If she (Arundhati) sits on the jeep, there will be no pelting of stones. Arundhati will also understand, and get a first-hand experience of the conditions that the Army has to face,” Rawal told CNN-News18 on Thursday.
