New Delhi, June 2 (UNI) BJP leader Subramanian Swamy on Thursday launched a scathing attack at the Narendra Modi-led government at the Centre over recent spree in targeted killing of Kashmiri Hindus in Jammu and Kashmir.

He also demanded resignation of Union Home Minister Amit Shah.

“Since there is President’s Rule in J&K , and yet daily a Kashmiri Hindu is being shot dead, it has become necessary to ask for Amit Shah’s resignation. He can be instead given Sports Ministry since nowadays cricket is receiving undue interest,” Swamy tweeted.

In yet another targeted attack in broad daylight, a bank manager from Rajasthan was shot dead in Kulgam district of Jammu and Kashmir on Thursday morning, triggering widespread condemnation.

The attack took place two days after a 36-year-old teacher from Samba, Rajni Bala, was killed in the same district.

The spree of targeted killing has sparked fresh fears among Kashmiri Pandit employees, recruited under the Prime Minister’s special rehabilitation package, and Hindu employees from Jammu and other states posted in the Kashmir Valley.
