      Yes, at last, the politicians have realised that the pellet guns are the only answer for these anti-nationals, and seperatists supporters. Thank you politicians and security men. Keep up the same use of pellet guns in every day-to-day fights and see, very quickly the situation will return to normalcy. Allow unlimited use of these pellet guns to our jawans who are sacrificying their lives.
