New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party Member of Parliament Subramanian Swamy today advised that the troubled Kashmir Valley should be de-populated and the people of Kashmir should be sent to the refugee camps in Tamil Nadu to curb protests in the state.

“Solution to (the) Kashmir Valley revolt is to depopulate as was done to Kashmir Valley Hindus. For a few years keep them in refugee camps in TN (Tamil Nadu),” Swamy tweeted, a day after university and college students across the valley clashed with security forces.

The valley has been on a boil and the government has ordered the temporary closure of all schools and colleges.

The fresh protests followed a sequence of recent poll-related violence in the state where eight people were killed in firing by security forces when people tried to storm polling stations in Budgam district.
