BJP leader said – will not be spared

On the other hand, the reaction of BJP leaders has also come to the fore when the matter catches up. BJP MLA Nitesh Rane warned that those allegedly raising pro-Pakistan slogans in Pune should remember that they will not be spared. He also demanded a ban on the Popular Front of India (PFI).
