Whatever I said was in ‘fit of anger’, as Guv I should have avoided it: Satya Pal Malik


Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik on Monday said that as a Governor he should have avoided the comment where he said that ‘terrorists should gun down those who have looted the country and their state’ and added that whatever he said was in a ‘fit of anger’.

“Whatever I said was in a fit of anger and frustration due to rampant corruption. As a Governor, I should not have said this. But if I was not holding this post, I would have said the same and would have been ready to bear the consequences,” Malik told ANI.

“Many of the political leaders and top bureaucrats are steeped in corruption here, they are criminals. As a Governor I should have avoided making such a comment, but as an individual this is what I feel,” he added.

Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and National Conference leader Omar Abdullah, had taken a direct dig at Satya Pal Malik as he tweeted “Perhaps the man should find out about his own reputation in Delhi these days before sanctioning unlawful killings & kangaroo courts.”

He further added “Save this tweet – after today any mainstream politician or serving/retired bureaucrat killed in J&K has been murdered on the express orders of the Governor of J&K Satyapal Malik.”

Hitting back at Abdullah, the J&K Givernor called him a ‘political juvenile’ after being criticised over his statement on Sunday.

“He is a political juvenile who tweets on everything. See the reaction to his tweets and you will find out, go on the streets and ask about him,” Malik said.

“Yahan dekho meri reputation, public se pucho, meri bhi pucho aur inki bhi pucho. Main Dilli mein apni reputation ki wajah se yahan hun aur aap apni reputation ki wajah se wahan ho jahan ho.”, he told ANI.

“Na mere pass dada-baap ka naam hai, na rupaiya hai tumhari tarah. Dedh kamre ke makaan se yahan aya hun. Main aapko guarantee karta hun ki inka jo bhrashtachaar hai usko sabko dikha kar jaaunga”, he added.

Addressing a gathering at the inaugural event of Kargil Ladakh Tourism Festival 2019 at Khree Sultan Choo Sports Stadium Kargil on Sunday, Malik opined that the biggest disease in Jammu and Kashmir is corruption.

“The biggest disease in Kashmir is corruption…These youth with guns, they are killing PSOs and SPOs for no reason, why are you killing them? Kill those who have looted your country and all the wealth from Kashmir, have you killed anyone out of them? Nothing will be achieved by this,” Governor had said.
