J&K Governor Satya Pal Malik clarifies his statement on militants

Pushed to the wall on his controversial statement, J&K Governor Satya Pal Malik clarified his statement.

Subsequently, Malik justified his remarks saying that he made the comments ‘in a fit of anger and frustration’ due to the growing corruption by politicians in J&K.

Former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah tweeted angrily in response.

Taking a dig at him, Abdullah stated that Malik, holding a constitutional responsibility, should look at his own reputation in Delhi.

Omar Abdullah also lashed out at the Governor for his remarks.

Taking his fight with Omar further, the Governor called Omar a political juvenile.

This is not the first time Malik has made such controversial comments.

Once, when J&K ex-CM PDP Chief Mehbooba Mufti demanded action against an Army officer who allegedly tortured a youth, Malik had stated that she ‘should not be taken seriously’.
