Srinagar, Feb 6, CNS: Former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir Mehbooba Mufti Wednesday responded to governor Satya Pal Malik’s comments, on the Army man saying she was saddened to see the constitutional authorities taking sides so brazenly.
The PDP president while taking to her Twitter handle said that instead of taking cognizance of the brutality the young boy has faced and ordering action against the culprits, governor is playing politics.“Instead of taking cognizance of the brutality that the young boy has been subjected to, and ordering action against the culprits , it is sad that the honourable governor is talking politics instead. Saddened to see the constitutional authorities taking sides so brazenly.”
Earlier Governor Malik lashed out at PDP president Mehbooba Mufti who had criticized an army man for torturing a youth in south Kashmir’s Pulwama.
Meanwhile, former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir Omar Abdullah hit out at governor Satya Pal Malik for his remarks on Mehbooba Mufti.
The National Conference leader termed Malik’s statement as unacceptable,“Governor Sb this is an unacceptable statement & an unnecessary interference in politics. At this rate it won’t be long before people stop taking Raj Bhavan seriously so please consider the office you occupy before you give statements.” He tweeted.
