JK Governor playing partisan role: NC
‘Amending Waqaf board rules shows governors antipathy for ethics’
Srinagar, October 10: Jammu and Kashmir National Conference on Wednesday said that JK Governor SP Malik is playing a partisan role in the state and is implementing the agenda of RSS-BJP combine in letter and spirit by sidelining the significance of institutions and governing ethics.
Expressing concern over his current utterances, party’s chief spokesperson and MLA Budgam Aga Syed Ruhullah Mehdi said that tenure of incumbent governor of Jammu and Kashmir is evocative of Sadiq Era during which the candidates were selected rather than being elected.
“The incumbent governor is belittling the status of his office by my way or the highway type of arrogant politics. In his recent rendezvous on a private TV channel, he had unambiguously hinted towards a particular person for the post of mayor of Srinagar,” he said.
He said that the whole process of elections is a smokescreen and it seems that the selection has already been done by the governor’s office.
Criticizing the fiddling of the governor administration with local institutions he said, “The way amendments are being done and local institutions fiddled with is a point of concern for all of us. The other day Waqaf board rules were amended by the governor administration which should have been left for the popular government to decide upon. It shows the antipathy of the governor for ethics.”
He asked the governor to see the writing on the wall and start a conciliatory process in the state rather than putting out politically loaded statements.
