Jammu and Kashmir governor Satya Pal Malik says Omar Abdullah is being juvenile, his statements were made in a ‘fit of anger’

Satya Pal Malik had said, "These youth with guns, they are killing PSOs and SPOs, why are you killing them? You should kill those who have looted Kashmir, have you killed anyone from them?

Today, J&K Governor Satya Pal Malik issued a clarification over the statements he had made during a speech. On Sunday he had said the terrorists should kill the ‘corrupt politicians’ instead of killing the security forces. However, Malik has now clarified that he made those statements in a fit of anger. He said that he was frustrated with the rampant corruption in Jammu and Kashmir.

He also said, “As Governor, I should have not made such a comment, but my personal feeling is the same as I said. Many political leaders & big bureaucrats are steeped in corruption in Jammu and Kashmir”.

The Governer had sparked a row yesterday after he had stated that terrorists should kill corrupt politicians and bureaucrats who have robbed their state instead of killing Policemen and SPOs. The Governor had said this while addressing the locals at Kargil.

He had said, “These youth with guns, they are killing PSOs and SPOs, why are you killing them? You should kill those who have looted Kashmir, have you killed anyone from them? They lose their lives for nothing. In India, nobody can bend the government with guns.”

Responding to his statements, National Conference leader Omar Abdullah said that if any politician or bureaucrat is killed in the state, then it must be considered as the execution of Governor’s order.

Satya Palik Malik while responding to Abdullah called him a “political juvenile”.

Just a few days ago, a Personal Security Officer (PSO) of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leader Sajad Mufti was shot dead in Bijbehara area of South Kashmir in Anantnag district. About a week ago 3 CRPF jawans were martyred and several others were injured when a patrol team of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) came under terrorist attack in Anantnag in Jammu and Kashmir.
