Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik, who dissolved the state assembly on November 21 after two state leaders, Jammu and Kashmir People’s Conference leader Sajad Lone and former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti staked claim to form the government in the state.
Recently during a speech in Gwalior, Governor said that the “Delhi wanted him to install Sajad Lone as the state’s chief minister”.
If he had listened to Delhi, “I would have become dishonest forever”, Governor added.
Satya Pal Malik further said that “Both leaders, Sajad Lone and Mehbooba Mufti had no list of MLAs and I didn’t know that, the government can be formed on Whatsapp and Twitter”.
Earlier, while speaking to a news channel, Malik said there was no political pressure or interference from the Centre, and that he was completely apolitical during the whole process.
