‘Statement has cast a shadow on independence, neutrality of governor’s office’

Jammu: National Conference has strongly condemned the recent statement of the Governor of Jammu and Kashmir Satya Pal Malik asking militants to kill “corrupt politicians”.
In a statement, the party said the governor’s remarks were “unconstitutional and cast a shadow on the credibility, independence and neutrality of the high office of the Governor”.
The party leaders told the Governor that he “holds a constitutional position by virtue of which he is the custodian of the Constitution of the state and the country”.
“National Conference has always maintained the respect and dignity for the high office of the Governor unless the person holding it has created an environment which is against the tenants of democracy and democratic norms and principles,” the party leaders said in a joint the statement.
They said that it was “nobody’s case to protect the corrupt and cover up the malpractices committed by anyone”.
“However unsubstantiated, unfounded comments to vilify the reputation of any and every politician, public servant and government employee is unwarranted and coming from the Governor himself is highly condemnable,” they said.
The NC leaders took strong exception to “some intemperate remarks made against the Vice President of the Party, Omar Abdullah by the Governor” saying that Omar Abdullah had enjoyed a “well-regarded political career”.
“He has been Member of Parliament thrice, Union Minister with Prime Minister Vajpayee for three years, Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir for six years and is a leader of premier political party of Jammu and Kashmir. Any attempt to sully his image, his reputation and his stature will be strongly taken on by the party and its cadre,” the NC statement said.
The joint statement was signed by General secretary Ali Mohammad Sagar, Mohammad Akbar Lone, Justice (retd) Husnain Masoodi, Mohammad Shafi Uri, Abdul Rahim Rather, Dr Sheikh Mustafa Kamal, Surjeet Singh Slathia, Ajay Sadhotra, Mian Ataf Ahmed, Chowdhary Muhammad Ramzan, Peerzada Ghulam Ahmed Shah, Mubarak Gul, Aga Syed Ruhullah Mehdi, Devender Singh Rana, Nasir Aslam Wani, and others.
