'Governor Raj in J&K is ours'

ANANTNAG, Dec 5: Bhartiya Janata Party leader and Member of Legislative Council (MLC), Sofi Yusuf on Wednesday stoked a controversy saying 'Governor Rule in the state is BJP’s Rule'.
He was speaking at a worker’s meet at his residence in Housing Colony Khanabal in southern Anantnag district.
"See, we have a government at the Center today. There is Governor Raj in the state and it is also ours. Tomorrow we will again come into power," Sofi told workers most of whom were from the Gujjar community.
Sofi further said that BJP wants to uplift the Gujjar community ignored by the previous governments.
"Earlier, the graveyards used to be without fencing but we fenced so many graveyards. We constructed houses for many Gujjars and provided money to scores of ailing people from community for their treatment. We want the prosperity of Gujjar people also," Sofi to the meeting.
Hailing from Srigufwara village of Anantnag, Sofi before being given the MLC berth by the BJP had contested many elections but faced stunning defeat every time.
Soon after the meeting concluded, the video in which the BJP leader describes the Governor’s rule in the state as 'ours' was widely shared on social networking sites by the social media users.
Zewar Hussain Bhat while commenting on the video shared by another facebook user wrote 'It is true. He finally revealed the truth,".
"Baap ka Raaj' wrote another facebook user Sajad Hakeem in his comment on the video.
