SRINAGAR, May 10: Congress today strongly criticised the statement of Governor Satya Pal Malik in which he mentioned about the involvement of former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi in the Bofors scandal.
In a statement, JKPCC president G A Mir alleged that Malik is misusing his position as state governor to please his boss by joining the vilification campaign against Rajiv Gandhi who “laid down his life for the nation”.
"Malik has joined the vilification campaign of the BJP and prime minister Narendra Modi least caring for his position as Governor, which prohibits him from indulging in this kind of malicious campaign against the former prime minister who is no more in this world and has laid down his life for the nation," Mir said.
He added that Malik is also aware of fact that nothing could be established against Rajiv Gandhi in the long drawn legal battle spreading over more than three decades despite all out efforts by his political opponents to drag his name without anything proved against him (Rajiv Gandhi).
He said as constitutional head of the state Malik cannot comment at his own convenience and whims in a highly irresponsible and objectional manner while holding the position of the Governor. "He has lowered the dignity of his office. It is not his domain so long as he holds this august position," Mir said.
JKPCC chief said Modi brought the political narrative in the country to a lowest level out of utter frustration as he has nothing to market performance of his government in all vital parameters and utter failure of his government on all fronts.
