Former Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik has to plans to write a book on his experiences as the J&K Governor after the Modi Government repealed the contentious Article 370 and bifurcated the state into two Union territories of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh.
In an interview to a local cable channel on Thursday, Malik said that politicians like Farooq Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti were no longer relevant in Kashmir and the situation in the Valley was coming back to normal.
Malik said – “I had said the problem in Kashmir, especially in the 1960s were the mistakes of Kashmiri leaders. Delhi’s mistake was that they would oust the government by fraudulent means. In one election, all forms were cancelled and candidates ‘made’ to win. Terrorism has its roots in such events.
“Also, J&K leaders would always lie and show dreams to the masses that could never be fulfilled,” Malik said. “I will also write a book on Kashmir. I feel and truly believe a lot of thought was put in sending me to Kashmir. My mandate was outreach, development and dispel negative narrative and correct it,” Malik said.
