A round of rhetoric has started between Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and state Governor Satyapal Malik regarding the condition of Jammu and Kashmir. Rahul Gandhi has retaliated at the invitation of Satyapal Malik. Rahul Gandhi said that I will go to Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh with a delegation of leaders on your humble invitation. We do not need an aircraft for this. Just give us the freedom to meet the people living there, the leaders and the soldiers there.
Rahul Gandhi said, "Dear Governor Malik, on your humble invitation, I will go for a delegation of opposition leaders to visit Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh. We do not need an aircraft for that, but please give us the freedom to meet and hang out with the people, leaders and our soldiers living there. ''
Earlier, about Rahul Gandhi's remarks about the news of violence in Kashmir, Satyapal Malik said that he will send a plane to the former Congress president to visit the valley and take stock of the ground situation.
The governor said that Rahul Gandhi should feel ashamed about the behavior of a leader of his party who was talking like a 'fool' in Parliament.
What did Governor Malik say
Malik said, "I have invited Rahul Gandhi to come here. I will send the plane for you so that you can review the situation and then speak. You are a responsible person and you should not talk like this. ”The governor was answering questions asked about the statements of some leaders related to violence in Kashmir.
On Saturday night, Rahul Gandhi had said that there have been some reports of violence from Jammu and Kashmir and Prime Minister Narendra Modi should express concern over the matter in a transparent manner. The Governor said that there is no communal approach in removing the provisions of Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir.
He said, "Most of the provisions of Article 35A and Article 370 have been abolished for everyone. Neither Leh, Kargil, Jammu, Rajouri and Poonch nor here (Kashmir) have any communal approach in ending it. There is no communal angle to it. ”Malik said that a handful of people are giving vent to this issue but they will not succeed in it.
Foreign media received warning
He said, "Foreign media tried something (misreporting) and we have warned them. All hospitals are open for you and if one person is also shot, then you prove it. When some youths were committing violence, only four people were shot in the leg from the palette and no one was seriously injured in it.
When asked about the allegations of converting Kashmir into a 'concentration camp', the governor said that despite being educated, people do not know the meaning of torture camp.
He asked, "I know what it is." I have been in jail 30 times. Even then I did not give it a torture camp. He (Congress) had jailed people for one and a half years during the Emergency, but no one called him a torture camp. Is the precautionary arrest equivalent to torture camp? ''
