Good to see Guv didn’t take dictation from Delhi, this could be unprecedented, says Mehbooba

Srinagar: PDP President Mehbooba Mufti has said that Governor Malik’s decision not to look up Delhi and dissolve the Assembly in JK is ‘unprecedented’, given the ‘history of democracy in the state.’

In a tweet Mehbooba said:

Malik, in an event that had taken place on November 24, in Gwalior, said that the Modi-led ruling government had wanted him to install Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Conference chief Sajad Lone as the region’s chief minister before the dissolution of the assembly last week.

If he had listened to “Delhi”, he would have become “dishonest forever”.

In an interview with India Today TV, Governor Malik said that there was no political pressure or interference from the government of India, and that he was “completely apolitical”.

Earlier, National Conference Vice President Omar Abdullah, in a tweet ‘complimented’ the Governor for not allowing BJP and its proxies to form the Government in Jammu and Kashmir.

However, in another tweet, the Former Chief Minister had said he had never seen a politically appointed Governor going against the wishes of the GoI.
