Blocking Corruption


Known for his outspoken views, Governor Satya Pal Malik today once again targeted bureaucrats and political leaders of Jammu and Kashmir even as he disclosed that he had unearthed Rs 300 crore worth two frauds in allotment of tenders in the State and his step was appreciated by everyone. Taking on politicians though without naming any of them, the Governor said he has also learnt from them how to criticize and describe as “wrong” a decision taken by others, having taken similar decision during their tenure. Malik seems to be referring to Republic Day order of the administration asking Government officers/officials to attend January 26 celebrations, which was criticized by some of the political parties and other organizations.
The Governor had later disclosed that similar order was being issued every year since 2009 to 2018. It may be mentioned here that National Conference vice president Omar Abdullah and PDP president Mehbooba Mufti were also Chief Ministers during that period.
Earlier also, Malik targeted the politicians and bureaucrats of Jammu and Kashmir saying that they are becoming richer day by day and are left with no sensitivity so as to spend on charity. There is no threat to the Indian democracy. These are the insecure people, whether political or religious, who create such uproar, when they themselves are in danger.
Indian democracy has very strong roots. Referring to the culture of corruption, Malik said the day you take oath, relatives will come to you and tell to do something for yourself as everyone is doing this. Malik highlighted that his administration was in the process of formulating a fresh package for the rehabilitation of terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir.
