Governor Satya Pal Malik accused the State’s political leaders of wanting to get “youths killed” to “blackmail” Delhi and keep it “under pressure”.
The Governor also said Prime Minister Narendra Modi is ready to give everything that the people of Kashmir demand under the Constitution as he has love and respect for the people of the State while addressing a Kissan Mela here in Akhnoor.

“This misconception was cleared by me during the municipal and Panchayat polls, and conveyed a message that New Delhi is not to come under pressure. New Delhi will not come under pressure of blackmail now. If bullets will be fired, no bouquets will be send from here,” he said.
Malik said by killing terrorists in Kashmir no solution can be found and advised to return to their mainstream.

Malik said “political parties have double standards. I am angry with them”.

“I went to the houses of both after breaking my protocol. I went to the house of Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah. I asked them to take part in elections which will benefit and empower people. But they opposed it. They want their own empowerment not that of the people,” Malik said.
Taking a dig at Mufti, he said even before confirmation of killing of a terrorist, one leader of a party goes to his home to condole the death. “How can this work?” Governor asked.

“Please stop with the insults & snide remarks Mr Governor. They do not behove a person in your position. It is only my respect for the office you occupy that stops me from repeating what all you told me when we met. @jandkgovernor. Please stop playing politics & focus on your work,” Omar tweeted.

The PDP tweeted, “Not allowing a democratic government to function & talking of Panchayat as empowerment of democracy without participation of people & parties! Dissolving assembly unethically is personal empowerment not boycott.”

About the prospects of the State elections, the Governor said it is up to the Election Commission to decide on conducting the polls in the State.
“Whenever the polls will be announced by the Election Commission, we will hold free and fair polls in the State,” Malik said.
The Governor also hit out at separatist and mainstream leadership of Kashmir that all the leaders here and the Hurriyat conference know, nothing will come out of it (gun culture).

Malik said there are politicians who say something in Delhi and something else in Kashmir. In valley they show them green handkerchief, they sell to the people of J&K dreams of Azadi. He said, J&K will remain here only if you want Azadi go to that (Pak) side . They also sell dream of autonomy or say Pak will break India.

Malik said, corruption is another biggest problem in J&K . It takes four months to move a file. “I give jobs under SRO .An order is given by me and Chief secretary but it’s doesn’t reach beneficiaries until they pay Rs 1 lakh .In Secretariat people are sitting for the past 15 years and they have eaten up this state with corruption”, he added.

“Our Army is fighting with terrorists on the other side in the midnight in thick snow and people from villages are being collected on the calls from loudspeaker from mosque to engineer stone pelting and snatch bodies, surround vehicles, weapons. Then if anybody gets killed and then (they) resort to shutdown the Valley and call it atrocities,” he said, while hitting at Hurriyat.

Questioning their behaviour on instigating people, the Governor said, “Where does it happen in the world that you target the Army and they will leave you? We will sternly suppress it.”

“…If anything has to happen, it is dialogue. Come and hold talks under the Constitution of India. You have separate flag and a separate Constitution here. But still raking up the issue,” he said.
Counselling Hurriyat, the Governor said the Indian Army is the world’s fourth biggest Army. “After fight with it, (General Parvez) Musharraf has himself conveyed to the Hurriyat people that they should…hold talks with India under the Constitution of India,” he said.

“I here again reiterate 300 boys (terrorists) cannot break India. They are nothing,” Malik said, adding that “our army and forces are instrumental in eliminating two to three terrorists after every one to two days. Good thing is that people have understood that gun cannot bring us anything”.
Earlier, Governor inaugurated ‘Kisan Mela’ organised at Jourian to commemorate sacrifices of those farmers who laid down their lives during the 1953 Praja Parishad movement.

Governor stressed on the need for the farming community to become aware of their rights and strengthen themselves so as not to get exploited by the market forces which are causing farmers to suffer losses.

Governor announced sanctioning of a Government Degree College for Jourian and assured appropriate consideration to various demands submitted by the farmers.

Governor said that his Administration is committed for empowerment of people at grass root level and conduct of long pending elections to the Panchayats and Urban Local Bodies was a step in this direction.
