Modi’s sinister design in J&K exposed: Cong

New Delhi: In the wake of Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Maliks assertions of not “looking to Delhi” on government formation in the state, the Congress on Tuesday targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his “sinister design” to install an illegitimate government in the state.
The Congress also accused the Governor of inflicting long-term damage to India’s interest in Jammu and Kashmir.
In his bid to defend the abrupt dissolution of the state Assembly, Malik had said that “had he looked to Delhi, he would have had to install a government led by Peoples Conference leader Sajjad Lone, and history would have remembered him as a dishonest man.
The remarks, that could possibly embarrass the Centre’s ruling BJP, were made by Malik on Saturday at an event in Gwalior.
“J&K Governor has exposed Modi government’s sinister design of installing an illegitimate government by horse trading and coercion. From Goa to Arunachal Pradesh, J&K to Tamil Nadu, this has been Modi’s (modus) operandi. PM must answer for the rank political dishonesty,” said Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala reacting to Malik’s claims.
