Disappointed with Delhi for demonizing Kashmir at every level: Governor Malik
Terming negativity and biased approach for Jammu and Kashmir a major problem, Governor Satya Pal Malik on Friday rued that the state is being demonised at the national level.
“It’s very unfortunate that Kashmir is being demonized in Delhi. A death in Kashmir becomes national headline but I come from a village where local mortuary sends five to ten dead bodies daily and it doesn’t even find any mention in the city’s news papers,” the governor said.
He was speaking at a function organized by State Health Society, National Health Mission, J&K for felicitation of people involved in Measles Rubella Vaccination Campaign.
“We recruited more than 1000 doctors in 40 days, nine phased panchyat elections and four phased municipal elections were successfully held without any causality and the vote parentage was almost similar to elections held in Punjab but this positivity rarely appears in news,” he said.
He said that Kashmir was being deliberately demonized and that no one talks about positive things happening in the state.
Terming that youth of state as key holder for solution of Kashmir issue, the governor said, “Young generation of state is very positive, talented and performing well in every field. Kashmir’s football team secured second spot in recent concluded tournament and when Kashmir’s team played with Mohun Bagan club in Srinagar, more than 27,000 boys witnessed the match and cheered for both the teams,” he said.
