Satyapal Malik, a former governor of Jammu and Kashmir, continued to criticize the government over the Pulwama attack, claiming that the 2019 Lok Sabha elections were “battled on the bodies of our soldiers” and that the then-home minister would have to resign if the matter had been looked into.
Just after the attack, he alleged, he alerted Prime Minister Narendra Modi about it, but “he told me to keep quiet.”
“Lok Sabha elections in 2019 were held on our warriors’ bodies, but no investigation was conducted. Rajnath Singh, the previous home minister, would have had to quit if an investigation had been conducted.” Malik stated this during a gathering in Bansur, Alwar region. He also added that “many officials had been caught, they would all have been arrested, and there would have been a big uproar.”
Satyapal Malik has been outspoken on matters pertaining to Jammu and Kashmir, where he served as governor before the state’s division into Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh as separate Union Territories.
During the event on Sunday, he claimed that on “February 14, 2019, the day of the Pulwama incident, the prime minister was involved in a shooting at Jim Corbett National Park. Malik added that “I had informed the Prime Minister about the death of some Indian Soldiers which was our fault, and he asked me to keep quiet.”
The CBI recently questioned Malik over his assertion that, while serving as governor of Jammu and Kashmir from August 23, 2018, to October 30, 2019, he was offered a sum of Rs 300 crore as a bribe in order to open papers pertaining to an insurance plan.
In accordance with the Adani scandal, he criticized Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Malik asked those in attendance if they had been able to enhance their fortune after stating that Adani had made a significant amount of money in just three years.
Satyapal Malik then proceeded to the recent encounter between Rahul Gandhi and PM Modi, he stated that “Gandhi had told the Parliament about Adani gaining Rs 20,000 crore and raised a question to the government that where did it come from. The prime minister was unable to respond. He spoke for two days, but he was unable to respond to any questions because he was stumped,” and Malik asserted that “all of the money was his. They steal from their chief ministers and transfer the money to Adani, who then uses it to conduct business and is certain it is my money,” claimed Malik.
