SRINAGAR, Oct 9: J&K Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) vice president and MLC Ghulam Nabi Monga, while expressing surprise over Governor’s statement hinting at foreign educated Mayor for SMC, said that ongoing ULB elections lost the credibility as seemingly BJP-RSS had already decided as to who would be the Mayor.
Reacting to the assertions of Governor S P Malik, Monga also hit out at him (Governor) for failing to uphold the constitutional authority of the Raj Bhavan. Monga said, “Governor being the constitutional head of the State should not play in the hands of BJP- RSS.”
In statement, Monga said it was surprising to see that such irresponsible statement had come from none other than the Governor of the state. He sought clarity from Malik over his assertions. He said Malik’s statement was going to cause severe damages to electoral exercise currently underway in the state.
He said, “Congress party believes that the BJP RSS has decided as to who would be the Mayor of Srinagar SMC and the Governor has been assigned the task to complete the process before the outcome of the ULB elections, which is something that needs to be ascertained, for the fact, the people in the state will again loose the faith in the democratic process.”
“BJP-RSS is trying to make Raj Bhavan as a tool to decide the fate of democratic institutions, but the Congress party will defeat their designs,” Monga added. He said, “Governor must clarify his position, as that, his assertions are detrimental to electoral exercise in the state.”
