‘Former Guv Satya Pal Malik’s bribe claim’

Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, Oct 26: J&K Pradesh Youth Congress (PYC) today staged a strong protest against the BJP Government on the statement given by former Governor of J&K Satya Pal Malik regarding the bribe offer of Rs 300 crore to him on behalf of BJP/RSS leader and Ambani, seeking stern action against the ‘corrupt’ leader and his ilk.
The Youth Congress activists under the leadership of Uday Bhanu Chib, president J&K YC assembled at the Press Club of Jammu and raised slogans against the BJP Government at the Centre. They also voiced concern over ambiguous statements made by the Home Minister Amit Shah during his visit to the UT without taking anything concrete action against the corrupt BJP/RSS leader for his attempt to bribe the former Governor of Jammu and Kashmir. During protest several Youth Congress activists were detained by police.
Talking to media persons, Uday Chib said that under the constitution of India both giving and taking bribe amounts to crime and after Satya Pal Malik, who held the prestigious gubernatorial post in the erstwhile state of J&K and is incumbent Governor of Meghalaya, leveled charges against a ‘corrupt’ BJP/RSS leader and Ambani why the so-called corruption-free government of PM Narendra Modi is shirking to take action. He also demanded that SP Malik should disclose the name of the ‘corrupt’ BJP/RSS leader to expose the black sheep in politics.
Youth Congress chief said that the BJP Government is shielding the corrupt party members which again is the height of corruption and should be condemned by one and all. He alleged that under PM Modi’s rule the law is different for common people and the BJP leaders because otherwise there is no reason that the aforesaid corrupt RSS leader is roaming scot-free.
Chib said situation in Kashmir has gone worse from bad as knowledgeable people have started comparing it with that of the 1990s when people were forced to leave the Valley under threat of life. He said that Shah failed to win hearts of the people as instead of giving statehood back his visit was merely a time pass gimmick to divert the attention of people form current spell of death and destruction.
Others who joined protest included Ricky Dalotra, Sahil Singh Langeh, Latish Sharma, Divyansh Jamwal, Manpreet Singh, Happy Randhawa and others.
