New Governor of Jammu and Kashmir Satya Pal Malik has made it clear that he has got no political agenda and Kashmir issue is not his domain, and his focus is on the governance.
Since the day Governor’s rule has been imposed in the state things have started moving in the Valley. Governor Malik has to carry forward the good work which was started by his predecessor Governor N N Vohra. It’s evident that officials have been made accountable and all the departments have started functioning properly. There is no political interference and the reshuffles in the administration carried out during the past two months have put the officials on toes.
The Governor Malik has made it clear that his mandate is governance only. The political parties which have ruled Jammu and Kashmir in the past have always mixed up governance with the Kashmir issue. Kashmir based politicians after coming into the power have made people believe that they can resolve the Kashmir issue, and they can do anything. Politicians unfortunately don’t draw a line and go to any extent to keep their vote bank intact. Had politicians worked towards addressing the issues of a common man Kashmir would not have been in a mess today.
People who run the state cannot interfere in the issues which don’t fall in their domain. They need to bear this in mind that they have to concentrate on their job whenever they come into the power. Politicians should realize that they cannot hoodwink the people by just indulging in mere rhetoric and rendering lip service. They should acknowledge that they cannot resolve the Kashmir issue.
