‘Only naam ka satya not kaam ka’, Omar on Goa Governor

SRINAGAR: Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister and Vice President of the National Conference (NC), Omar Abdullah took strong exception on Saturday to a comment made by former state governor Satya Pal Malik in which Malik accused the NC and the PDP of succumbing to Pakistan’s pressure.

Omar lashed out at Malik calling him an ‘outright liar’.

In a recent comment, Malik said he had personally approached Omar and Mehbooba to persuade them to participate in the Panchayat elections, but they had refused to do so because of pressure from Pakistan.

“PM had said that we will conduct Panchayat elections (in J&K). I broke protocol and went to Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti’s residence. They refused to participate under Pakistan’s pressure. Militants also threatened yet election was held successfully,”, Malik said in a statement on Friday.

Reacting to this, Omar said on his widely followed Twitter handle, “Only naam ka satya not kaam ka. He never tires of lying. Lied to people of J&K before 5th August and lying now. Hiding behind walls of Raj Bhavan protected from defamation suits so feels emboldened to shoot his mouth off. Let him say all this when he is no longer governor and see”.
