J&K governor feels he may get transferred

Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) governor Satya Pal Malik has dropped hints that he may face transfer from the restive state. Earlier, Malik had said during his speech a programme in Gwalior that had he looked to the Centre, he would have to install Sajjad Lone’s government in the state. He had said, “Had I looked towards Delhi (Centre), then I would have been forced to invite Sajjad Lone to form the government. Then I would have gone down in history as unscrupulous. But I ended the whole thing. Those who want to abuse me can do so, but I am convinced I did the right thing.” “As long as I’m here, it’s not in my hands, I don’t know when I will be transferred from here. I will not lose my job but chances of a transfer always loom. But I assure you, whenever you call me, I will come here to pay my tributes,” Malik said during his short speech to mark the death anniversary of former minister and Congress veteran Girdhari Lal Dogra.
