J&K guv's remarks on Srinagar mayoral elections being presented in distorted manner: Raj Bhavan

SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik's remarks favouring a selected individual for the post of mayor of Srinagar have been being introduced in a distorted means as the native our bodies elections in the state are being carried out in an even and clear way, a Raj Bhavan spokesperson mentioned on Thursday.

He used to be regarding Malik's interview to an English news channel through which he had hinted that a "foreign-educated person" used to be going to grow to be the mayor of the Srinagar Municipal Corporation (SMC).

The spokesperson mentioned the governor's administration made it clear in unequivocal phrases that the continued process for the urban and rural native our bodies polls in the state are being carried out in a free, honest and probably the most clear means and the result can be solely in the hands of the people.

"Over the past three days, ever since the governor gave a live interview to a TV channel in Delhi, there has been a persistent attempt by that channel and certain other channels to play up one part of the interview in a distorted manner leading to a flurry of allegations that the governor has already decided that a certain candidate will be the mayor of Srinagar," the spokesperson mentioned.

He mentioned the governor had simply mentioned that he has information about the possibility of a undeniable candidate changing into mayor and how if it occurs, it'll disappointed some political events.


"This possibility too has been a topic in media for quite some time. In a discussion on the boycott of the polls by two local parties and the impact of the polls on them, this is a simple statement on a possible outcome which may be inconvenient to them if it happens," he mentioned.


The spokesperson mentioned that in no way can the commentary of the governor be construed to imply that he has either determined the mayor of Srinagar or is concerned in the electoral process.


"The electoral process is in the hands of an unbiased leader electoral officer who is answerable for engaging in a free and honest ballot. That is what he is doing, at the side of officers concerned in the electoral process. The mayor of Srinagar is to be elected via the councilors of the Municipal Corporation of Srinagar and that isn't a pre-determined result.


"The governor has no role in the election either of councilors, and even much less so, in the election of the mayor," the spokesperson mentioned.
