- Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik on Thursday said the “wheel of history doesn’t turn back”, hinting at the impossibility of the rollback of the revocation of the special status. He said Delhi would give “whatever you ask for” and there is no need for the people to worry.
- “I want to tell the common people that the wheel of history doesn’t turn back,” Malik said while inaugurating the Market Intervention Scheme for the fruit growers of the Valley. “Right now, there is so much sympathy for you in Delhi that you will get whatever you ask for. The entire country is yours and you will get every thing. There is no need for you to worry.”
- Governor Malik said that 75 per cent of the apples produced in India come from Kashmir and the apple industry of the Valley produces 30 lakh metric tonnes of the fruit, worth Rs 8,000 crore.
- Warning militants against bothering the fruit growers, he said, “I want to warn those who are threatening our farmer brothers. They should immediately change their behaviour,” he said. “Otherwise, we will ensure proper security to our farmers and buyers. Those who intimidate them, we will punish them.”
