Srinagar: As the Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik’s fax machine at the office has been constantly in news since Malik dissolved the assembly on 21 November, former chief minister Omar Abdullah on Sunday said that the fax machine is still not working.
Abdullah was sending a letter to the Governor regarding the plans to make changes in the permanent resident certificate rules of Jammu and Kashmir. “It is an attempt to distort the demography of the state,” he said in the letter.
Taking to Twitter, Abdullah posted the letter, adding, “I’m trying to fax a letter to
@jandkgovernor but the fax machine still isn’t working.”
“The operator who answered the phone says the fax operator is on holiday as it’s a Sunday. Will attempt again tomorrow in the mean time am forced to put the letter out through social media,” added Abdullah.
