Former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir Omar Abdullah on Saturday accused the erstwhile state’s former governor Satya Pal Malik of “lying” and “shooting his mouth off” with claims that the National Conference and the People’s Democratic Party boycotted the 2018 panchayat elections under Pakistan’s pressure.

“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. Terrorists also threatened yet the election was held successfully,” Malik, who is now the Governor of Goa, told ANI.

Omar Abdullah who was released from detention in March after seven months, was quick to rebut Malik on Twitter.

“Only naam ka satya not kaam ka. He never tires of lying. Lied to people of J&K before 5th August & 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 & see,” he tweeted.
