There has been a lot of debate taking place between Satyapal Malik and Rahul Gandhi. On Sunday, Congress leader said that he came across some media reports of violence in the valley. "People were dying in the state and the situation was not normal as claimed by the government," he said.
Reacting to it, Malik had said that Gandhi should be ashamed. The governor also invited Gandhi to the valley and see the ground reality. He further said that Rahul Gandhi is politicising the matter by seeking to bring a delegation of opposition leaders to create further unrest and problems for the common people.
