Srinagar: Governor Jammu and Kashmir Satya Pal Malik Thursday said that the decision to dissolve the assembly was taken as political parties including Mehbooba Mufti had complained of horse trading.

“I’ve been receiving complaints for past 15 days of horse trading & that MLAs are being threatened. Mehbooba Ji herself complained that her MLAs are being threatened.The other party said there is planning of distribution of money.I couldn’t have allowed this to happen,” Malik to media.

On a question that PDP may move court over the dissolution of assembly he said: ‘Why will they go to court? They were demanding this since five months. I want that they go to court, it’s their right, they should go.’

Malik also commented on the ‘fax machine’ that has become a hot topic as both PDP and PC’s Sajad Lone while claiming the stakes over the government had said that their fax’s are not being received at Gov’s office.

“Fax isn’t an issue. Yesterday was Eid. Both of them are devoted Muslim & should know that offices are closed that day. Even my cook was on leave, let alone the person who handles fax. Even if I had received the fax, my stand would have been the same,” he said.
