Senior Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge on Monday asked whether Malik’s statements are true after Meghalaya Governor Satya Pal Malik called Prime Minister Narendra Modi “arrogant”. Kharge also shared a video clip of Malik on Twitter, in which he is addressing a function in Haryana’s Charkhi Dadri. In the video, Malik can be heard saying that he (Modi) was “arrogant” when he went to meet the Prime Minister on the issue of farmers and they had a fight within five minutes.
Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Kharge said, “The Governor of Meghalaya, Shri Satya Pal Malik can be heard on record saying that the Prime Minister was ‘arrogant’ on the issue of farmers and Home Minister Amit Shah called the Prime Minister ‘Pagal’ (Mad). People holding constitutional posts are speaking with such contempt for each other.
Kharge said, ‘Narendra Modi ji, is this true?’
Malik can also be heard saying in the video that when he met Shah, he said, “People have spoiled his (Modi’s) wisdom.”
The Congress also shared Malik’s statements on its Twitter handle and alleged that so many farmers were killed because of Modi’s arrogance.
