SHILLONG: Meghalaya Governor Satya Pal Malik claimed that he was offered Rs 300-crore bribe for clearing two files belonging to Ambani during his tenure in Jammu and Kashmir, which he turned down and cancelled the deals.
Malik further claimed that the PM Narendra Modi had supported him, saying there was no need to compromise on corruption.
Malik also alleged that Kashmir was the most corrupt place in the country.
Addressing a gathering in Jhunjhunu, Rajasthan, Malik lent his support to the ongoing farmer agitation against the Centre’s three contentious farm laws and said he was ready to leave his post and stand with them if their protest continued.
Reportedly, in October 2018, Malik had cancelled the tie-up with Reliance General Insurance Company for providing the group health insurance to employees as there was some “bungling” in it.
Two days later, the Governor approved foreclosure of the contract with the company and referred the matter to the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) for examining the entire process to see whether it was conducted in a transparent and fair manner.
