Former Union Minister Prof. Saifuddin Soz on Wednesday condemned the recent statement made by J&K Chief Secretary BVR Subramanyam citing corruption in the state as the reason for its backwardness.

“Now that Chief Secretary Subramanyam is openly indulging in misconceived political ponzism, his stance must be defeated as fallacious. I think the Kashmir mainstream political class must reject the fallacious concept of Sumbramanyam and ask him to cite examples of J&K Govt. having been managed in the past corruptly and fraudulently,” he said in a media statement released on Wednesday.

“I have never been part of the J&K Govt. in my life, although I have been a member of the political class from yester years to the present times.

I am certain that Subramanyam has wrongly decided to give grist to RSS/BJP propaganda machine simply to make ‘hay while the sun of political patronage is shining’,” Soz said.


“Subramanyam must show the calibre of a civil servant who has looked into the system properly and come forward to suggest reforms. He has to pinpoint, at least, major frauds committed in the system and the people responsible for such fraudulent activities. Otherwise, he will be rated as a propagandist of the worst kind,” he added.

“My other suggestion is that if he doesn’t respond to my queries and those of the CPI(M), he should resign and join RSS/BJP combine and abuse the people of Kashmir, in routine, openly,” he said.

“Meanwhile, I would advise the Lt. Governor Manoj Sinha to examine Subramanyam’s wholly political statement and its implications and explain his position before the people of India, especially the people of J&K UT. The sooner he does this, better for him,” Soz said.
