SRINAGAR: In an embarrassment for the party, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) state president Ravinder Raina has been caught on tape mocking the outgoing governor and calling the new governor of Jammu and Kashmir as “our man”.
“Ab Jo Governor Aya Hai Woh Hamara Banda Hai (Now the Governor who has taken over is our man”, Raina could be heard telling a group of people around him.
Satya Pal Malik took the oath as governor of JK last week. He replaced N N Vohra, who many feel was not given a graceful farewell.
In the video that has gone viral on social media, Raina said that former governor N N Vohra was always thrusting his point of view. “So we got him replaced with the new one,” he said.
First-time MLA from Nowshera in Rajouri district, Ravinder Raina, was appointed the president of the BJP’s Jammu and Kashmir unit earlier this year.
Raina, an RSS activist, is not new to controversies. He assaulted independent legislator inside the Jammu and Kashmir legislative assembly for hosting a beef party.
