Addressing a public meeting in Jammu's Kishtwar division on Sunday, Kamal, who is additional general secretary of ruling the National Conference on Sunday said the Government of India is an “enemy of the state”. He also accused troops of disturbing the peace in Jammu and Kashmir.
Kamal has made embarrassing remarks in the past as well. Exactly a year ago National Conference president Farooq Abdullah had asked his younger brother Mustafa Kamal to quit the party posts of additional general secretary and chief spokesman hours after a derogatory remark on Rahul Gandhi.
Kamal had said that Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi “has no role in running the Jammu and Kashmir government”. His statement came in response to a remark by J&K Congress chief Saifuddin Soz, who said Gandhi was not happy with the governance in the state.
Kamal was advised to exercise restraint and follow the party line on all issues.
