Governor of Jammu and Kashmir Satya Pal Malik on Sunday requested political parties to maintain the right conduct and said that there must be a difference between terrorists, extremists and, political parties.
Speaking with media here, Malik advised local leaders to avoid making controversial statements and said, "Inflammatory statements of politicians disturb the atmosphere of the valley. In the last 4 months, not even a single youth has gone on the path of terrorism and stone pelting has also reduced. People of Kashmir are very good and want development and peace can be achieved only through talk."
Malik was in Ajmer on a one-day visit to the city. He prayed at the Dargah of Khwaja Moinuddin Chisty and inaugurated a bank here during his visit.
His comments come in the wake of heightened cross-border firing and shelling following the Pulwama terror attack carried out by the Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) and the subsequent air strike conducted by the Indian Air Force targetting terror launch pads in Pakistan's Balakot.
