Congress leaders in Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday took out a protest march here against remarks made by Governor Satya Pal Malik and Prime Minister Narendra Modi about former Prime Minister late Rajiv Gandhi.
The Governor on Thursday said that Gandhi was not initially corrupt but had got involved in the Bofors corruption scam under the influence of some people while Modi recently accused him of using aircraft carrier INS Viraat "as a taxi for a private holiday".
Bhalla said the statement has made Malik a spokesman of the BJP and unworthy of the constitutional position he holds.
He said Modi and Amit Shah had brought the standard of the electoral campaign so low that it had now become a slanging match with abuses being hurled at the political rivals of the BJP.
