J-K Raj Bhawan's fax machine still broken: Omar Abdullah

Press Trust of India  |  Srinagar 

The Raj Bhawan's fax machine, which was at the centre of a political drama last month, made again after claimed his attempt to send a letter to S P failed as it was still not working.

The former was trying to fax a letter to Malik expressing the National Conference's (NC) concerns over reports of changes proposed to the procedure of granting permanent residence certificates in the state.

He shared the letter on

"I'm trying to fax a letter to jandkgovernor but the fax machine still isn't working. The operator who answered the phone says the fax operator is on holiday as it's a Sunday. Will attempt again tomorrow in the meantime am forced to put the letter out through social media," Abdullah said in a tweet.

"J&K needs a new fax machine urgently," he said, retweeting a post from November 21.

The Raj Bhawan's fax machine made headlines last month when Malik abruptly dissolved the state assembly.

On November 21, letters to stake claim to form government by the and a two-member party, People's Conference, allegedly failed to reach the governor, apparently because the machine was not operational.

Malik later said the fax operator was unavailable on account of Eid-i-Milad-un-Nabi, which is a state holiday.
