Satya Pal Malik who was sworn-in as Governor of Goa on Sunday said that his earlier stint as Governor was at a “very problematic place”, however, he “dealt with it successfully”.
“Jammu and Kashmir was known as a very problematic place but I have dealt with it successfully and have successfully solved all the issues,” newsagency ANI quoted Malik as saying.
“Now I have come to a place that is peaceful, is progressing and the leadership is not controversial. I will have a peaceful and good time here as the people are also very good,” ANI quoted Malik as saying.
Malik was appointed as Governor of Goa by President Ram Nath Kovind on October 25. Malik was the Governor of the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir before it was bifurcated into two Union Territories — Jammu and Kashmir with a legislature, and Ladakh without a legislature, ANI reported.
