Meghalaya Governor Satya Pal Malik attacked the Centre over the farmers’ issue. He said he was not scared of stepping down from his post if asked. He made the comment while addressing the ‘Jat Global Summit’ here. Referring to his recent statements on farm laws, Malik said he was made the governor by a couple of people in Delhi and was fully aware that he was speaking against their will on farm issues. “The day they tell me that they have a problem (with my statements), I will not even wait for a minute to resign. On the very first day, I spoke for the farmers and was prepared to leave and to join the farm protest,” said Malik. Raising the silence of the central government on the deaths of farmers at the protest site, Malik said over 600 people have died in the country’s biggest farm movement but not a word of condolence from the top leaders was unfortunate.
