PM Modi was 'very arrogant', says Meghalaya governor
New Delhi : Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been tagged as "very arrogant" by Meghalaya governor Satya Pal Malik, who had gone to meet him over the farm laws.
Addressing a public function in Dardri (Haryana), Satya Pal Malik said, "He was very arrogant. When I told him that 500 of our own farmers had died, he asked, 'Did they die for me?'"
"I told him yes, since you are the king. Anyway, I ended up having a fight with him. He told me to meet Amit Shah and so I did," the Governor added.
The governor had been taking swipes at the Central government over the farm laws; he has often reiterated that he is not scared of being asked to step down from his post. He was appointed governor -- in Jammu and Kashmir and Goa, before being posted to Meghalaya.
His remarks come after the three controversial farm Acts were withdrawn by the centre in November 2021, days before one of the longest-standing protest by farmers on Delhi borders was to complete a year on November 26.
