Former CM of the state, Mehbooba Mufti wondered, how in this age of technology was it possible that the fax machine was not working. In a tweet, she said, " PS - In todays age of technology, it is very strange that the fax machine at HE Governor's residence didn't receive our fax but swiftly issued one regarding the assembly dissolution."

This issue cropped up after both the PDP and Peoples Conference attempted to contact the Governor's office in a bid to stake a claim to form the government. Their attempts failed as the fax machine at Malik's office was apparently not working.
