BJP's bastion, pro-separatists rules Cluster University Jammu
6/24/2018 11:35:52 PM
Early Times Report Jammu, June 24: In a major setback to the nationalist sentiment in Jammu province, academic activities are being silently handed over into the hands of "pro-separatist lobby and their sympathizers" with some forces misguiding New Delhi on the sensitive issue. After "infiltration" into the Cluster University Jammu, the "pro-separatist lobby" is about to take over the iconic University of Jammu, when the province is seen as BJP bastion. Read on. In brazen violation of established norms and practices, the Cluster University of Jammu has nominated two allegedly pro-separatist personalities in their university council. Official sources said: "Kapil Kak who is known for his sympathy towards the pro-separatists and Prof Sidiq Wahid, who is hardcore sympathizer of the pro-separatists have been included in the council."

List of BJP betrayal is long
Jammu seething with anger - III

Early Times Report JAMMU, June 24: Interlocutor used to defend Article 35A: The party, which claimed day and night that it inherited the legacy of Syama Prasad Mookerjee, was supposed to remove from the constitution not just Article 370, but also Article 35-A. It was a must given the fact that that it had made unjust, invidious and humiliating distinctions between the male and female residents of J&K but also deprived the Hindu-Sikh refugees from Pakistan of their right to rife. Not just this. It also declared on May 14, 1954 all Indians other than residents of J&K as a persona non-grata in J&K. The fact of the matter is that it empowered the state government to grant or not grant citiz...

Early Times Report Jammu, June 24: The fall of the PDP-BJP coalition government in Jammu and Kashmir is likely to end the hegemony of the officials of the state-run Information department who left no stone unturned to appease their political bosses during the past three and a half years.

A source said that officials of the Information got away with anything as they were not answerable to anyone. "During the past three years no one asked them what they were doing. Despite news reports and RTIs being filed nothing changed on the ground. Officials remained untouched and...

Early Times Report Jammu, June 24: Even as the Bharatiya Janta Party supremo Amit Shah openly accused the previous Mufti government of resorting to corruption and hindering development works, what is preventing the central government from ordering a high level probe into the allegations of large-scale corruption and favoritism.
