Jammu discriminated in Prez rule too
400 unemployed youth await JKEDI steering committee meet
6/18/2019 12:43:32 AM
Early Times Report Jammu, June 17: There's no end to discrimination against Jammu province even during the ongoing President's rule in the state. Take for instance, the attitude of JKEDI towards the unemployed and educated youth of Jammu.

Sources say the last steering committee meeting of the JKEDI was held in Jammu province in November-December 2018 and since then no meeting of the committee has been held. Sources disclosed that JKEDI announced the date of steering committee meet as June 7 for Kashmir and June 12 for Jammu province.

6/18/2019 12:43:14 AM
Early Times Report Jammu, June 17: It seems that the All India Congress Committee president Rahul Gandhi has taken the drubbing of his party in the recently held parliamentary polls to his heart.
