All the over 1 lakh post-matric scholarships to students of one community
Discrimination of an extreme form with Jammu
5/27/2018 12:05:32 AM
Early Times Report JAMMU, May 26: It may appear unbelievable and ridiculous, but it is a fact that the PDP-BJP coalition Government in Jammu & Kashmir has turned out to be a just one-community-centric dispensation and that the minority community (in this case internally-displaced Kashmiri Hindus and Hindus of Jammu) has no place whatsoever even in those departments of which the BJP is also a part. The case in point is the distribution of post-metric scholarships not during the National Conference-Congress rule, but during the PDP-BJP rule in 2017. The PDP-BJP coalition Government assumed office on March 1, 2015 after the NC and the Congress lost the assembly polls very badly and the PDP e...

After ceasefire, now talks with Pak-founded Hurriyat
BJP playing with dangerous tools in J&K
5/27/2018 12:05:04 AM
Early Times Report JAMMU, May 26: Today, PM Narendra Modi completed four years in office. People of J&K were hoping that his government would today talk tough and send a clear warning to the separatists in Kashmir that no non-sense will be tolerated. But it was not to be. What the BJP today did was just the opposite, suggesting that it would not stop playing with dangerous tools. The Narendra Modi Government on Saturday fielded Home Minister Rajnath Singh to explain its Kashmir policy. Leave alone Jammu and Ladakh, which have no place in the BJP's scheme of things, despite the fact that it was these two regions which gave the BJP 3 seats in the Lok Sabha, with the people of Jammu also giv...

BJP's 'new found love' for terrorists, separatists puts security forces in tight spot
Appeasing Kashmir centric leaders!
5/27/2018 12:04:47 AM
Early Times Report JAMMU, May 26: The decision of the Government of India to announce ceasefire in Jammu and Kashmir has backfired.

"Security forces suspending operations against the terrorists have allowed ultras to regroup and move freely. They have even reached Jammu and are targeting civilians," he said. "It's a...
