BJP at civil war over reserved seats
7/24/2014 11:47:04 PM
Abodh Sharma Jammu, July 24: The aspirants of party mandate for the seven reserved seats of Jammu region have been ravaged by bitter factionalism and rivalry has broken out amongst candidates belonging to various castes and sub castes for getting the mandate for seats reserved for candidates of reserved categories. While there is by and large a consensus within BJP to repeat mandate to the sitting MLAs who have been elected from reserved candidates including Durga Dass from Hiranagar, Bharat Bhushan Bodi from Raipur Damana and Gharu Ram Bhagat from R S Pura, sources within the party divulge that Bali Bhagat, the state general secretary of the party is trying to throw spanner in the scheme of things by trying to carve out a reserved seat for himself. "He is trying to engineer a divide within the schedule caste leaders and workers of the party for his vested interests," said a party functionary pleading anonymity. "He should contest from Ramban from where he comes as it is also a rese...

7/24/2014 11:46:14 PM
Early Times Report JAMMU, July 24: Chief Minister Omar Abdullah is desperately taking up confrontation with the Modi Government at the Centre to save his "sinking ship". He said in the recent past that the "Centre will still find excuse to retain Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) even if all the guns fall silent in the state". He made this statement even after Centre had categorically stated that time is not ripe for the revocation of the AFSPA from the State. The statement of the Modi Government was in line with the previous Government which also didn't connect to the demand of the Chief Minister. Omar had about two years back put all his political eggs in the basket of AFSPA but ...

2 years after constitution, SRDC fails to take off
7/24/2014 11:45:41 PM
Akshay Azad JAMMU, July 24: Majority of the roads in state are in pathetic condition and the decision taken by state Cabinet to improve these roads has yielded no results. After more than two years, since the Government accorded sanction for constitution of State Road Development Corporation (SRDC), it has yet to take off.

Sources informed Early Times that in the month of May 2012, the state Cabinet headed by Chief Minister Omar Abdullah had accorded sanction under Government order number 320-PW-R&B, for setting up of SRD...

Bivek Mathur JAMMU, July 24: With major announcements at the fag end of his coalition Government, Chief Minister Omar Abdullah might have impressed bureaucrats and Ministers in his Cabinet but has failed to impress the public in general.

Is there dearth of KAS/IAS officers in J&K?
7/24/2014 11:45:03 PM
K Koushal JAMMU, July 24: Be it political influence or the lack of competent cadre, a dark duckling has been turned into 'swan' in the School Education Department which almost is witnessing a make shift arrangements for quite a long time in recent past.
