BJP MP's area without water
Paloura residents decry Manhas's silence
9/28/2016 11:45:56 PM
Arun Singh Early Times Report Jammu, Sept 28: The tall claims of the BJP to provide the basic amenities to the people and mitigate their sufferings have proved to be "blatant lies," in a glaring instance about BJP leaders being least bothered about the sufferings of Jammu people, the Paloura area, where the BJP MP Shamsher Singh Manhas stays has been without water for the past one week. Sources told Early Times that nobody from the PHE department has visited the area and the powerful Rajya Sabha MP Shamsher Singh Manhas has made no attempt to intervene to help the people. Shockingly the adamant attitude of the concerned Junior Engineer PHE has put the people of the area in great distress. Whenever residents contacted the JE he expressed his helplessness citing shortage of manpower and obliquely denied help to the people. They said that JE gave argument that presently he had only one employee under his disposal for opening the water supply and had to cater to vast area and it wa...

These people are creating 'trouble' and the irony is that little or no action is taken against such persons. Non-action from the people at helm against such persons has increased the trouble f...

9/28/2016 11:21:43 PM
Early Times Report Srinagar, Sept 28: Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti’s most trusted lieutenant nicknamed Birbal has evoked ridicule for urging students, teachers and others to read Syed Ali Geelani’s Wullar Kinary.

The book urges the youth to stand up for their right to self determination. Geelani, for the information of Birbal, does not accept Jammu Kashmir’s accession to the Union of India. According to him, accession was never signed and India “annexed Kashmir by brute force and went back on its promise of holding a referendum.” The students, by an...
