Fazal Khan Ganderbal, Sept 2: Ganderbal, which till the recent past, was considered as the citadel of the ruling National Conference is fast slipping out of the hands of the party.

Fearing defeat, Azad takes up the migrants' issue
Ceasefire violations
9/3/2014 12:47:03 AM
Rustam JAMMU, Sept 2: The Congress leadership is desperate to win some seats in the upcoming Assembly elections. It has started raking up issues which the NC-Congress government could have tackled on its own to an extent, but it didn't do that. What things have changed for them and they have come to realize that they have to go many miles to make up the loss.

Defeating essence of equality, Jammu's Royalty still obsessed with titles
9/3/2014 12:46:37 AM
Abodh Sharma JAMMU, Sept 2: Over six and a half decades after monarchy was abolished in India, a member of the family that once ruled the state is finding it hard to do away with the titles which designate the royalty status, violating the spirit and essence of equality guaranteed by the constitution to the citizens of India. Even as Dr. Karan Singh, the son of Maharaja Hari Singh, the last ruler of the state has refrained from using any such titles after his father affected the accession of the state to the Union of India in 1948, his son Ajat Shatru Singh, a National Conference MLC has not been able to win over the temptation of using the prefix 'MK' (Maharaj Kumar).

48 days go down the drain
9/3/2014 12:46:29 AM

More than a month and half have passed ever since the Education Department issued order for the promotion of post graduate masters/teachers of chemistry as in-charge lecturers, but the posting of concerned officials is yet to be done. The inordinate delay has caused heart-burns among the promoted teachers and they fear that something is cooking behind the scene. The Gazetted...
