TOP STORY OF THE DAY
Amid stringent security arrangements, South Kashmir goes to polls today
Riding on favorable tide, PDP banking on high voter turnout
4/24/2014 12:11:41 AM
Jehangir Rashid/Mustansir SRINAGAR, Apr 23: Amidst the fear that voters may be targeted in certain pockets the people of four districts of South Kashmir are all set to cast their votes for the Anantnag Lok Sabha seat tomorrow. Killing of two Panchayat representatives and two other persons over the past one week or so has led to scare among the people with some of them reluctant to exercise their franchise. The threatening posters issued by militant outfit Hizbul Mujahideen asking people to stay away from elections may impact the overall voting percentage. With militants holding sway in certain localities falling in Tral and Shopian areas it is quite possible that a good number of people may not cast their votes. Since the Tral area witnessed killing of a Sarpanch, his son and a numberdar on Mondaynight, people are quite scared and they will think twice before casting their votes. Pertinent to mention here that Sarpanch, Ghulam Nabi Mir, his son Firdous Ahmad and numberdar Mohamm...

Leadership faltered in 'screening' of candidates
4/24/2014 12:11:20 AM
Early Times Report Jammu, Apr 23: Notwithstanding the fact that its candidate has no locus standi on political waters of the constituency nor has an iota of chance to register vote bank, BJP is using all its resources to the hilt for the Srinagar-Budgam Parliamentary seat.

Killings of sarpanchs put big question mark on Omar Govt
4/24/2014 12:11:09 AM
Early Times Report Jammu, Apr 23: The killings of sarpanchs and then en-mass resignation by other elected representatives of panchayats has put a big question mark on Omar Abdullah government for not providing protection to them. Resignation of these sarpanches and panches will take state back to its earlier days when people were not participating in democratic exercise. Omar Abdullah has been claiming that Panchayat elections was one of the biggest achievement of his government but the kind of damage these deaths have done to the democracy is vast and the Chief Minister must not forget that it was his duty to provide protection to these members of panchayats. Now, when these sarpanch...

Restoring Article 370 to its original position
Congress, NC on the same page
4/24/2014 12:10:18 AM
Rustam JAMMU, Apr 23: Cat is out of the bag. Senior Congress leader and former Cabinet Minister, Abdul Gani Vakil, on Tuesday had left none in any doubt that the Congress and the NC are on the same bed and that both the parties are out for a regime that limits the jurisdiction of New Delhi over Jammu & Kashmir to just three subjects - foreign affairs, defence and and communication - and empowers the Kashmiri leadership to not only enjoy unbridled legislative, executive and financial powers but also empowers it to re-establish in the state a local oligarchy, with common people having no right in the governance of the state. This is not going to happen. Gone are the days when the outfits...

4/24/2014 12:10:01 AM
Shakeel A Khan SRINAGAR, Apr 23: The state of Jammu & Kashmir has become a safe haven for the companies selling substandard medicines as the trade is going on unabated under the nose of government agencies.

The Drug and Food Control organization recently came up with a list of twenty seven items of substandard medicines which are procured from Haryana, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand. According to the sources there are hundreds of chemist shops which are not licensed. Some of the shopkeepers have managed to get the licenses due to a nexus between these shopkeepers and the officials of the concerned organizati...

4/24/2014 12:09:48 AM
Neha JAMMU, Apr 23: The prospect of BJP's PM nominee Narendra Modi assuming power in Delhi after May 16 is keeping the Pakistani leadership and civil society awake in the night.
