Under pressure from Centre, JK Govt mulls 'Ordinance route' to end GST stalemate …
6/25/2017 11:20:37 PM
Early Times Report Jammu, June 25: As sharp differences on GST implementation persist within political parties of the state, the PDP-BJP coalition is learnt to be contemplating to 'settle and solve' the stalemate through an ordinance, a move which will see much resistance on the face of it, even though the opposition many raise an outcry later in the Assembly when it will be tabled for passage of the Act. Sources said as consensus eludes between all political parties on one hand and ruling PDP is under constant pressure from its own partner BJP to get the Act implemented before July 1 when the GST regime gets implemented across the nation as one Tax Regime, and on the other hand opposition is not allowing it in present form, the government is left with no option of taking the route of ordinance in the matter. This move has become imperative as the Muzaffar Beigh led All Party Meeting on Friday concluded without any 'useful' business as both NC and Congress chose to boycott the meeti...

Abodh Sharma Early Times Report Jammu, June 25: With deadline for the implementation of Goods and services tax (GST) breathing at the neck and state government reportedly mulling the ordinance route, the Opposition has woefully exposed itself by opposing the GST in the name of 'autonomy' and 'special status' of the state of J&K. The hypocrisy of the National Conference and Congress, the two principle opponents of the GST who are advocating the autonomy and alleged dilution of special status of the state is shamefully on display as these two political parties which enjoyed power in the state for maximum time have actually made the state a financial parasite on the central government. The...

GST
6/25/2017 11:16:30 PM
Early Times Report JAMMU, June 25: The effort of the Mehbooba Mufti-led PDP-BJP coalition Government to evolve consensus on the GST issue has failed to produce the desired result.

Follow KPS Gill's anti-terror strategy in Kashmir'
6/25/2017 11:14:59 PM
Early Times Report JAMMU, June 25: The lynching to death of Dy SP Mohammad Ayub Pandit has shaken the nation and the J&K police itself. The reasons are not far to seek.

Grapevine is that it was a mob of 200, all followers of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, who lynched Pandit to death. His brutal murder has led many internal security experts to urge the Union Government to adopt the former Punjab Director General of Police KPS Gill's line in Kashmir so that the scourge ...
