Anarchy mars JU Degree section
10/30/2014 12:21:15 AM
GS Asgotra JAMMU, Oct 29: Anarchy prevailing in certain sections of the administration in University of Jammu has become a reason for harassment and embarrassment for the students who turn up for their important chores. The harassment of students can be easily witnessed in the Degree section, where they are being forced to submit their documents, time and again and even after the lapse of three to four months of submitting application forms along with all relevant documents, their hard earned degrees are not delivered to them. "Nearly three and half months back, I had applied for degree of Graduation. You can imagine the height of carelessness and nonsense that in the last three months,

10/30/2014 12:21:04 AM

It so happened that when rituals were being performed on the body of Dewan before consigning it to flames, the body of a woman was too brought there for cremation. Those, who were carrying the body on their shoulders and the mourners accompanying them, faced a great difficulty to push through the people who had gathered ther

Assembly polls
10/30/2014 12:20:13 AM
Rustam JAMMU, Oct 29: The NC is passing through a very critical phase. Actually, its decline started in 2002, when Omar Abdullah -- who was imposed on the state despite the fact that he was a green-horn in politics and that J&K was a very complicated State - was charged with responsibility of leading the party in the Assembly elections. Significantly, Omar Abdullah who contested from the Ganderbal Assembly constituency not only lost the election to the PDP candidate but the party's strength under his leadership was reduced from 57 to 28. In other words, under the leadership of Omar Abdullah, the NC's tally was reduced by more than 50 per cent. Farooq Abdullah had campaigned only in a few c

Bijay Charak JAMMU, Oct 29: The tall claims of former Union Minister for New and Renewable Energy, Farooq Abdullah for bringing revolution in energy sector by tapping solar energy have seemingly dashed to ground as there is no caretaker of defunct Energy Park and Solar Plants installed in various hospitals and educational institutions.

Uncertain political future
10/29/2014 11:51:20 PM
Neha JAMMU, Oct 29: Former J&K CM and currently Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad, who was trounced by Jitendra Singh in the Lok Sabha election, is feeling the heat. He has, it seems, realized that the Congress has no future in J&K and that its defeat in the assembly elections is imminent. It's true that he, like the JKPCC president Saif-ud-Din Soz, has been asserting and reasserting day-in-and-day-out that the Congress would emerge as the single largest party in the state and would be a kingmaker like it was in 2002 and 2008, but he in his heart of hearts has realized that an anti-Congress and anti-NC wave is sweeping the state.
