5/29/2015 11:41:19 PM
Fazal Khan Early Times Report Srinagar, May 29: As the PDP-BJP government in Jammu and Kashmir is all set to complete its 100-days in office the BJP is yet to set up its grievance cell where common people and the party workers can go with their issues. BJP ministers remaining inaccessible have added to the woes of people who want their grievances to be redressed. Sources told Early Times that party had recently asked one of its office bearers to head the grievance cell in Kashmir but he turned down the offer saying, "I am not sure whether our ministers would honour my recommendations are not as there is too much of leg pulling going on within the party."
