For one LS seat, Congress destroying itself in Jammu, Ladakh
Jihad or election
3/27/2017 12:17:40 AM
Early Times Report Jammu, Mar 26: Is Tariq Hamid Karra a boon or a curse for the Congress party? Karra quit PDP and Lok Sabha seat only recently and joined the Congress. Or, is the Congress itself treading a path that would end whatever little influence it still has in Jammu and Ladakh?

IPS officer suspended promptly for indiscipline in UP
Unbridled cops, officers in administration remain unscathed......!
3/27/2017 12:17:05 AM
Early Times Report Jammu, Mar 26: A pro active approach towards tackling indiscipline in UP by the new government is in sharp contrast to what we find here in our state. Officers both in administration and Police can cross limits to any extent in misusing their authority, yet remain untouched and shielded by the government. In J&K such officers remain protected and pampered whereas in UP one Police officer was promptly suspended for showing indiscipline and criticising the government. It was last year during unabated unrest that, an IAS officer of junior rank became vocal not just against the national media and openly criticized its coverage about unrest, selectively hitting at a couple o...

Kashmiri youth joining militant outfits matter of concern
Kashmir political scene
3/27/2017 12:16:49 AM
Early Times Report Jammu, Mar 26: Things in Kashmir are going from bad to worse. Number of Kashmiri youth joining militancy is multiplying manifold, which debunks the official claim that the situation in Kashmir has considerably improved.

The Lok Sabha record is frightening. The Lok Sabha record means the official record based on the statements made by the concerned ministers. It says, "as many as 88 youths joined militancy in Jammu & Kashmir in 2016, the highest since 2010" and "over 2,100 incidents...
