Farooq Abdullah exposed by RK Singh
4/23/2014 12:28:04 AM
Early Times Report Jammu, Apr 22: Dr Farooq Abdullah has been exposed like never before by the former union home secretary RK Singh.

Early Times Report Srinagar, Apr 22: As entire gamut of reservations has been thoroughly politicized across the country, the reservation of Backwards areas has also been caught in the political muck in J&K. While many areas have put up a strong case for their reservation under Backward areas, the others which have been categorized under RBA need to be de notified to make way for the deserving ones. However, the entire process has been struck in the political vested interests and the people of the deserving areas have been deprived of their legitimate right.

Has Kashmir really taken a favourable turn?
Scare in South Kashmir likely to impact polling
4/23/2014 12:27:18 AM
