TOP STORY OF THE DAY
Polling pattern all set to disturb Mehbooba's apple cart
Her attempts to appease Pak stooges don't yield any results
4/23/2019 11:34:02 PM
Early Times Report Jammu, Apr 23: Polling pattern in south Kashmir's Anantnag district on Tuesday indicated that the Peoples Democratic Party president, Mehbooba Mufti, may have to face an uphill task in next two phases in the same constituency. Mehbooba is contesting her seventh election from south Kashmir. Till date she has contested six elections from here. She had won all the elections but this time around it seems that chips are not in her favour. Her desperate attempts to lure the voters by acting like a separatist and emerging as a "cheer leader" for Pakistan seems to have not worked. Many people believe that Mehbooba was banking on the votes she would have got from the Jamaat cadres and others with separatist leanings in south Kashmir but her "calculations have not fallen at place." "Her loyalists, who were mostly the followers of Pak agents, seem to have ditched her this time. As a last ditch attempt Mehbooba on Monday, just one day before the polling day, tried to con...

4/23/2019 11:33:42 PM
Early Times Report Srinagar, Apr 23: South Kashmir is no more considered bastion for the Peoples Democratic Party. This was seen on Tuesday when voters of Bijbehara virtually rejected Mehbooba Mufti and did not come out to vote.

Enthusiasm missing in south Kashmir LS polls
4/23/2019 11:05:56 PM
Wajahat Shabir Early Times Report Anantnag, Apr 23: Walking down the lane of south Kashmir, one finds more security forces than voters' as most volatile zone of Kashmir went for parliament election on Tuesday.
