Experts subjected to stone pelting
9/16/2014 11:35:29 PM
Bashir Assad SRINAGAR, Sept 16: Kashmir's misfortunes are not abating. Hi-power de-watering equipment has reached Srinagar, but the state does not have the manpower available to operate it, despite the dire need.

The Irrigation and Flood Control Department is paralyzed for lack of staff, including officers, engineers and field workers. Sources in the Administration told Early Times that on Sunday, when two ONGC high-power pumps reached here, Chief M...

Babus, top cops prefer private transport to escape public ire
9/16/2014 11:35:12 PM
Early Times Report SRINAGAR, Sept 16: In an interesting turn of events, top bureaucrats and police officers of J&K, who always used only their official vehicles, are now using private vehicles for transport.

By travelling in private vehicles, the officers want to escape attention so that they do not become the target of public ire. Even DIG Central Kashmir Ifad-Ul-Mujtaba was seen moving in a private red Chevrolet Tavera with his guards, and not in his official vehicle. Top bureaucrats are using the same ploy to avoid public backlash. A senior bureaucrat who was also using ...
