8/28/2014 12:44:16 AM
Early Times Report SRINAGAR, Aug 27: While Omar Abdullah's coalition government in Jammu and Kashmir continues to be conveniently in slumber over circulation of the adulterated food articles and the lawmakers exhaust their energies fully on the competitive separatism, hundreds of thousands of the consumers are running the risk of contracting fatal diseases. In the latest development, a Kolkata-based referral laboratory has found the same samples of turmeric powder and fat-free butter contaminated with highly hazardous chemical and organic ingredients which had been fraudulently cleared for consumption by Food Analyst of Kashmir Division.

8/28/2014 12:44:05 AM
Jehangir Rashid SRINAGAR, Aug 27: National Conference's Provincial President for Jammu and Member of Legislative Council (MLC), Devinder Singh Raina today broke down and cried like a spoilt child after his resolution seeking resumption of dialogue between India and Pakistan was not taken up for discussion by the Upper House. Rana also lost his cool when some of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) legislators supported Dr. Shahnaz Ganai as her calling attention notice regarding shelling in the border areas in Jammu division was not taken up by the House. Rana's 'drama' led to ruckus in the House with pandemonium also being witnessed in the Upper House. As soon as the House took up the res...

Who is to promote, art, culture and language in JK?
Short listed are not from Cultural Academy
8/28/2014 12:43:52 AM
Akshay Azad Jammu, Aug 27: Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has apparently made Jammu and Academy of Art Culture and Languages (JKAACL) its personal fiefdom, as instead of appointing deserving officials from within the Academy as Secretary, he is attempting to adjust a blue eyed person. Astoundingly, the Search committee, constituted by government, has shortlisted five persons for the post, none of whom is from Academy as out of five, two are retired officers, an IFS officer, a simple dramatist and a research fellow of Kashmir University. Sources informed Early Times that according to the constitution of JKAACL, president of Academy, Chief Minister with the consultation of state government, ...

Neha Jammu, Aug 27: People of the state in general and Jammu province in particular, who live near the Line of Control (LoC) and International Border, have been suffering at the hands of Pakistani barbarians, who have been resorting to unprovoked firing on an unprecedented scale, particularly since January this year.

CM's announcements restricted to papers only
Deadline expires, no recommendations submitted yet to set up Veterinary University
8/28/2014 12:43:28 AM
Avinash Azad Jammu, Aug 27: The phrase "One step ahead two steps back", seems fit in the case of Chief Minister Omar Abdullah-led state government, which is leaving no stone un-turned to impress the voters by announcing various development projects ahead of assembly elections but none in the administration is taking care for implementation of these announcements. It is an irony that despite the expiry of deadline fixed by government to submit the recommendations for establishment of Veterinary University, the committee is yet to submit report. Sources said that consequent upon the Planning Commission of India (PCI) proposal, the state government had constituted a committee on July 17 las...

"Peep into past and see who tried to buy media?'
Omar's memory short lived!
8/28/2014 12:42:44 AM
Early Times Report SRINAGAR, Aug 27: Chief Minister Omar Abdullah at the end of his tenure has trained guns at the local media houses in Jammu and Kashmir. His recent statement that Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has purchased the local newspapers to run a "propaganda campaign" against him and his government is shocking! It seems the Chief Minister believes that media houses are a "saleable commodity" which anybody can purchase. It looks like Chief Minister' memory is short lived. Early Tim...

Jammu leaders too failed to raise on right platforms the encounter killings of local youth
Police have no authority to kill criminals, their job is to send cases to courts
8/28/2014 12:39:52 AM
Early Times Report JAMMU, Aug 27: The November 21, 2010, encounter killing of Rakesh Giri had raised hue and cry across the winter capital, mainly because the spot, where he was said to have fallen prey to police bullets near Satyam Resorts, Greater Kailash, was devoid of splattered blood and blood stains. Though there was no concrete evidence to his alleged fake encounter, police too had not come out in their protection against the hue and cry. Police had termed Giri as a contract killer and...

Queer ways of Congress
8/28/2014 12:34:48 AM
Kunal Shrivatsa Jammu, Aug 27: Though the Election Committee of Pradesh Congress has sent the panels of short listed candidates for the forthcoming Assembly polls in the state to the Screening Committee, the 'bizarre' methodology to finalize the same has created a furore in the party circles.

Sources informed Early Times that a large number of Congress workers and their leaders representing different Assembly constituencies are baffled that some of the representatives in the Congress Election Committee are themsel...

Omar's Kashmir centric agenda: While granting amnesty to stone pelters of Kashmir, he forgot Jammu, Kishtwar
8/28/2014 12:34:35 AM
Early Times Report Jammu, Aug 27: Omar Abdullah's politics has from the very beginning been revolving around Kashmir only. In the latest case, his government announced amnesty for the stone pelters of Kashmir but while doing so, he forgot that he is the Chief Minister of Jammu too and in this region also, there are many youth who were booked by police in the incidents of stone throwing during the Amarnath land row. But he and his Jammu-based party colleagues have never uttered even a single word to also grant such amnesty to the youth of Jammu region, including those who were booked in such cases during the recent Kishtwar communal clashes.

Love him or hate him
Omar is Chief Ministerial candidate of NC
8/27/2014 11:47:41 PM
Shakeel A Khan SRINAGAR, Aug 27: Omar Abdullah is trying hard to project himself as the key player after the defeat of the National Conference in the Parliamentary elections. Whether Doctor Farooq Abdullah has decided on his own to say good bye to the politics or he has been forced to do so cannot be authenticated at this point of time. Come what the reality may be, Omar Abdullah seems to be the self styled chief ministerial candidate of the NC much to the dislike of the seniors of the party. But if the people close to the party are to be believed, it is the political immaturity of Omar Abdullah which has done irreparable damage to the party and he is not enjoying that command and respec...
