Mudasir Tariq Early Times Report Srinagar, Jan 25 : Despite lofty claims by the Power Development department to install meters in every household of the state, only forty percent of the installation has been completed while the department has missed several deadlines.

"It would b...

Money Game!
1/25/2015 11:04:49 PM
Pak sponsored tanzeems want to keep pot boiling ET Report JAMMU, Jan 25: Once again separatists have called for a shutdown in Kashmir on the occasion of Republic Day. The practice of calling for a strike on January 26 has been going on since 1990 as separatists believe that by doing so they do a favour to Kashmiris. What an irony! How wrong they are. Statements calling for a strike start pouring in at least a week before January 26 celebrations. Even the tanzeems which comprise only of three to four people ensure that their statement reaches the news organizations well in advance and gets published. In the hey days of militancy usually the militant outfits used to call for the strike a...

NC dashes Azad's hopes to the ground
Rajya Sabha election
1/25/2015 11:03:36 PM
Early Times Report JAMMU, Jan 25: Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad, who reportedly tried his level best to enlist the support of the National Conference and the PDP to re-enter the Rajya Sabha, has, it seems, failed in his game plan. The PDP, which has 28 MLAs, has already announced two candidates for the Rajya Sabha elections and left the remaining two seats for its future potential ally BJP. In other words, the PDP has shown thumb to Azad. The Congress has 12 MLAs and it needs the support of 15 NC MLAs and three independent MLAs to win a Rajya Sabha seat. Azad needs the support of 30 MLAs to make it to the Rajya Sabha. Significantly, not all the Congress support Azad. There is a powerful...

Rustam Early Times Report JAMMU, Jan 25: Member of Lok Sabha, PDP's ideologue and perhaps also the author of the PDP's self-rule document and former Deputy Chief Minister Muzzaffar Hussain Beig is perhaps one Kashmiri leader who appreciates the fact that the relations between the people of Jammu province and Kashmir regions are far from normal and that the PDP-BJP coalition government in the state alone could harmonize inter-regional relations. Beig perhaps is also the only Kashmiri leader who has been consistent on his stand on the government formation. Right from December 23, when the elections threw up a hung assembly, Beig has been batting for coalition between the PDP and the BJP,...
