Dogra icon eying Raj Bhawan!
11/28/2014 12:10:45 AM
Syed Junaid Hashmi Early Times Report JAMMU, Nov 27: Congress is in for more trouble with ex-President and later Governor of Jammu and Kashmir Dr. Karan Singh's new found love with BJP. His son and ex-MLC of National Conference (NC) Ajatshatru Singh joined BJP in New Delhi. National President of BJP Amit Shah held a press conference to announce Ajatshatru's entry into BJP. Not only this, he has been assigned the critical task of winning over Rajput votes for BJP from various corners of the state. Prior to joining BJP, Ajatshatru had switched over from Congress to NC, when Chief Minister Omar Abdullah took over as Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir in 2009. Omar immediately handed over ticket to the Legislative Council to Ajatshatru while ignoring several other party loyalists. If the sources are to be believed, it was Omar's father and ex-Chief Minister Dr. Farooq Abdullah who had vociferously batted for induction of Ajat in the Legislative Council. But what makes story of roya...

Beyond BJP's mission 44+
11/28/2014 12:09:27 AM
Abodh Sharma Early Times Report JAMMU, Nov 27: While even BJP sympathizers have been confessing from the very beginning that party's hyped mission 44+ was exaggerated and irrational, the complacency and dissent within the party over distribution of tickets has caused unfathomable damage to the fortunes of the party and the party is now counting desperately on the oratory of Prime minister Narendra Modi who is scheduled to address several rallies ahead of remaining four phases of ensuing Assembly elections here.

Manifesto 2014
11/28/2014 12:09:03 AM
Neha Early Times Report JAMMU, Nov 27: Gone are the days when the Abdullahs would say without mincing words that the National Conference stood for greater autonomy and that it would go to any extent to force New Delhi to withdraw all the central laws and institutions extended to the state after August 9, 1953. After the dismissal and arrest of Sheikh Abdullah on that day, the Government of India with the concurrence of the state Government extended 94 of the 97 entries in the Central List of topics for legislation to Jammu and Kashmir.

11/28/2014 12:08:51 AM

A student from the same institution believes the people are interested in employment and development. "The Omar led coalition regime has faile...

11/28/2014 12:08:23 AM
Masood Malik Early Times Report Jammu, Nov 27: Bhartiya Janta Party's 'vision document 'released today has given the whole Jammu province a 'legal certificate' of its manipulative and deceptive game plan for Jammu and points enough to ponder as to where the aspirations of the people of region stand, the sentiments that made the party ride to victory with 11 MLAs in 2008. However, the latest 2014 document released today has nothing for them. Though it has 152 asterix marked lines inclusive of various developmental and infrastructural issues to be taken, it has nothing on the 'pressing needs' of the Jammu region which are wide ranging from abrogation of Art 370, delimitation of assembly s...
