Khanday's retention alone can solve impasse
Kaun Banega Chief Secretary?
8/28/2015 11:47:50 PM
Abdul Majid Early Times Report Srinagar, Aug 28: Even as vested interests are trying to sabotage appointment of BR Sharma as the new Chief Secretary, Iqbal Khanday may emerge winner by retaining the top chair only because their IAS colleague Khurshid Ganie is only a "third party to the dispute". While the State Cabinet has hinted at BR Sharma taking over as the next boss of the bureaucracy, voices within the Government are hell bent on creating confusion. Quarters within the Civil Secretariat are propagating that Sharma is junior to at least to four IAS officers - Ashok Kumar Angurana, Arun Kumar, his wife Sonali Kumar and Khursheed A Ganai and thus "couldn't be given the top charge." They say if Sharma is elevated as Chief Secretary, the only official in this senior-most list of five, who will feel offended is Khurshid Ganie and thus the latter be made the boss.

And his flip flops notwithstanding the fact that India is five-time bigger than Pakistan in terms of land area and population-wise Pakistan is far, far behind and India has inflicted four crushing defeats on Pakistan. The Modi Government has no foreign policy vis-à-vis Pakistan. Nor has it any policy vis-à-vis Jammu & Kashmir. That's the reason Pakistan has been terrorizing and bleeding...

A B Sharma Early Times Report Sunderbani, Aug 28: The present dispensation in the state of Jammu and Kashmir has very tightly held on one rhetorical sloganeering pronounced by Prime Minister Narender Modi of ushering the nation into development, and the bunch of ministerial heads here are too following their masters hollow voice merrily .
