Early Times Report Jammu, Dec 17: Former Chief Minister and the President of the Peoples Democratic Party Mehbooba Mufti misses no opportunity to castigate the Governor's administration in Jammu and Kashmir. "How long are we going to shoulder the coffins of our youngsters? So many civilians killed today post encounter in Pulwama. No country can win a war by killing its own people. I strongly condemn these killings," Mehbooba Mufti had said soon after the seven civilians were killed near the encounter site at Sirnoo Pulwama in south Kashmir on Saturday. An analyst while talking to Early Times said, "When Mehbooba was heading the state in 2016 and protesters were killed in the security forces firing she hit out at the people stating that do they send their children to Army camps to buy toffees and fetch milk?."

Early Times Report Jammu, Dec 17: Misinformation campaign has been launched in Pakistan about the Instrument of Accession signed by Maharaja Hari Singh on October 26, 1947 and accepted by the Government of India.

Are PDP men working as B-team of BJP to polarize voters in Chenab region?
Was Bajrang Dal attack on PDP MLC a fixed match?
12/17/2018 10:45:57 PM
