Early Times Report

Srinagar, Feb 17: Even as major political crisis has erupted in the Peoples Democratic Party led government in the wake of Cabinet reshuffle and resignation tendered by two of the ministers, the stalemate is feared to last for over a fortnight.
Sources said Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti has taken a serious note of her party ministers behaving like "outlaws against her decision."
While two ministers Syed Basharat Bukhari and Imran Ansari are understood to have resigned, the government is unwilling to accept their resignation for sometime and there will be uncertainty over their fate for over two weeks.
Sources said Mehbooba has decided not to solve the issue before leaving for Umrah pilgrimage on February 23. "She (Mehbooba) is badly hurt by the unruly behavior of her cadres and she doesn't like anyone not accepting her decisions, so she will leave for pilgrimage while keeping the fate of outlaws hanging," said a source close to the Chief Minister.
So while Mehbooba will be away for some days, uncertainty will loom large over fate of the ministers. Sources said Mehbooba will give this time for the ministers to "introspect that government can run smoothly even without them."
"There is no shortage of lawm
Outlaws to face the music

"She is badly hurt by the unruly behaviour of her cadres and she doesn't like anyone challenging her decision. So she will leave for pilgrimage while keeping the fate of outlaws hanging."
kers to be inducted into the Cabinet so number of men is not the issue. The actual issue is indiscipline," said a source close to the government.
He said Mehbooba went for Cabinet reshuffle to give a piece of mind to some of her party ministers and other leaders, who were considering themselves as "indispensible." "There were complaints about corruption against one of the ministers. So given such demeaning complaints of corruption how could be he retained at the same chair," the sources said.
About another minister the Chief Minister is understood to have received complaints that he was settling personal scores with his subordinates. "This minister also needed to be shifted," the sources said.
About a minister who resigned today, sources said failing to have "supremacy" over funding by the central government for development of sports infrastructure, he wanted a more "lucrative ministry."
Another minister who was inducted today aspired to be given Tourism ministry. "Amid so many dreams, Baji wanted them all to be cut to size and this is what has been achieved today," PDP leader said.
He assured that things will be set in order. "But we don't want to act overnight. Let they all get time for introspection. Wait and watch."
