Observe 22nd October as Black Day, 26th October as Accession Day
Straight Talk
By K B Jandial Jammu has mostly got its priorities wrong and its commitment to certain principles and vital political issues, appears to be casual giving long rope to anti-Jammu and anti-India forces. Political parties including BJP that claims to represent hardcore nationalistic forces, too skirting the core issues and mostly unite Jammu on anti-Kashmir and regional discrimination issues. Jammu rose after a long slumber to celebrate Maharaja Hari Singh’s birthday publically with reasonable enthusiasm this year on 23rd September after 57 years of his death and 69 years after his birthday holiday was withdrawn by Sheikh Abdullah. More than birthday ‘politics’, there are...

Will anyone own struggle for Accession Day?
Straight Talk
By K B Jandial Fifty six years after his death, Maharaja Hari Singh did a remarkable feat for his native place- he ‘united’ Jammu on at least one issue, be that is on public holiday on his birthday. Even though Mehbooba Govt didn’t accede to the growing demand for a public holiday on 23rd September, Maharaja’s soul must be extremely contended to see that he was able to unite almost all organisations-political, cultural, social, literary, youth, trade and Industry. The magnitude of the public functions, mostly in the winter capital of the State and public enthusiasm is indeed a greater achievement of the cause rather than getting a public holiday. And the Maharaja...

Home Minister’s panacea of 5 Cs
By K.N Pandita Home Minister Rajnath Singh has just concluded his 4-day visit to J&K. He spent maximum of his time in Srinagar, and the customary eye wash of visit to Jammu by way of a balancing act. I looked up in dictionary to find out if 5-Cs carries some deeper or mysterious meaning. I found none. What does HM want to convey and to whom, is my question. One usually observed ritual about Kashmir issue is to “talk in hyperbole”. Responsible Central and State Ministers all take recourse to hyperbole when they are under pressure to articulate on the genesis of Kashmir question. It is never a straightforward and honest articulation and the reason is that they have no c...

ARC alone can end Jammu discrimination
Straight Talk

While the Home Minister group came to Jammu after spending t...

PM reshuffles his ministerial team
By K.N. Pandita For the first time ever since Narendra Modi formed NDA government in 2014, a major reshuffle has been made in the ministerial team. Common belief is that ministerial reshuffle is not a major event that takes place during the tenure of a party in power. From that angle the recent is not fraught with any unusual significance. Reshuffling of the Council of Ministers is the prerogative of a Prime Minister, who, in the parlance of political science is the first among the equals. The essential philosophy behind reshuffle is neither disapproval nor censure of any ministerial colleague though deducing such negative inferences is something like a fantasia that has s...

J&K: Way ahead
By B L Saraf By way of mid-term appraisal of his governance, PM Narendra Modi has just reshuffled the Cabinet. Merit of the exercise apart, Cabinet changes are a routine affair, used as a device for ensuring administrative efficiency and effective political management required for better election results. We are given to understand that changes in the Cabinet were, partly, based on performance and, in part, aimed at 2019 Lok Sabha elections : that indolence has been punished and efficiency appreciated. It is good to see accountability catching up with the persons perched at the top. As it is with a commercial enterprise so with the Government, it is better to have a period...
