Pak army’s ‘Operation Gulmarg’
K N Pandita As the British rulers refused to revoke Durand Line Award on the eve of Indian Independence Act, King Zahir Shah of Afghanistan secretly recruited the tribesmen to raise a lashkar for capturing Peshawar. Pakistani army planners hoodwinked him and patronized the lashkars comprising mostly the Mahsuds and Afridis. They were to be diverted to an incursion into Kashmir. With Qayyum Khan, the Chief Minister of NWFP in the loop, Pak Army planners sand-mapped annexation of the geographically large and strategically crucial State of Jammu and Kashmir. In liaison with the British residual counterpart, they converged on forestalling India’s attempt of retrieving Gilgit-B...

L G Sinha’s Activism –Worth Appreciating
B L Saraf There is cliché that “ a politician’s worst rule is always preferable to a good bureaucratic governance .” What J&K has gone through in the past one year , under a bureaucrat as the head of the administration and what we observe now, under the administrative leadership of a politician , the adage comes true in flesh and blood . Nonetheless , one must not lose sight of the fact that “ a politician’s worst rule ” mentioned in the adage has a clear reference to a democratic form of governance which, unfortunately , we do not have at present . “ Sh G C Murmu may be an expert in financial and other business management ma...

Domicile Certificate for jobs, clear PRC status
K B Jandial On 29th September, 2020, the MoS PMO, Dr. Jitender Singh tweeted that J&K UT Govt has agreed to amend and clarify Rules governing Domicile Certificate (DC) to the eligible persons “for ease of # Domicile Certificate. Formal orders being issued soon.” It is more than a fortnight since this news was broken by Dr. Jitender Singh after discussing with the Lt. Governor and the Chief Secretary the distress of the people of J&K in securing DC but no notification issued yet. The UT Govt had notified the Domicile Rules on 18th May, 2020 that replaced the State Subject with new DC for recruitment in Govt jobs. In one of the statements that reflected his objectiveness, Lt. ...

Revisit Domiciliary Law, Save People From “Pain”
Straight Talk
K. B Jandial To the relief of many, the MoS in PMO, Dr. Jitender Singh tweeted the decision of J&K Govt to amend the Domicile Rules to bring “ease” in issuing these certificates, and to include in its ambit, at least, two categories of persons who were among the real focus of the acrimonious debate on discriminatory nature of the abrogated State Subject law but ironically left out. The Rules notified on May 18, 2020 by UT Govt provide procedure for grant of Domicile certificates to nine categories of people, including the holders of Permanent Resident Certificate (PRC). While the notification is still awaited, the Govt is well advised to revisit these Rules and amend these or cla...

Supreme Court verdict on Shaheen Bagh lockdown
K.N. Pandita The verdict of the Apex Court in a petition filed by BJP MLA Nand Kishore Garg has mostly focused on the constitutional and administrative aspects of the last winter’s Shaheen Bagh sit-down agitation that had caused great inconvenience to the public in a crowded part of the capital for a long time. The sit-down strike ended in March last and the verdict has come seven months later. The long time gap is reflective of rather low priority with which the Apex Court treated the matter. The court verdict has not touched on the political and social parameters inherent in the case obviously because the petitioner had not made any direct reference to those areas in hi...

Tale of “ Your crime versus Your crime “ may be titled in the Second person but when heard carefully , it makes a clear cut battle between First Person and The Second Person - between Me and You -where one party wants to score over the other and hurl a taunt that “ your crime is worse than mine .” In the present context , the parties to the batt...

A few such comments that stoked controversies are listed here but he always managed its fallout: ‘go across the border & get training in arms handling’ (asked NC workers BBC interview); ‘bomb terrorist camps in PoK’ (repeatedly demanded as CM); ‘stone pelters are sacrificing lives for Kashmi...

Mehbooba Mufti Drops shield, divulges Extra-territorial loyalty:BJP
Jammu, October 24 (Scoop News)-The extremely outrageous, deceitful, seditious and provocative statements of PDP Chief Mehbooba Mufti ‘Sayeed’ are equal parts condemnable and eye-opening for people of Jammu and Kashmir.
