KL Report


A cabinet meeting on Saturday at 2 PM will decide the fate of Omar Abdullah led coalition government when the cabinet sub committee will submit its report over the creation of additional administrative units in the state. Omar had accused Congress of being not supportive in ensuing “effective governance” of the state by adding to the existing administrative units.

Dy CM- CSC Meeting-29Reports from Jammu said the CSC started its meeting at 2.30 PM in the state guest house under the chair of DCM Tara Chand. While NC is represented by Akbar Lone, Ajay Kumar Sadotra, Mir Saifullah, Congress has Sham Lal Sharma, Nawang Rigzin Jora, G A Mir and Ghulam Hassan Mir.

“Initially, the members were getting in and out of the venue quite frequently,” sources told Kashmir Life. “Then they all came out for around 15 minutes and went to separate rooms and were probably talking to their parties. And then they all came and again they are meeting.” Officials associated with the ministers said the meeting seems to be taking place smoothly and it is not noisy.

A source privy to the meeting said there are discordant notes from the two sides. But there are efforts to have some sort of consensus.

While Omar has said he can go move out of the government – obviously without coming out of the UPA, most of his party leaders and also those in Congress are against creating any situation that can lead to such a crisis. Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh is visiting Jammu for two days from Sunday.
