The SAC meeting scheduled  today at 10:30 am was ‘surprisingly’ postponed with no next date or timing announced. The meeting was supposed to approve J&K’s budget for fiscal 2016-17.

The reason for postponement of the meeting was cited as  ‘Governor N N Vohra is not feeling well.” All the days, the Finance department officials were busy in finalising the budget proposals which went into printing late Monday night when the last minute changes were incorporated in the final presentation.

Sources in the Secretariat told Kashmir Life that printed copies reached around 12 in the night to the SAC members. After that the top officials left for home.

Tuesday morning when all the officials were ready for the meeting and preparations were being made for media presentation, the news broke that the much important meeting was not happening anymore.

The sources confirmed to Kashmir Life that even top officials who left late night were caught unaware as they had no information of postponement.

According to security officials of the Secretariat, the Governor was scheduled to come in the morning as even the advance party of his security had arrived at the secretariat.

The corridor gossip in the civil secretariat relates the sudden change to imminent government formation. It is being said that the Union Finance minister’s yesterdays’ comment in the parliament about going the extra mile is the reason behind this uncertainty over budget approval.
