J&K Economic Reconstruction Agency Wednesday had organised a press conference to brief the media about the three mega drainage projects worth Rs 160 crore.
According to Directorate of Information Kashmir, the press conference was to be attended by Dy CM Dr Nirmal Singh who also holds the additional charge of Housing and Urban Development Department at 4 PM.
However, Nirmal Singh didn’t turn up at the venue of the press conference till 5 PM.
Infuriated by the delay, the newsmen started leaving the conference hall at 4:45 PM. However, Commissioner Srinagar Municipal Conference Showkat Ahmad Zargar pacified the angry media personnel for quite some time.
When finally, Dy CM showed up an hour later, the livid media men boycotted the press conference and left the venue in a huff.
