Cabinet approves Governor’s address

Jammu, Feb 5: Amid reservations by the Congress legislators, state cabinet Tuesday approved the address to be delivered by Governor NN Vorha at the joint session of state legislature on February 28.
Informed sources told Greater Kashmir that the text was read out at the cabinet meeting, chaired by Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Tuesday afternoon.
“Though the proposed address was approved in the meeting, Congress ministers were having their own reservations on the plea that they were not consulted before preparing the address”, sources, preferring not to be named, said.
“It has now become a practice that Congress ministers are not being consulted on major decisions. We have expressed reservations in the past as well”, a Congress minister said.
It was learnt that around five Congress ministers, immediately after the cabinet meeting, had a closed door meeting in the office chamber of Deputy Chief Minister Tara Chand. However, what transpired in the meeting could not be ascertained.
Minister for Medical Education Taj Mohi-ud-Din, however, claimed that there was no question of any reservations on the Governor address. “It is a routine matter and cabinet unanimously approved the text”, he said told Greater Kashmir. He even denied having any knowledge of the meeting at the office chamber of Deputy Chief Minister.
