Srinagar, Dec 10:  Jammu and Kashmir Government on Monday sought a report from the in-charge official of winter secretariat over the news report appearing in this newspaper about shoddy functioning of the winter secretariat in the summer capital.
 Sources told Greater Kashmir that acting on the report appearing in this newspaper last week, the Under Secretary GAD, Tahir Mustafa Malik today in an official communication sought report on the news story from Additional Secretary Agriculture Production Department, Muhammad Muzaffar Peer.
 “Further action, if any, will be taken on submitting of report by them,” they said. 
 On Thursday, GK reported that the establishment of the much-hyped Winter Secretariat here is proving to be a damp squib as the ministers deputed to the secretariat on rotational basis make a symbolic presence there while rest of the staff often skips duties.
