Greater Kashmir

Jammu, Jan 23: Union Minister of State (MoS) in the Prime Minister’s Office DrJitendra Singh Friday blamed the National Conference-Congress coalition government for financial crisis in Jammu and Kashmir.
“The previous government failed to manage finances in a proper way, but the central
government is committed to bail out the state from this mess,” he told reporters here.
Singh said whatever observations the Governor NN Vohra has made to Finance Minister would be addressed. Vohra has already written to Jaitely on the issue.
“The financial crunch did not emerge in the past 10 days; it is the pervious state government which is responsible for plunging the state into worst-ever financial crisis,” he said.
He said the PM Modi along with cabinet ministers and a battery of senior bureaucrats from New Delhi visited the state when Srinagar drowned in floods. “It is a commendable example of Modi’s commitment toward the state,” he said.
