Jammu, January 06: Since the Chief Minister of the state is admitted in AIIMS, it has become the priority of every minister to rush to Delhi and enquire about his health which is hampering the state government functioning back in Jammu Kashmir.
A local daily has even reported that the government has gone into hibernation with no major administrative activity reported in Jammu and Kashmir for the past two weeks. Not just this but the attendance of ministers of both the PDP and BJP in the Civil Secretariat in Jammu has shown a decline since the CM has flown to Delhi for treatment.
As per the insiders, the last cabinet meeting at the Civil Secretariat had held on December 02 and it is now being more than a month, no good administrative activity has recorded in the secretariat. Even the date for the next meeting is not yet decided.
This situation was bound to happen due to the absence of the government head,” said a low-rung official at the Civil Secretariat on the condition of anonymity.
He has also said that the civil secretariat has witnessed a constant decline in the number of visitors to the Civil Secretariat during the past one week due to the absence of ministers and officers from their office chambers.
However, the ministers of the coalition government were seen visiting the chief minister in Delhi who was admitted to AIIMS on December 24 and his condition has remained critical since then. Reports have also revealed that there are ministers who had already been camping in New Delhi while five others (three of the BJP and two of the PDP) reached the Delhi on Tuesday evening.
These ministers who visited AIIMS on Tuesday includes Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee chief Ghulam Ahmed Mir, accompanied by senior vice president Sham Lal Sharma and CLP leader Rigzin Zora . They enquired about the health of the Chief Minister from Mehbooba and stayed with the family for some time. They prayed for the early recovery of Mufti.
