Congress steps up campaign for rotational chief minister

Farooq angry over talk of chief minister's rotation

Jammu: A host of challenges await Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah who is expected to arrive here Wednesday after a nearly 10-day-long visit to Britain, party sources said Tuesday.

The National Conference leader had gone abroad to meet his mother on Christmas.

During his absence, a section of media reported on an alleged official communication of police hinting at an attempt by Health Minister Sham Lal Sharma of the Congress, an alliance partner of the National Conference government, to influence a probe into a land dispute.

The controversy took a serious turn when the minister stopped attending office after seeking an explanation on how the official communication was leaked.

The sources said Sharma had been eagerly awaiting the chief minister's return for early sorting out of the matter as Abdullah also holds the home portfolio.

The severe chill and shortage of water and power in the Kashmir Valley has also left people complaining about poor governance, they said.

Communist Party of India-Marxist leader Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami told a public meeting in Jammu Monday that "good governance under the current dispensation has become a distant dream".

The sources said that Abdullah would be visiting the Valley and would be there till the first week of January next year, attending to the problems of the people.
