‘Cabinet meetings turned into a joke’

SRINAGAR: National Conference (NC) on Tuesday expressed a note of alarm over the “unprecedented state of disarray and chaos” plaguing the state administration and said the cabinet meetings had been turned into a matter of ridicule and contempt to the chief minister’s authority as “key government departments remained abjectly directionless”.
In a statement, senior NC leader and former MLC, Bashir Ahmed Veeri said the chief minister was responsible for government’s “complete and total failure in dispensing even its most basic public duties”.
He criticised the CM for her “failure” to ensure that cabinet meetings are conducted in full quorum and said “the contempt shown towards the CM by her own cabinet was a shocking indictment of her ineffective leadership”.
