NEW DELHI: On April 28, 2013 , it was announced that Jammu and Kashmir governor N N Vohra   would get second term in the Jammu and Kashmir state , with the then President Pranab Mukherjee  renewing his lease over Srinagar Raj Bhavan for five more years at that time.  N.N. Vohra's term end in June, 2018. It is worth mentioning here that the although the governor holds office for a term of five years from the date on which he enters upon his Office, yet this term is subject to pleasure of president. The “doctrine of pleasure” has always been used to drop governors any time and thus, Governors have no security of tenure. Further, a governor can resign from the office by addressing resignation to President.


With few weeks remaining to complete his tenth year the curiosity is on who will be the new governor of the state. Any further extension to NN Vohra does not make any sense, according to ground zero voices as he has outlived his significance. And now accordingly the talk on who could be the new governor of Jammu and Kashmir state has gained momentum and curiosity is on.


According to the Kashmir News Bureau Former Commander of Srinagar based Chinar Corps Lieutenant General (Retired) Syed Ata Hasnain is tipped  to be among the favourites to be new Governor of Jammu & Kashmir. The retired general has won support from the people at helm in the centre and as such the decks seem to have been cleared in this regard.

According to legal experts it is not much heard that Governor term going beyond ten years in any state of India. The biggest positive in favour of General Hasnain is his legacy of connect with common masses. An outstanding officer, Gen Hasnain had, as General Officer Commanding in Jammu and Kashmir in 2010-2011, set an excellent example of right use with combination  of soft power with hard power.


There has been much talk of under utilization in crucial times, and one good example of under-utilisation of high-level talent is Lt Gen (Retd) Syed Ata Hasnain, who, many say, should have been the governor of Kashmir under the Modi dispensation or handling some important assignment to do with national security.

Raees Ahmad, a youth stated - “Kashmir is facing quite tough times currently and in this era of darkness and rampant bloodshed everywhere the urge to have a rationale person at the helm of post of Governor is need of times. The personality of General Ata Hasnain is best suited to tackle these tough circumstances as his conduct, experience and exuberance is much needed on ground to change things towards betterment.” The analytical kaleidoscope clearly suggests at this volatile juncture General Ata Hasnain is the best choice for Governor post in Jammu and Kashmir.

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court did not favour handing over the investigation into the rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl in Kathua from the crime branch of Jammu and Kashmir Police to the CBI as her father expressed satisfaction over the investigation carried out so far. "In the absence of any allegation, why should we enter into this as to who should investigate," a bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Mishra said, adding that it was "the primary duty of the state police to investigate a case".


The father expressed satisfaction with the probe conducted so far by the state police, while vehemently opposing the plea of senior advocate Bhim Singh and Delhi-based lawyer Anuja Kapur that the investigation be transferred to the CBI. "Be that as it may, we do not intend to enter into this sphere (transfer of case to CBI) at this stage," the bench said, noting the submission of the victim's father.


At the outset, the victim's counsel Indira Jaising, who mentioned the matter for an urgent hearing in the forenoon, said the "biological father" of the victim had no grievance with regard to the police probe. "We are not seeking transfer of investigation. The issue is that the atmosphere is not conducive (at Kathua) for fair trial and dispensation of justice," she said. "Investigation is almost complete. Charge sheet has been filed. They (police) may file a supplementary charge sheet. The father of the victim has no problem with the police investigation," she said.


"We do not want CBI investigation. I am the father. We are satisfied with the investigation. Every accused has been identified. DNA samples have been matched," the lawyer said, adding that she hailed the state police. Pertinently, The Jammu Bar Association and others had demanded transfer of the case to the CBI as they had no faith in the probe carried out by the crime branch.The crime branch submitted two charge sheets against eight people including an alleged juvenile for allegedly raping and murdering the girl in January this year.
