All Jammu and Kashmir Panchayat Conference (AJKPC) today hailed the Union government's decision for setting up an Indian Institute of Management (IIM) in the winter capital of the state.
We welcome the decision of the Union government headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi wherein the cabinet approved the establishment of an IIM in Jammu from the current academic year (2016-17), and approval of Rs 100 crore for modernisation of infrastructure of NIT in Srinagar, president AJKPC Anil Sharma said.
Sharma criticised former chief minister Omar Abdullah for "opposing IIM in Jammu" and alleged that he was "creating a gap between the two regions of the state for petty politics".
Omar had yesterday termed as "blatant partisan politics" the Centre's decision to set up an IIM in Jammu and hit out at Mehbooba, saying she had sold her soul to remain in power.
"Jammu gets the IIT & gets the IIM also. Where have all those voices that called for balanced regional development in J-K disappeared?" he had tweeted.
