Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Saturday slammed television news channels for announcing the resignation of Pawan Kumar Bansal as the Union Railways Minister "hours" before he actually did so.
"So if Pawan Bansal only resigned after 8:30 (pm yesterday), how come channels were announcing that he had resigned hours earlier? Shoddy journalism?" Omar posted on twitter.

Omar said the TV channels should not have gone ahead with announcing Bansal`s resignation before he had submitted his resignation.
"You can say he`s been asked to resign or has decided to resign but he hasn`t actually resigned until he hands in that letter of resignation," he added.
