Sheila Dixit releases Second Edition of Bhim Singh’s book, ‘The Blunders and Way Out’ Bhim Singh calls it gift to younger generations

The book by Prof. Bhim Singh was released on the eve of the New Year (2014) by Mrs. Sheila Dixit, one of the most daring, foremost & forceful leaders of Indian National Congress who served Delhi flawlessly as its Chief Minister for three consecutive terms.
The book was released at the residence of the former Chief Minister, Smt. Sheila Dixit, 3, Motilal Nehru Marg, New Delhi in the presence of several noted social & political activists including Shri Subhash Goyal, Former President of Delhi University, Padamshree Mrs. Uma Sharma, noted world-famed Kathak Maestro, local media person, Mrs. Nasreen Hamid, Delhi Pradesh Panthers Party President, Mr. Rajiv Jolly Khosla, Mrs. Sudesh Dogra, Political Secretary-NPP, Mrs. Kamia Mulhotra, noted bolliwood actor, Sr. Harcharan Singh Josh, a prominent Congress leader and advocate, Mr. Rohit Pandey, former Secretary, SCBA and others.
‘The Blunders and Way Out’ is a strikingly original documentation of facts based on authentic & historical data placed in socio-political perspective. It exposes the ‘blunders’ committed by the leaders in Delhi and Kashmir ever since the heterogeneous State of J&K was created in 1846. The blunders committed by the national leaders–from Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru till date–have been depicted with clarity and visionary approach. The book has listed 47 blunders while dealing with Jammu and Kashmir. The blunders include the discriminatory resolutions of the Security Council and the failures of several noted leaders from different disciplines. The formation of unnatural union in 1846, arrests of leaders of J&K, silence of Indian leadership over occupation of POK,Gilgit & Mirpur find a space on the pages of this book.
The way out is strikingly useful for the intellectuals, the media and the parliamentarians which has come out with a fresh doctrine to amend Article 370 so as to empower Parliament to legislate in respect of Central Subjects in J&K.
The author has a unique distinction of having personally opened up channels of communication with several prominent leaders of both sides of J&K as well as with the high-profile policymakers of India and Pakistan. The book provides revealing insights into the thinking of the noted leaders of the troubled State of J&K, which was tragically divided in the aftermath of partition of India in 1947, following an invasion from Pakistan on October 19, 1947.
The author, a recognized specialist on J&K Affairs, has proposed a daring formula for the permanent settlement of LoC in J&K, which is a major dispute between India and Pakistan. “The dispute needs to be addressed with ‘human approach’ as ‘wars’ have failed to solve international conflicts in the world.” The book suggests a new roadmap to create a new era of peaceful co-existence between India and Pakistan. ‘Internal tension’ within J&K is to be resolved by ‘reorganization’ of the Indian State by introducing a federal structure by separation of powers; legislative, political and financial for each region; Ladakh, Kashmir and Jammu Pradesh without trifurcation. The author has made a scientific approach suggesting that this can be achieved by an amendment in the temporary provisions of Article 370 of the Indian Constitution. The book has focused on the ‘ABC’ of Jammu and Kashmir with an undaunted thought, forceful voice and fearless pen. Deserves attention!
Prof. Bhim Singh, the author of the book who spent more than eight years in prisons at different times calls the Second Edition of the book, ‘The Blunders and Way Out’ New Year (2014) gift to the people of India.

NPP extends New Year Greetings to all particularly to the youth & working class

Prof. Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of JKNPP and Member of National Integration Council who is also Sr. Executive Member of the Supreme Court Bar Association extended heartiest greetings to all countrymen from Kanyakumari to Kashmir and Dwarka to Imphal particularly to the youth, farmers, working class and the civil society with a hope and trust that 2014 shall bring a change in governance in the country at the Central & State levels so that the corrupt and authoritarian rulers shall be washed away with power of the ballot.

NPP Supremo in his message to the countrymen and the people residing in the State of J&K said that recently held Assembly elections has given a message straight to everyone in the country and even to those who have been talking of change through guns and bullets that, i). The two major national parties namely, Congress and BJP shall no longer rule the country if there is an alternative at regional or national level, ii). Secondly that the Ultimate Revolution (Change) is possible through the power of the ballot (ballot) and an oldest theory of Moutse Tung that power lies at the barrel (barrel) of gun has been ruled out in the Indian democracy (democracy).

Prof. Bhim Singh called on the youth to get ready for the battle of the ballot in 2014 to defeat the corrupt, communal, criminal, outdated and authoritarian individuals and the parties so that the new blood shall lead the State Legislatures and the Parliament.

NPP Supremo challenges interim report of justice Gandhi, calls it invalid

Prof. Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of National Panthers Party while talking to the media this morning called the so-called interim report of justice (retd.) R.C. Gandhi as a mirage which was prompted by the Chief Minister only to accommodate his Minister. He said the Kishtwar riot case is being heard by the Supreme Court on 7th January, 2014 and he will take up the matter.

He said that the interim report was totally invalid as it has neither been properly signed by justice (retd.) R.C. Gandhi nor it was presented before the Cabinet.  Even the Cabinet Ministers had no knowledge of such a report. The NPP Supremo called on the Governor to take appropriate cognizance in the matter and dismiss Omar Abdullah for playing fraud with the rule of law.

Prof. Bhim Singh also accused BJP for playing double standards vis-a-vis Article 370. BJP’s nominated premier called for a debate on the issue clearly indicating that he has no mind on the abrogation of the said Article.  BJP in Jammu has started beating about the bush to demand abrogation just for the damage control process.  The fact is that BJP and NC have been playing hide and seek with the people of J&K on the matter. The BJP did not mention a word on the issue when came to power in the Centre.  BJP has more than 150 MPs today in the Parliament who did not care even to bring a Bill on the fate of Article 370.  BJP is more confused on Article 370 than the Congress.  Both have been exploiting the people of J&K on the issue. Prof. Bhim Singh argued that the Panthers Party shall manage support of 300 MPs for the amendment in Article 370 so at to empower Parliament to legislate on Central issues vis-a-vis J&K even a Panthers Party shall have one member in the Parliament.

Prof. Bhim Singh called on youth and students to join, support Panthers Party which is the only voice of the depressed and suppressed people of J&K

NPP accused Congress, NC & BJP for neglecting Refugees of 1947, 1965, 1971 in Jammu

Addressing a public massive rally in Kerian and Gandyal (Kathua Distt.), Prof. Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of JKNPP and Member of National Integration Council made a scathing attack on the leadership of the national parties namely, Congress, BJP and National Conference for playing fraud with the people of Jammu Pradesh particularly the refugees of Pakistan, refugees of POK and the refugees from Chhamb and Deva-Batala who have been living a tragic life for the past 60 years. He said that the Panthers Party was formed in J&K to ensure that civil and political rights shall be ensured to the refugees from Pakistan (approximately 65000) who have not been given citizenship rights or right to vote even though three generations have been living in J&K. Besides, the refugees from POK (about 11 lacs) have not been given the refugee status nor they have been settled in 60 years by the NC-Congress combine. NPP Supremo mocked at BJP leaders who have been shedding crocodile tears for years but when they came to power in the Centre, the BJP followed the foot-sets of the Congress. It was BJP government in the Centre which inducted grandson of Sheikh Abdullah as a Central Minister.

Prof. Bhim Singh accused Congress for the grand betrayal of the people of Jammu. He pointed out that the Congress Govt. spent Rs. 5000 crores to build a railway tunnel from Qazigund to Banihal has no railway connection with the rest of the country. The Congress Govt. could not build a bridge to connect the Kerian-Gandyal with Kathua and did not care to spend Rs.10 crores for a bridge in Jathana where people have been living in utter disgrace and in wretched condition for 60 years. Kerian-Gandyal an area of 1600 acres is situated on the border of Punjab and is divided from Kathua District by the Ravi River to reach Kerian-Gandyal, the people have to cross over to the Punjab.

Other Panthers Party leaders who addressed the rally included Ms. Anita Thakur, General Secretary-JKNPP, Mr. Faqir Nath, ex-MLA & Provincial President, Mr. Ravinder Pathana, Distt. President, Kathua, Mr. Shanker Das Sarpanch & Secretary of Panchayat Empowerment Committee.

Prof. Bhim Singh with Panthers Party team have been on ‘Wake Up’ Jammu campaign for the past one week travelling in the far-flunged areas. The Panthers Party has declared reorganization of J&K as their agenda to ensure justice and equity to all the three regions of the State namely, Ladakh, Kashmir Valley and Jammu Pradesh.
