NC-Congress alliance in J&K is disaster for national security

NPP Supremo, Prof. Bhim Singh has accused NC-Congress government in J&K for turning the state into den of communalism, corruption and lawlessness. He urged the Governor, Shri N.N. Vohra to act fast to save the State from further death and destruction because of the non-governance of the government. Prof. Bhim Singh said that Congress and National Conference are fighting shamelessly only to grab more power and rob the state exchequer.
In a special communication to the Panthers Legislature Party, Prof. Bhim Singh hoped that the legislature party under the leadership of Shri Harsh Dev Singh shall oppose, expose in order to depose the present corrupt and inefficient government in the state. He charged the Omar government for importing terrorists holding Pakistani passports via Nepal which is a matter of record. He expressed surprise that the government of India is sitting silent on the grave situation rather abetting the Omar Government to import terrorists holding Pakistani passports into J&K via Nepal. He reminded the countrymen that Chief Minister Omar Abdullah had confessed on the floors of the Assembly on May 11, 2013 that 241 Pakistani terrorists have entered J&K via Nepal who were provided I-cards by the Govt. of J&K. He said that the so-called Surrender & Rehabilitation Policy framed in 2004 was completely reversed by Omar Abdullah’s government in 2010 by allowing the terrorists holding Pakistani passports to enter J&K via Nepal. This is grave violation by the Chief Minister.
Prof. Bhim Singh has demanded a case to be registered against the Chief Minister for abetting the terrorists to enter India. He reminded Dr. Manmohan Singh that Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru a great friend of Sheikh Mohd. Abdullah had to put Sheikh Abdullah in prison in 1953 after dismissing him from premiership of J&K. Dr. Manmohan Singh has no reason to defend Mr. Omar Abdullah only because he is patronize by some Congress leaders in Delhi. Nation is more important than the interest of an individual. This was the message of Nehru to Sheikh Abdullah.
Prof. Bhim Singh appealed to all the nationalists, secular and democratic parties in legislature in J&K to join hands with the Panthers Legislature Party inside the Assembly on 30th September, 2013 when the State Assembly shall meet.

SC asked UOI to file reply in two weeks on return of J&K terrorists via Nepal

Another Division Bench of the Supreme Court comprising JJ Mr. Justice K.S. Radhakrishnan and Mr. Justice A.K. Sikri allowed Union of India to file its counter in case of writ petition filed by J&K National Panthers Party challenging the Surrender & Rehabilitation Policy of J&K Govt. which allows the terrorists/militants to return to J&K. The Return & Rehabilitation Policy was reworked by Omar Abdullah’s government opening all routes for the Pakistan-based militants/terrorists to return to J&K through land and air routes. It has been admitted by the Chief Minister of J&K on the floors of Assembly dated 11.03.2013 that, “No ex-militant has returned through identified routes under aforesaid policy (return and rehabilitation) after fulfillment of conditions prescribed in the policy.” The Chief Minister had also admitted that, “241 ex-militants had returned ‘illegally’ to J&K via Nepal and other routes along with their family members.” Prof. Bhim Singh informed the court that the Chief Minister of J&K is adamant to bring all the terrorists back to J&K who had voluntarily opted for Pak-nationality and became citizens of Pakistan. He argued that under Article 9 of the Constitution of India no foreigner can be given India nationality without due procedure of law. He said that the Chief Minister on the floors of Assembly declared that, “My government will continue with its efforts for implementation of policy to facilitate return of youth desirous to return to the state under this policy.”

Prof. Bhim Singh submitted that J&K has been again on the boil and violence because of the activities of the terrorist-guests who are being imported to J&K via Nepal in utter violation of J&K by the State itself. He submitted that the terrorists are being paid better sums/free salaries than the fresh government employees. Prof. Bhim Singh also accused the Govt. of J&K for abetting the terrorists to enter into J&K by illegal and unconstitutional methods and means.

SC chides J&K for avoiding to file CS’s affidavit in Kishtwar riot case

Division Bench of the Supreme Court of India headed by Chief Justice of India, Justice P. Sathasivam with Justice Mrs. Ranjana Prakash Desai today described it as unfortunate that the Chief Secretary of J&K has not filed fresh affidavit as per direction of the Supreme Court in Kishtwar riot case. The J&K government Sr. Advocate Mr. Gaurav Pachnanda when tried to defend J&K, the Supreme Court snubbed him saying that he better advice the government of J&K to follow the rules and the directions of the court.

The Chief Justice, Justice P. Sathasivam when asked Prof. Bhim Singh, Sr. Advocate for the Panthers Party, he strongly opposed the State government for trying to defy the direction of the Supreme Court which during the last hearing had clearly instructed the Chief Secretary of J&K to file a fresh affidavit to explain Government’s decision to provide relief on different patron discriminating with the residents of J&K and the other citizens. The Chief Secretary of J&K had defined the residents of J&K as ‘State Subjects’ and those Indian citizens as ‘Non-State Subjects’.

Prof. Bhim Singh submitted that the Govt. of J&K has filed a highly objectionable affidavit in the name of Mr. Feroze Ahmad Sheikh, Additional Secretary General Administration Department affirming that, “The State of Jammu and Kashmir has a special status within the Union of India. The Constitution of India (as well as the constitutional scheme there under) do not apply in their entirely to the State of Jammu and Kashmir, but are subject to crtain limitations and exceptions.” Prof. Bhim Singh vehemently argued that the Govt. of J&K has literally challenged the Accession of the State with the rest of the country and the Hon’ble Supreme Court has to review the affidavit filed by the Govt. of J&K affirming that the Constitution of India is not applicable to J&K.

The Supreme Court expressed its annoyance and asks the Chief Secretary to file affidavit as the matter has to be answered by the Govt. of J&K and not by a Department. The court shall hear the case on 20th September, 2013.

Prof. Bhim Singh was assisted by M/s. B.S. Billowria, S.K. Badhopadhyay, Shiromani Yadav, P.V. Yogeshwaran, Advocates.
