Indian electorates shall not expect any extremist

Bhim Singh asks Hurriyat to join poll battle

 Addressing a press conference in Srinagar (Kashmir) today, Prof. Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of National Panthers Party & Member of National Integration Council has called on the Hurriyat Conference leaders to join poll battle so that the most neglected, suppressed and oppressed people of J&K could be represented genuinely in the Parliament. The NPP Supremo also appealed the angry youth of Kashmir the support the Panthers Party candidates in the Lok Sabha election because it is only Panthers Party which represents the aspirations of the youth in particular which is evident from the fact that Panthers Party alone has been fighting from the streets to the legislature and Legislature to the Supreme Court for the justice and equity to the suffering people of J&K. Prof.Bhim Singh described Panthers Party as a change (vikalp) and the people wants change so that they can also share the fruits of democracy.

The NPP leader told the media persons that is Panthers Party which has been fighting for the youth detained illegally in jails and the new recruits who are being paid only half of the salary. He said that Panthers Party has moved the Supreme Court against the half salary ordinance. The case shall be heard in Supreme Court on 31st March, 2014. He said that is the only Panthers Party which has been fighting against the brutal killing and autocratic detention of the youth which is evident from the case of Faizan, a 12 years old student in Srinagar. He said that Kashmir should be grateful to Faizan because of his case that Govt. of J&K had to accept Supreme Court decision for the implementation of Juvenile Act. Prof.Bhim Singh demanded release of all the juveniles (minors) from the judicial custody as the Govt. has to constitute Juvenile Boards, Juvenile Homes as directed in Faizan’s case. He said the Supreme Court had issued direction that a case for the compensation of illegal arrest of Faizan should be filed in Srinagar Court for appropriate compensation.

Prof.Bhim Singh also wished good health for the Jamat leader, Ali Shah Geelani saying that Shri Geelani sahib and Shri Abdul Ghani Lone have shared the same bench in the Legislative Assembly in 77.      

Prof.Bhim Singh reminded the people of J&K that Panthers Party is also fighting for the regularization of all SPOs, contractual employees and casual labourers who have completed one year as a casual wager. Prof.Bhim Singh declared the Panthers Party shall contest five Lok Sabha seats out of six. He said the Panthers Party may not contest in Ladakh. Panthers Party has already declared two candidates from Udhampur Parliamentary Constituency (Prof. Bhim Singh) and Baramullah Parliamentary Consttieuncy (Syed Mohd. Rafiq Shah, MLC). He regretted that NC and Congress have divided the state on communal lines. National Party like Indian National Congress has surrendered all the three seats in the Valley to NC whereas INC remains in the fray in Jammu Pradesh only. This was a communal divide of the state by the Congress and NC. He said Panthers Party is bound to open its account in the Indian Parliament this election. In a reply to a question the Panthers Party Supremo maintained that neither Rahul Gandhi nor Narendra Modi shall be Prime Minister of India as the great people of India shall not accept any extremist. He prophesied that the next Prime Minister in India shall be from a regional party as BJP shall not cross 200 and Congress shall remain below 100.

          The prominent M/s. Farooq Ahmed Dar, Provincial President, Syed Mohd. Rafiq Shah, MLC, Masood Indrabi, Vice President, Maqbool Malik, State Secretary were also sitting in the press conference.
