Bhim Singh meets CEC, demands re-poll in Udhampur Parliamentary Constituency in the interest of democracy

Prof.Bhim Singh, Panthers Party candidate from Udhampur Parliamentary Constituency this morning had 30-minutes meeting with Shri V.S. Sampath, the Chief Election Commissioner at Nirvachan Sadan, New Delhi and submitted a petition to the CEC urging re-poll in the entire Parliamentary Constituency for the reasons that the poll held on 17th April, 2014 was vitiated with rigging, fraud and EVM manipulation by the Congress and BJP candidates supported and abetted by Shri Omar Abdullah, the Chief Minister of J&K. Prof.Bhim Singh informed the CEC that Gulabgarh Assembly segment recorded 82% of poll which was a total fraud as almost all the male members had migrated to Punjab and Himachal Pradesh as they usually do in the month of April & May to seek work in the adjoining states. He also presented press clippings of local and national newspapers which have published stories on the rigging. He informed the CEC that almost all the 38 polling stations in Marwah Dachchan (Gulabgarh) were snatched by the local police officers and carried in helicopters which reached the office of Returning Officer after four days. The EVMs were taken away by the police leaving polling officers behind.

            Prof.Bhim Singh said that same thing happened with the EVMs which were used in Gulabgarh for recording votes. Some of the EVMs were taken to Rajouri District and then brought to Kathua after four days. This electoral crime was repeated by the Govt. of J&K after 26 years. In 1988, the Govt. of J&K headed by Dr. Farooq Abdullah joined by Shri Ghulam Nabi Azad the then General Secretary-AICC had manipulated and rigged the polls which remained on record. Prof.Bhim Singh had won by 32,000 votes in 1988 bye-election in the same parliamentary constituency still he was declared defeated by the power that be.

            Prof.Bhim Singh also presented a book on, ‘Murder of Democracy in J&K’ to the CEC which has carried the details on the murder of democracy by the Congress and the National Conference in 1988. The High Court Judge, Justice K.K. Gupta on an election petition filed by Prof.Bhim Singh had quashed the election by holding the election result as void. Since the Lok Sabha had dissolved by the day judgment was delivered on 15.10.1992, four years after the filing the election petition. The relevant Lok Sabha stood dissolved and replaced by this way.

            Prof.Bhim Singh urged the CEC to treat his petition as a challenge to the validity of polls held on 17th April, 2014 in Udhampur parliamentary election. He urged the CEC to issue notice to the main contenders namely, Shri Ghulam Nabi Azad (Congress) and Dr. Jitendra Singh (BJP).

            Prof.Bhim Singh urged the CEC that rigging could be checked to some extent if the voters identity cards issued by the Election Commission of India are retained by the Presiding Officer at the polling station till the counting is over. He informed CEC that hundreds of dead persons in the hills of Gulabgarh, Marwah Dachchan, Padar, Bani and Banihal have cast their votes which should be verified from the record in the interest of democracy and rule of law.

            Prof.Bhim Singh said that he has been fighting against electoral fraud committed by the power that be in Delhi and Srinagar which may prove counter productive for national integration and country’s unity if remained unchecked.

            The petition to the CEC attached.

Chelameswar today reissued notice to the Union Defence Secretary, Chief of the Army Staff, Comptroller General Defence Accounts on a contempt petition filed by 70 Army porters titled as Isher Singh & Ors. Vs. Union of India & Ors. for having deliberately failed to regularize their services following the order of the Supreme Court dated 14.05.2013. The Supreme Court, therefore, in the facts and circumstances of the instant case where members of the respondent Union have been employed in terms of the Regulations and have been consistently engaged in service for the past thirty to forty years, of course with short breaks, we feel, the Union of India would consider enacting an appropriate regulation/scheme for absorption and regularization of the services of the casual workers engaged by the BRO for execution of its ongoing projects.

Prof.Bhim Singh who appeared for the Army porters argued that the Ministry of Defence had deliberately failed to implement the order of the Supreme Court in which Supreme Court had directed the Union of India and Ministry of Defence to regularize the services of nearly 70 Army porters working in Nowshera Sector for the past 15 to 20 years as daily wagers.

Prof.Bhim Singh submitted that the Union of India and Ministry of Defence have not cared to file an appropriate counter in spite of the notice issued to the alleged contemnors.

The court after hearing both the sides directed the respondents to file an appropriate and proper counter in this regard.

Prof.Bhim Singh was assisted by Mr. B.S. Billowria and Mr. D.K. Garg, Advocates.
