J&K Congress bankruptcy exposed Panthers ‘drop outs’ cannot save Congress

Shri Bansi Lal Sharma, Advocate, Advisor, J&K National Panthers Party and Spokesman of the party has expressed no surprise on the fact that State Congress has exposed itself as a bankrupt political outfit in J&K which is evident that Panthers ‘drop outs’ are being decorated in the sinking ship of the Congress party in the state.

Shri Sharma said that the Panthers Party activists should feel proud of the fact that Panthers Party is considered as a heavier stone than the Congress or BJP in the state. He further questioned the credibility of the State Congress leaders who have been thrashed out during the Lok Sabha elections to beat their drums with the help of ‘drop outs’ of the Panthers Party.

Shri Sharma, however, congratulated the Panthers Party leadership for raising the party’s moral and credibility to the indefinite heights at a time when the state is passing through a serious political crisis following a vertical division in the rank and files of the ruling parties in the state. He said that the Congress has demonstrated its bankruptcy to the full view of the political spectrum prevailing in the state. Mr Sharma said that the Panthers Party has become an ocean and it makes a no difference if its enemies shall take a drop or a few drops out of this ocean.         

Mr. Sharma also appealed the party leadership to announce the candidates for all the 37 constituencies in Jammu Pradesh and for all the rest of the Assembly seats in Kashmir and Ladakh.  



NPP Supremo’s protest letter to Kerry Asks US to tame Israel in Gaza, Palestine

Prof.Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of National Panthers Party & Member of National Integration Council, besides, Chairman of Indo-Palestine Friendship Society dashed a strong letter to Mr. John Kerry, US Secretary of State on visit to India demanding immediate action of the US to rein in Israel so that the genocide of the Palestinians in Gaza shall stop forthwith. In his letter, the Panthers Party Supremo accused the US for supporting Israel in its misdeeds and barbaric aggression against the people in Gaza, Palestine. Prof.Bhim Singh reminded the Foreign Minister of the US that Oslo agreements were finalized in the White House on 13th September, 1993 in the presence of the then US President, Bill Clinton assuring statehood to Palestine by 1996. Both the leaders namely Prime Minister of Israel, Yitzhak Rabin and Palestinian leader, Yasir Arafat had put in their signatures on the agreement in the presence of the US President.

Prof.Bhim Singh also reminded the US President, Mr. Barack Hussein Obama that Israel violated the agreement and has trashed it into the dustbin of history. He said that Israel had agreed in the presence of US President that the commands of resolutions 242, 338 asking Israel to withdraw from all Arab occupied territories shall be implemented. Instead, says Prof.Bhim Singh, Israel has started genocide of the Palestinians in full view of the whole world and the United Nations itself has failed to act in the spirit of the UN Charter.

Prof.Bhim Singh sought US intervention without delay in his letter addressed to Secretary of State, Mr. John Kerry. The letter is reproduced for the information as below;
   “It was expected that the US shall put its efforts to defuse the tension that has arisen following the barbaric bombing by Israel on Gaza, Palestine resulting into genocide and massacre of hundreds of Palestinians including women, children and the old. Instead the Obama administration has declared that the US shall continue its support and arms aid to Israel.

You have been in India for the past three days yet you have chosen to condemn barbaric bombardment killing hundreds of innocent Palestinians in Gaza by Israel. I hope the United States remembers that it was in Washington DC on 13th September, 1993 when US President Bill Clinton hosted a grand feast at Presidential House and witnessed the signing of an accord by the PLO Chief Yasir Arafat and Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin which declared, among so many things, that Palestine shall be granted statehood by 1996. In the meantime all the issues pertaining to Jerusalem, Palestinian refugees, Israeli settlements, security and borders would be settled permanently. The entire responsibility was taken by the US President in this regard.

The principles of the Oslo Accords I & II strictly provided that all Israeli forces from Gaza and West Bank shall be withdrawn no later than May 1996.

This was also decided that for the transitional period not exceeding five years all issues shall be settled permanently on the basis of UN Security Council Resolutions 242, 338 among others.
I would like to remind the United States of America that Israel did not care to respect this agreement and literally violated the principles of the accords. This is evident that Yasir Arafat was confined to the second floor of his Ram Allah headquarters. The allegation that he was given slow poisoning has never been denied by Israel or by the United States. His death created a vacuum in the political horizon of Palestine.

It is unfortunate that Israel never respected its own agreements and violated principles of accords whereas the United States and the entire western world continued its support to the usurper of the land of Palestine and the Arab countries.

Since you are visiting India, the Panthers Party feels its duty rather obligation to bring these hard facts to your notice so that the people of the United States may realize that the people of India stand with the people of Palestine and hope and trust that the President of the US Mr. Barack Hussein Obama shall give first priority for the implementation of the mission which his predecessor, President Bill Clinton launched in 1993.

I know the US is under Zionist pressure for the reasons best known to the White House and the people all over the world. Yet this is in the interest for the world peace and human dignity that the United States of America upholds the principles of mutual existence and puts its efforts for a genuine peace all over the world especially in Middle-East today. “

‘Kaushar Nag’ incident, failure of State Govt. Governor Rule can only save Kashmir from further destruction

Prof.Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of National Panthers has expressed shock on the grave incident of ‘Kaushar Nag Yatra’ stopped by the State government under the excuse of maintaining law and order in the Valley. The NPP Supremo praised the residents of Kashmir for their high spirit of tolerance and secular ethos as the Kashmiries have been practicing the tolerance of composite culture for centuries. He said that there are three main Hindu religious activities in Kashmir which include the world-known Amarnath Yatra, festival of Kheer Bhawani and the well-known Kaushar Nag yatra. He attributed prays to Kashmiri Muslim brethren for their effective and active cooperation to make these three non-Muslim events big and memorable events each year.

Prof.Bhim Singh said that Kashmiri Muslims respected the religious sentiments of the non-Muslims, both the Hindus and the Sikhs.

He regretted that some sacrilegious incidents were reported from Udhampur parliamentary constituency around Eid and now Kaushar Nag yatra was interrupted by the State government which clearly shows that the State government is playing in the hands of those who would like to create a divide among the people in the Valley and in Jammu Pradesh with an intention to add to the vote-banks of a particular group of partitions both in the Valley and in Jammu Pradesh.

Prof.Bhim Singh appealed to the people of Kashmir to demonstrate their courage to defy the government and escort Kaushar Nag yatra to the lake with dignity and Kashmiri pride.

He also urged Governor, Shri N.N. Vohra that this is the high time to dismiss the conflict-torn government, impose Governor Rule and go for free and fair elections by involving the Kashmiri youth and the people in the process.
