NPP Supremo urges Governor to declare J&K election null and void, hold afresh poll

Prof.Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of National Panthers Party and an expert on Electoral Laws has urged Shri N.N. Vohra, the Governor of J&K to use his extraordinary power conferred on him by the Constitution of J&K to declare the recently held election for J&K Assembly as null and void and issue a fresh Ordinance hold Assembly elections afresh in the interest of democracy, rule of law and to keep the faith of the electorates intact in democracy.

Prof.Bhim Singh said that there are several reasons to dismiss the recent polls;

i).       That the election was neither fair nor free as it was rigged by reprogramming the EVMs bought from public sector manufacturing units in Hyderabad without tenders.

ii).      That the EVMs were purchased exclusively for their use in J&K from Hyderabad and taken to Gujarat for preparing them to be rigged by manipulation. This matter was brought to the notice of the CEC who admitted that these EVMs were purchased from Hyderabad and processed in Ahmedabad.

In his queries dated 20th August, 2014, Prof.Bhim Singh had raised pertinent questions;         

1).      Why Gujarat manufacturers have been chosen for this purpose and that too for J&K which has a history of rigging elections and manipulation of EVMs? 15000 EVMs are being utilized for nearly 10,000 polling stations. 5000 extra EVMs could be utilized to manipulate the entire election.

2).      Who are these manufacturers/exporters of EVMs from Gujarat to J&K?

3).      Are the services of these Gujarat manufacturers are being utilized in other states like Maharashtra, Haryana and other during the forthcoming Assembly elections?

4).      Were these particular Gujarat manufacturers of EVMs were chosen/selected by a unilateral decision without inviting tenders as has been the policy to avoid corrupt practice?

5).      What is the guarantee that Gujarat EVMs shall not be misused or manipulated to rig polls to accomplish the dream of the Prime Minister to secure 44 + Assembly seats in J&K, knowing well that J&K has no appeal to the voters?

6).      The BJP in the normal times could not secure even one Assembly seat in 1983 when the JKNPP managed to get one seat against all odds created by the Congress Party.

7).      The JKNPP is strongly opposed to the use of EVMs at least in J&K so that the confidence and faith of the voters is not lost and the people could be involved in the democratic process in the state.

8).      The JKNPP would like to lodge its protest against the use of Gujarat made EVMs which have added fuel to the fire in the state as the rumour are high that these EVMs have already been charged/ rigged in favour of BJP candidates.

9).      This is high time that EVMs are dismantled from the electoral process as has been done by the most of the countries in the world. The EVMs have been adjudged as faulty and manipulative so dangerous for the largest democracy of the world.

iii).     The Election Commission of India admitted the facts but kept silence on the issue of purchase of EVMs without tenders.

iv).     That the results in the election have shown enormous variation of votes favouring BJP in Jammu Pradesh where BJP managed 25 out of 37 seats.

v).     Prof.Bhim Singh in his communication with the J&K Governor said that the percentage of voting pattern as shown in most of the constituencies situated on hills and jungles is unbelievable and impossible. This has been brought to the notice of Election Commission of India.

vi).     Finally no party has peoples mandate to form a government in J&K. Besides no two parties have the mandate to form a coalition government. For example National Conference stands for Greater Autonomy and PDP self rule as both of these slogans stand for the implementation of Dixon Plan to create an Islamic Republic of Greater Kashmir. On the other hand BJP claims to be a nationalist which stands for one Constitution, one flag and full integration with Union of India. Any combination shall be disastrous for the principles of natural justice, rule of law and democracy.

Prof.Bhim Singh has urged the Governor to exercise his power he has in his authority as a Governor of J&K to declare entire poll process as null and void. Impose Governor Rule in the state and hold election afresh under the supervision of all party Parliamentary Committee so that free and fair elections could be held in the interest of democracy and rule of law.

Prof.Bhim Singh said that this is also necessary in view of the judgment of the Supreme Court in Subramanium Swamy’s case dated 08.10.2013 where the court has held that ‘paper trail’ was an indispensable requirement of free and fair election. This election in J&K was held in defiance of this judgment. The court had held, “From the materials placed by both the sides, we are satisfied that the ‘paper trail’ is an indispensable requirement of free and fair elections. The confidence of the voters in the EVMs can be achieved only with the introduction of the ‘paper trail’. EVMs with VVPAT system ensure the accuracy of the voting system. With an intent to have fullest transparency in the system and to restore the confidence of the voters, it is necessary to set up EVMs with VVPAT system because vote is nothing but an act of expression which has immense importance in democratic system.”
