Memorandum to Hon’ble Shri Pranab Kumar Mukherjee, the President of India


Hon’ble President, Sir,

National Panthers Party (JKNPP) would like to take this liberty making the following submission for your kind consideration and follow up action in the interest of the security of the state and security of the citizens of India in the border state of J&K.

Hon’ble Sir, J&K has been in a state of anarchy ever since the present coalition government comprising BJP and PDP has taken over the reign of power in the state.

1.                 The two political parties have been working poles apart in seeking the advantage of the ruling parties to serve their respective interests in Kashmir Valley and Jammu Pradesh.

2.                 The PDP led by Mufti Mohd. Sayeed is engaged to address their constituency in Kashmir Valley by exploiting the people, particularly the youth, against India and encouraging the saboteurs of peace and harmony, allowing the people to raise banners of revolt against the Union of India, National Flag and the national interest.

3.                 The BJP on the other hand has been exploiting the people in Jammu Pradesh in the name of petty interest and exploiting the people to further communal divide created by the ruling parties during the election campaign.

4.                 That both the parties are, it appears, busy in promoting Oven Dixon Plan to divide Jammu Pradesh on communal lines to create situation favourable for Dixon Plan.

5.                 That the state has failed to defend the state interest and the national interest in the High Court with the result that on 16th July, 2015, a Division Bench of J&K High Court has given an unacceptable judgment by holding sovereignty of J&K Constitution over the Constitution of India and rejecting the doctrine of the supremacy of Parliament.

6.                 That AIIMS was declared for Jammu Pradesh in 2003 and now it is being shifted to Kashmir Valley which has angered the people of Jammu Pradesh and they have together chosen streets to settle the score and seek justice.

7.                 That 15 lacs refugees from Pak and POK have not been settled in 65 years and there is no hope under the present government to ensure comprehensive settlement of Pak and POK refugees.

8.                 That Jammu Migrants have been denied the relief ordered by the Supreme Court in a judgment delivered on 13th July, 2007 asking the state government and the Union to pay dues to the Jammu Migrants, mostly camping at Talwara, Reasi Districts of Jammu to the tune of Rs.21 crores. The Jammu Migrants have not been given relief at par with Kashmiri Migrants through both migrants were driven out of their homes by the terrorists during the militancy.

9.                 That the infiltration from across the international border and LoC has not been stopped for the reason that the Govt. of J&K has taken a miled view towards this situation rather the State government has been encouraging the anti-national elements to challenge the Constitution of India and even the Defence forces.

It is in this regard that the Panthers Party is making this protest in front of the Parliament urging Your Excellency for the intervention of President of India for urgent action vis-à-vis J&K. This is possible only by your intervention by invoking the authority invested in the President of India to amend Article 370 and powering Parliament of India to legislate on J&K. Article 35(A) is obnoxious, criminal attempt to sabotage national interest and has been introduced in violation of Article 370 itself. The Hon’ble President may be pleased to scrap Article 35(A), amend Article 370 and in the meantime authorized Governor of J&K to invoke Section 92 of J&K Constitution. The Governor should dismiss the present Assembly, promulgate Governor Rule and go for fresh elections to the Assembly so that free and fair polls may be held to give democracy and peace a chance in the state. It shall be in the interest of preserving Indian democracy in J&K as J&K was, is and shall be integral part of the Union of India. This is the mandate of the Constitution of India supported by the Constitution of J&K.

With warm regards,
