Bhim Singh calls for communal harmony, urges Governor to dismiss Govt. : Calls on NYC Volunteers to express solidarity

While addressing a press conference in Srinagar (Kashmir), Prof.Bhim Singh urged President of India to advice J&K Governor to dismiss the present government and impose Governor Rule to save the situation from going out of control. He said that the people of J&K have remained committed to secularism for centuries and they are not for any violence for conflict. He accused the state government for the present chaos and anarchy and claimed BJP for the present mess. He said both the coalition partners wanted the Assembly session to be diverted from the real issues including corruption, communalism, delimitation, rehabilitation of Jammu Migrants, return and rehabilitation of Kashmiri Migrants, the comprehensive rehabilitation of 15 lacs refugees from POK & Pak and several other issues being faced by the people of Jammu Pradesh.

Prof.Bhim Singh said that the present government has failed to enforce the state laws including legal ban on cow slaughter. He said that the BJP instigated the whole issue by filing a writ petition the J&K High Court and the PDP filed a counter petition in Srinagar only to add fuel to the fire.

Prof.Bhim Singh appealed to the people of J&K, particularly the youth to ensure that the brotherhood is not disturbed and the enemies of the people and foreign powers do not try to sabotage peace in the country.

Prof.Bhim Singh said that bandh call by Panthers Party in Jammu Pradesh was to draw the attention of the Central leadership that the people of Jammu shall no longer be allowed to be treated as slaves.

About the resolution of the present situation, Prof.Bhim Singh demanded Governor Rule without delay. Dissolution of the Assembly so that fresh election may be held to enable the people to elect the government on their choice to strengthen peace and brotherhood.

Prof.Bhim Singh also visited the NYC volunteers who have been sitting on hunger strike for the past 40 days in Pratap Park, Srinagar demanding jobs/work as was the commitment of the state. The leaders of the NYC volunteers welcomed Prof.Bhim Singh and Panthers Party senior leaders from Kashmir.

The senior Panthers Party leaders including Vice President, Masood Andrabi, Provincial President, Farooq Ahmed Dar, State Secretary, Sewa Singh Bali, several district presidents and office bearers accompanied Prof.Bhim Singh. Prof.Bhim Singh also expressed gratitude to the people of Jammu for their support to the ‘bandh’ in Jammu today.
