Modi Govt’s another bluff on J&K Why meet in Bangkok, not in Lahore or Delhi

“The so-called ‘sudden breakthrough talks’ between the National Security Advisors of India and Pakistan in Bangkok (Thailand) to discuss terror and Jammu and Kashmir, as they stated, deserves urgent attention of all those who have faith in Indian Constitution and its foreign policy that J&K is integral Constituent of the Union of India. The so-called engagement between Indian Security Advisor, Mr. Ajit Doval and Pakistani counterpart, Mr.Nasir Janjua in Bangkok for four hours deserves urgent and immediate attention of all the nationalist political parties and those who have been looking after Indo-Pak relations. The meeting held in Bangkok was a hijack of the agenda from Tashkent (Russia) to Thailand which has been breathing under the shadow of the USA. There is an urgent need for the political parties to persuade Prime Minister Narendra Modi to hold and urgent meeting of National Integration Council to solicit the views of the national leadership across the country on the India’s national unity and integrity with a clear message that J&K (whole of it), has been and is, shall be an integral part of the Indian Union. This is supported by the history and the accession of the State with the Union in 1947 as was the case of nearly 556 states which form Union of India today”. This was the statement made by Prof.Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of National Panthers Party today seeking urgent meeting of the NIC and open debate on the final resolution on the fate of Gilgit-Baltistan (28,000 sq. miles under illegal occupation of Pakistan since 1948) and what is known as POK from Muzaffrabad to Mirpur (4600 sq. miles), which was occupied by Pakistan after Maharaja Hari Singh of J&K had signed the Instrument of Accession with the Union of India on 26th October, 1947.

          Prof.Bhim Singh said that it was Pakistan which violated the resolution of the Security Council (UN) which had clearly directed to hold plebiscite after Pakistan withdrew from all occupied areas. This resolution was passed by Security Council of UN on 13th January, 1948. Pakistan defied the UN Resolution and consolidated its military occupation of the occupied areas. Pakistan, instead of implementing Security Council direction, attacked India in 1965 and the consequences are on record.

          Prof.Bhim Singh said that since Pakistan has defied the Security Council resolution and has been defying the resolutions of the Security Council since 1948. He said it was Anglo-American Bloc which has been supporting Pakistan against the resolutions of the Security Council with a clear intention to dissect J&K from the Indian Union and create a military hedgemony in the area to keep a permanent watch on China.

          Prof.Bhim Singh expressed shock that the Congress which has been ruling this country for nearly 40 years has been playing bluff with the people of the country and those living in J&K. The Congress has been responsible for the present mess in J&K and its leadership cannot be forgiven for the blunders it has been committing vis-à-vis J&K. He said that Mr. Lal Bahadur Shastri and Mrs. Gandhi were the only Congress Prime Ministers who had clear intention to consolidate the unity between J&K with the rest of the country. He said that Indian Parliament failed to discharge its duty to protect the national interest by amending Article 370 which became irrelevant and infructuous after monarchy was abolished vis-à-vis J&K on 20th August, 1952.

          Prof.Bhim Singh said that Congress, the Communist Party and some other vested interests have been misleading the nation vis-à-vis the accession of J&K with the rest of the country. After the monarchy was abolished Article 370 become irrelevant and turned infructuous. Why the political leadership has been keeping quiet and why the Parliament of India is playing hide and seek with the people of this great country of which J&K is integral, everlasting and irrevocable part. Why Modi government has chosen Bangkok to talk to Pakistan on J&K. Let Modi government and other national political parties come out straight to tell us, the people of J&K, the integral Constituent of the Union of India as to why Modi government has chosen to talk on J&K in a foreign country with Pakistan? Is Modi government trying to play gimmick with the people of this country knowing well that people of J&K had chosen India with their open mind, heart and soul?
