Reorganization of J&K is the only way out for lasting peace & National Integration

Addressing a rally of political activists from different parts of the country at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi this afternoon, Prof.Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of J&K National Panthers Party & Member of National Integration Council advocated with strong note and compassion that the resolution of J&K lies in the reorganization of the state and reconstituting all the three regions namely, Ladakh-Gilgit, Kashmir Valley and Jammu Pradesh on the basis of geographical, cultural and ethnic basis to ensure that the citizens of India in J&K enjoy social, cultural and political freedom and also strengthen their cultural bonds as nature has entrusted in the people of each region since the establishment of each region. NPP Supremo has been advocating for the reorganization of J&K ever since the establishment of the Panthers Party in the state.

          Prof.Bhim Singh said that the leaders in J&K irrespective of their political affiliations have been acting as agents of political hawks since 1947. He said that Ladakh-Gilgit has its own cultural identity and entity and nature has confined them in a different situation in the Himalayas. The Kashmir Valley has its own identity and geographical recognition with its language and cultural unique entity. Kashmir’s merger was a unique contribution of the Dogra Maharaja Gulab Singh assisted by General Zorawar Singh with Jammu State (Muzaffrabad to Kishtwar) in 1942.

          Prof.Bhim Singh said that in 1947, hundred years after the Treaty of Amritsar signed in 1846, J&K was established by Maharaja Gulab Singh Kashmir and Ladakh (Gilgit) became parts of J&K. That India was reorganized and this process continued for years and still continuing. Gujarat later was divided into Gujarat and Maharashtra. Assam was divided into seven states. Punjab, Bihar and other states were also reorganized on the linguistic, cultural, geographical and other disciplines.

          Prof.Bhim Singh said that the situation in J&K could not be addressed for several factors. 28,000 sq. miles of India’s territory (Gilgit-Baltistan) is under Pakistan’s direct control. 4,500 sq.miles (Karakoram) of J&K’s territory is under the illegal occupation of China. Nearly 5,000 sq. miles is under Pak occupation, which Pak called as ‘Azad Kashmir’. China has been occupying nearly 20,000 sq. miles of J&K territory in the Ladakh region. Mathematically speaking India does not have even one-half of the territory of J&K which was established by the Dogras under their unique leadership of Maharaja Gulab Singh, General Zorawar Singh, General Baaz Singh and others.

          Prof.Bhim Singh accused the Delhi leadership, may it be Congress, Communist, Jan Sangh (BJP) or others for keeping the entire nation in dark about the history and geographical situation of the State of J&K that was founded by the great Dogras between 1817 and 1846.

          Prof.Bhim Singh called on the members of the Parliament and the political parties all over the country to initiate a debate/discussion on the socio-cultural and historical background of J&K so that the new generations shall understand the meaning and significance of J&K.

          Prof.Bhim Singh declared that he shall associate the intellectuals and the progressive youth leaders from all over the country to go around India with a message of national unity and integration. He said J&K is as an integral part of the Indian Union as is entire North-East (Assam and other states in the region). He said that the Parliament of India, unfortunately, has not been able to understand the political, social and historical roots of Indian nationalism vis-à-vis J&K, North-East and other regions which form lasting parts of India. Prof.Bhim Singh strongly advocated for the reorganization of J&K by establishing Ladakh-Baltistan as northern unit, Kashmir Valley and Jammu Pradesh as its integral constituents, so that the Ladakhies, Kashmiries and the Dogras shall enjoy their regional entity and identity.  

          Prof.Bhim Singh hoped that Prime Minister Modi shall try to understand the geography, the history and the social standards of the people of India from all over the country; Kashmir to Kanyakumari and Dwarka to Kohima (Nagaland). He said that the Panthers Party shall start this movement for integration of the country in April, 2016 from Kanyakumari to Kashmir and Nagaland to Gujarat. He invited all those who are interested in this movement, National Integration from the roots.

Dismiss present government in J&K to save national interest and unity

Prof. Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of NPP & Sr. Advocate of Supreme Court of India today urged President of India to use its exclusive constitutional power under Section 92 of J&K Constitution to dismiss the present J&K government in the national interest and for upholding unity, integrity and sovereignty of India without any delay. 

Prof.Bhim Singh said that PDP-BJP government is unconstitutional and has been functioning in total violation of the Constitution. He said that the security of the state stands threatened under the present government which has been openly hobnobbing with the anti-national elements thus causing threat to the unity and integrity of the state. 

Prof. Bhim Singh demanded immediate dismissal of the government, dissolution of the state Assembly and imposition of Governor Rule without any delay in accordance with the command of the state constitution and norms for national security.
