‘Twin states’ in J&K only way out To end discrimination, chaos & imbalances

“To hold urgent Assembly elections in J&K with a clear message to end discrimination at all levels and end the chapter of imbalances; social, political or economic which has been predominantly witnessed in J&K since 1947.” This announcement was made this morning by Prof.Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of J&K National Panthers Party who has devoted 56 years of his life from school days till this day when he is continuing the battle for justice and for end of all forms of discrimination at all political platforms as well as before the Supreme Court of India.

Prof.Bhim Singh called on the people of all walks of life in the State of J&K to understand that justice shall only be ensured to the people living in different regions of the state, Ladakh, Kashmir Valley and Jammu Pradesh. He said that the state was floated in 1846 by Maharaja Gulab Singh under circumstances which were totally different in 1947 when Maharaja Hari Singh voluntarily decided to join the Union of India along with other 557 states in the Indian continent. Prof.Bhim Singh regretted that the Indian leaders ignored the call of Mahatma Gandhi on partition of India. The biggest blunder committed by the leaders of India by extending Monarchy in J&K. Had Gandhi lived till 26th January, 1950, there could have been no Jammu and Kashmir treachery as he would have never allowed anarchy continuation of Monarchy in J&K. Had J&K been merged like other 557 states of India with the Union of India the so-called problem (issue) of J&K would have never stirred the nation for 100 years, as on today.

Prof.Bhim Singh said that it was Shyama Prasad Mukherjee who dared in 1951 walk over to J&K from Pathankote to Kathua (J&K) by defying the state to enter J&K with a permit. Prof.Bhim Singh accused BJP leadership in the country which claims to be in the foot-steps of Praja Parishad (founded by Pt.Prem Nath Dogra for complete merger of J&K with the rest of the country), which betrayed the people of the country and surrendered before the communal, sectarian and anti-national leadership of Kashmir just to share in loot and power in J&K. He said that the BJP is neither Jan Sangh nor followed of Praja Parishad which is evident from the record that it joined hands with PDP, a Kashmir-based party which believed in the old Kashmiri dogma to rule Jammu and the Dogras. The BJP has betrayed the people of Jammu which is evident from the eight months old government they participated for a joint loot under the leadership of PDP.

Prof.Bhim Singh said that the Panthers Party is the only living political philosophy which can provide justice, equity, equality and end all forms of discrimination in the state. The National Conference movement under leadership of Sheikh Abdullah to demolish ‘Treaty of Amrisar’, 1846 has become a scientific reality and time has come when J&K should be reorganized by establishing ‘twin states’; Kashmir Ghati State and Jammu State. The Treaty of Amritsar is no longer relevant after J&K merged with the Union of India by the signatures of the then Maharaja of J&K, Hari Singh in 1947. Ladakh region which was annexed under the leadership of General Zorawar Singh by 1842 and affiliated with Jammu Pradesh should be given a choice between Kashmir Ghati State and Jammu State. The Ladakhies if choose to be adopted as Union Territory, their choice should be respected. Gilgit and Baltistan which link close to Ladakh shall be declared as part and parcel of Ladakh region after the liberation of Gilgit-Baltistan.

Prof.Bhim Singh said that a convention shall be held soon in February with the participation of the social and political representatives from all regions to give a scientific shape to this proposition. He said that the two states shall continue as ‘twin states’ with separate provincial governments but with one High Court and one Governor. This shall be done after a consensus of the people of the three regions.

Prof.Bhim Singh declared that he shall constitute a committee of social and political representatives irrespective of their political affiliations to mobilize the people’s opinion in support of this movement for reorganization of J&K.
