Prof. Bhim Singh said that entire political system has sunk deep into the Jhelum and the Chenab and the present leadership around the state has no capacity, strength or commitment to invoke political morality in the state.  It is only Panthers Party and some individuals who are committed to morality and rule of truth.

NPP Supremo urges J&K Governor to dissolve J&K Assembly which is breathing on oxygen

Prof.Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of NPP has urged Shri N.N. Vohra, the Governor of J&K to close the doors of so-called negotiation with PDP and BJP in J&K begging them to wear the power crown in J&K so that the loot and anti-national agenda of handful of enemies of the country is allowed to flourish in the state.

          Prof.Bhim Singh reminded the J&K Governor that he is authorized by the State Constitution under Section 53 to dismantle the State Assembly in case there is no possibility of setting up a reasonable government of a party or parties which have unequivocal commitment to the Constitution of India to uphold national unity and its integrity. He said that the two parties namely PDP and BJP are poles apart in action and in their manifestos where they had sworn in before the Chief Election Commission of India to uphold the national unity, integrity and its commitment to national integration. The NPP Supremo said that Prime Minister Modi is more interested in power for his party than for the unity and integrity of the country. He is more passionate to protect saffronism than secularism and this was a national tragedy that Prime Minister Modi sacrificed the national commitment of his party for integration of J&K with the rest of the country. He said that Prime Minister Modi has forgotten that Article 370 is poisonous pill in the heart of the Indian Constitution which has kept J&K away from the rest of the country. He questioned the BJP’s role in J&K which is no less than those who were responsible for creating communal and sectarian conflict in the country.

NPP Supremo accused PM Modi for siding with the undesirable forces in J&K just for power least realizing that his alliance for power with PDP or NC is more dangerous than the ISI sabotage in J&K. He said PM Modi and his advisors have no idea about the situation prevailing in J&K nor they have any knowledge of the historical background vis-a-vis the Accession of the State with the rest of the country. He asked, does PM know the intriguing language used in Article 370?  Does he know the Article 370 collapsed on August 20, 1952 when so called state Constituent Assembly abolished Monarchy in the State? Does he know that J&K was not merged in the Union of India when all states joined the Union of India by 26thJanuary, 1950?  Does the PM know why J&K was not merged in the Union of India in 1950 with others states? Does he know that Article 370 turned dead on August 20, 1952 when the monarchy was abolished and Dr. Karan Singh was re-designated as Sadre-Riyasat from his status of ‘the Regent of the state’?. Does PM know that the Parliament he represents has no authority/power/jurisdiction to make any law vis-a-vis Jammu and Kashmir? Prof.Bhim Singh called on the Prime Minister and his team to find out the answers to these questions before he finally takes a dig in the politics of Jammu and Kashmir. 

Prof.Bhim Singh said that the Prime Minister owes a responsibility to answer why no government could be formed in more than two months in J&K? And why the Governor was forced to shut his pen to dismiss the State Assembly and go for fresh polls. He accused both the Congress and the NC leaders for shutting their ears and wrapping their eyes so that they see no evil and hear no evil. NPP Supremo blamed RSS to try to inflame communal passion in the country by trying to create vertical division in the society so that their dream of Hindutva rule is realized.

Prof.Bhim Singh expressed serious concern on the silence of national newspapers and media in the country to impose undeclared ban on the political situation and the activities of the nationalist political parties and the people. He accused Modi government for silencing the national media from reporting the facts and happenings in J&K. This is worst than emergency which people of J&K have been facing so that none shall, in the rest of the country, no the actual state of affairs and the truth vis-à-vis the situation in the state. BJP is lust for power in Kashmir can endanger the walls of National Integration.
