70th J&K Accession’s Anniversary with UOI shall be celebrated from Kanyakumari to Kashmir on 27th Oct.

 Prof.Bhim Singh, Founder of National Panthers Party and Sr. Advocate in the Supreme Court of India declared in an emergency committee meeting in New Delhi today that J&K National Panthers Party shall organize massive celebration on the 70th Anniversary of J&K Accession with the Union of India from Kanyakumari to Kashmir. Prof.Bhim Singh said that Maharaja Hari Singh signed the Instrument of Accession on 26th October, 1947 which was accepted on 27th October, 1947 by the then Governor-General of India, Lord Mountbatten.

          Prof.Bhim Singh said that the Accession signed by Maharaja Hari Singh is final, irrevocable and J&K acceded to the Union of India as per Act of British Parliament of of 1946. This Act provided that the rulers of the respective states of India under British Rule were only competent authority to sign the Instrument of Accession and nobody else. 576 states including J&K signed the Instruments of Accession with the Union of India including the State of J&K. Prof.Bhim Singh regretted that J&K was not included by the Constituent Assembly among the States which acceded to the Union of India. He said that the blunder committed by the Constituent Assembly had no legal affect on the nature of the accession. All those states (576) which signed the Instruments of Accession including J&K had become part and parcel (legitimate partners) of the Union of India.

          The so-called Constituent Assembly of J&K which was illegally floated in J&K had no relevance in the International Law and was totally void and against the letter and spirit of British Act of Parliament. This was the blunder committed by the then Govt. of India headed by the Congress Party which allowed the creation of a Constituent Assembly in J&K. Prof.Bhim Singh said that the Constituent Assembly of J&K had no legitimacy to take a decision on the legitimacy of J&K Accession with the Union of India signed by the ruler of J&K. Maharaja’s continuation as Monarch of J&K by the Constituent Assembly was highly provocative which was not accepted by the Maharaja as he himself left J&K on 5th March, 1948 and remained in exile in Bombay till his death in 1961.

          Prof.Bhim Singh that insertion of Article 370 amounted to a constitutional fraud with the people of J&K as they were deprived to share/take benefit of the fundamental rights/human rights at par with the citizens of India by inserting temporary provision Article 370 in the Constitution depriving the people of J&K of their basic and fundamental rights like their co-citizens of the country. Prof.Bhim Singh said that Article 370 should have been amended by the Parliament long before so that the people of J&K could also enjoy the fundamental rights enshrined in the Constitution of India. The rulers of Kashmir were given all the shelter/protection under Article 370 to continue their loot and plundering the state and tones of money that poured into J&K from the Indian people under the name of so-called autonomy. Prof.Bhim Singh said it is temporary provision of Article 370 which has kept the people of J&K under dictatorial rule of couple of families of J&K who have been looting and ruling J&K. Over 65% people in J&K have remained illiterate till this day. Thousands are locked in jails even today under the false pretext. Article 35(A) inserted in the Indian Constitution has blocked the flow of facilities provided in the fundamental rights to the people of J&K. Who has inserted Article 35(A) in the Indian Constitution? This should have been investigated by the Parliament today which is supreme. Prof.Bhim Singh said that this is time that Parliament of India shall amend Article 370 without any delay to ensure that people of J&K may also share the fruits of democracy after 70 years of misrule in J&K by the leaders and the politicians who have been ruling the state of J&K from 1947 till this day.

          Prof.Bhim Singh said that Panthers Party shall celebrate the Accession Day with a clear message to the people of India that the people of J&K stand for accession with the Union of India. It is only the Parliament of India which has blocked entry of J&K into the Union of India by erecting a wall of Article 370 between the Union of India and State of J&K. Prof.Bhim Singh said that people of J&K should be granted all benefits of fundamental rights provided in the Constitution of India. He said that the people of J&K have been deprived of the privileges and benefits provided in the Constitution of India. Even tri-colour flag of India has been deprived to the people of J&K as Parliament has given people of J&K a separate flag of a political party in place of tri-colour flag. Prof.Bhim Singh said that he shall celebrate the Accession Day of J&K in Kanyakumari on 27th October, 2016.
