Supreme Court fixes 3 Feb. to hear case of implementation of Advocates Act in J&K

Supreme Court Division Bench headed by Chief Justice, Mr. Justice J.S. Khehar declared that the Supreme Court shall hear the writ petition filed by Prof.Bhim Singh, Sr. Advocate and Sr. Executive Member of the Supreme Court Bar Association seeking implementation of Advocates Act in J&K. Prof.Bhim Singh in his petition has urged the Supreme Court of India to issue direction to the Union of India to issue notification/order declaring that J&K shall have elected Bar Council of J&K as is applicable in all other states of the country. Prof.Bhim Singh while arguing the writ petition filed by him made emotional submission before the court that he is a Member of the Bar Council of J&K which is governed by the High Court Judges under the Chairmanship of the Chief Justice of J&K right since the application of the Act in J&K which amounts to discrimination with the Advocates of J&K.

          The counsel for the Bar Council of India had agreed before the Supreme Court to complete all formalities in this direction. Even draft Constitution was proposed by the Bar Council of India and after some amendments approved by the High Court of J&K.

          Prof.Bhim Singh expressed surprise that the Bar Council took a ‘U’ turn on the advice of the Union of India which submitted before the Supreme Court that situation to hold election for the Bar Council in J&K was not conducive. Arguing strongly Prof.Bhim Singh made a submission before the Supreme Court that the election to the Parliament and Assembly should also be postponed if situation to hold lawyers’ election is so bad. Prof.Bhim Singh argued strongly that he is Member of Bar Council of J&K which is presided over by the Chief Justice of J&K with the judges of J&K High Court as its member. Prof.Bhim Singh argued before the a division bench headed by the Chief Justice of India that the lawyers in J&K should not be denied their right to elect the Council for them as is done throughout the country in all other states.

          Chief Justice, Mr. Justice Jagdish Singh Khehar decided to hear the matter finally on 3rdFebruary, 2017. He told the counsel for the Bar Council that it shall be argued that day finally.

Scorching message from Kathua to the ailing political parties

Prof.Bhim Singh, Sr. Advocate & Supremo of National Panthers Party has expressed satisfaction and congratulated the civil society in Kathua District who dared taking a flag for justice and equity for the people against the sleeping politicians and sneezing politicians warning the political activists either to come on the streets plead the case of wretched of the earth or get lost. Prof.Bhim Singh appreciated the civil society in Kathua District which raised a banner of revolt against the ruling clique and warning the sleeping politicians to act or get lost into the dustbin of the history.

          Kashmir is under the clouds of nature where innocent people are suffering the wrath of nature. Snow, rains, thunder, hunger with no medicines or political activists raising a voice for justice to the wretched of earth in Kashmir. On the other hand there is no electricity/power, no medical treatment, no schools or offices working for the poor and the downtrodden. There is wrath of nature in Kashmir Valley and terror caused by the sluggish treatment of the failed government in Jammu Province. Ladakh is out of discussion. Nobody can imagine the pain and the sufferings of the people in Kargil and Leh. This is democracy and the so-called rule of law. Thanks to the special status which is being enjoyed by the State of J&K under special constitutional mandate granted to J&K under Article 370.

          Prof.Bhim Singh congratulated the people of Kathua where raised the banner of revolt where the people blocked Jammu-Pathankote Highway as a mark of protest against the Power Development Department in the government run by RSS-PDP combine in J&K. Prof.Bhim Singh has been strongly arguing before the Supreme Court of India seeking justice so that the Constitution of India is made applicable to the entire of J&K so that the citizens of India living in J&K may also share all fundamental rights as their co-citizen have been enjoying in the rest of the country. Prof.Bhim Singh told the Supreme Court of India this afternoon while he was arguing a case for the implementation of Fundamental Rights guaranteed to the Advocates in J&K that if highly educated elite in the society-lawyers, could be deprived of their fundamental rights what kind of equity and justice a common citizen of India living in Leh, Kargil, Zanskar, Kashmir or Kathua or Poonch shall expect. Prof.Bhim Singh argued equity under Advocates Act for all lawyers in J&K too.
