Addressing National Panthers Party office bearers and senior leaders of Rajouri District at Rajouri this afternoon, Prof.Bhim Singh, Founder of Panthers Movement congratulated the great people of Rajouri and Poonch of Jammu Pradesh who have been carrying the National Flag high and defending the borders since 1947. Prof.Bhim Singh was addressing a Rajouri District Panthers Party meeting at Rajouri this afternoon who expressed shock at the brutal attitude of J&K Govt. towards the residents of Jammu Pradesh particularly those residing on International Borders and Line of Control. Dozen of Panthers Party leaders came with long presentations and demands accusing the State administration that they are being ignored by the Govt. and they have not been given relief they are entitled to as Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and other Backward Areas people.

The local leadership pointed out that Scheduled Tribes mostly Gujjars, Bakerwals (Muslim fraternity), Gaddies and Scheduled Castes are not being provided all the privileges and facilities they are entitled to under the Constitution of India. The main reason is Article 370 which deprives the people of J&K of their basic rights and another tragedy of the people of J&K is Article 35(A) of the Constitution of India which authorizes the Govt. of J&K to deprive the people of any Fundamental Right or every right which was imposed by the President of India in 1954 to nail on the heads of all Fundamental Rights in J&K thus depriving the people of J&K of all Fundamental Rights which were assured in the Constitution of India following that Accession of J&K by the Maharaja in 1947.

Prof.Bhim Singh called on the people of Rajouri to join and support the Panthers Party which is the only political movement in the country which shall assure Fundamental Rights to the children of J&K who have been treated as strangers to the land. Prof.Bhim Singh said that reorganization of J&K is the only the solution to stop bloodshed in the State and the assure all Fundamental Rights to every citizen of India in Ladakh, Kashmir and Jammu Pradesh. Prof.Bhim Singh was accompanied several senior leaders from Jammu namely, Ms.Anita Thakur, General Secretary-JKNPP, Shanker Singh Chib, State Secretary, Shakti Singh Jamwal, President of Arts Club. The meeting was presided by Mushtaq Chaudhary, District President Rajouri who is an ex-serviceman and a committed nationalist. Other people who attended included Master Hoshiyar Sharma, Sr. District Vice President, Mohd. Akram, District Secretary, Mushtaq Charak, President, Young Panthers.

A resolution was passed unanimously in the meeting that J&K should be reorganized and twin states of Jammu Pradesh and Kashmir Valley should be recognized with one Governor and one High Court.
