NPP Supremo urged President of India for urgent intervention vis-Ã -vis J&K

Prof.Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of National Panthers Party, Executive Chairman of State Legal Aid Committee besides a Sr. Advocate of Supreme Court of India urged President of India, Shri Ramnath Kovind to intervene into the extremely dangerous situation that has been developing endangering the security of the state vis-Ã -vis Jammu and Kashmir. NPP Supremo said that Article 370 has vested immense power in the hands of President of India to intervene through the parameters of Section 92 of J&K Constitution to save the integrity of the Union of India and security of the State particularly when the situation in the State jumps out of the control of the state mechanism. NPP Supremo an expert on Jammu and Kashmir affairs impressed upon the President of India that the situation today is much worse than it was on August 8, 1953 when the then Sadar-e-Riyasat, Dr. Karan Singh dismissed a democratic government headed by the then Prime Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, Sheikh Mohd. Abdullah. Sheikh Mohd. Abdullah was taken into custody and replaced by his junior, Bakshi Ghulam Mohd. as the Prime Minister of J&K. The situation today is much worse than it was in 1989 when elected Chief Minister Dr. Farooq Abdullah was dismissed from power and the then Governor Shri Jagmohan took over reins of power under Governor Rule. NPP Supremo who has been witnessing all this drama played by the rulers of Delhi to contain the situation in J&K since 1953 as a student, as a political activist and as a elected legislator in J&K conveyed to the President of India today in 2018 that the situation has turned a ugly face and there is an urgent need to provide security and protection to the residents of J&K who were granted citizenship of India in 1950 and also were granted Fundamental Rights at par with the citizens of India. Prof.Bhim Singh conveyed to the President of India that it was on May 14, 1954 when the then President of India, Dr. Rajendra Prasad scuttled away the Fundamental Rights enshrined in the Chapter-III of the Indian Constitution which were duly granted to the Indian citizens in J&K also on January 26, 1950, they were snatched from the citizens of India residing in the State of J&K. This was done only to create legal convenience to put Sheikh Abdullah on trial for something he allegedly had done in J&K in 1953. Sheikh Abdullah was detained in the Southern State of Tamilnadu by this mechanism.

Prof.Bhim Singh urged the President of India for his urgent intervention firstly to withdraw the Ordinance which the President of India had issued in May 14, 1954 so that Chapter-III of the Indian Constitution carrying basket of Fundamental Rights remains intact in the State of J&K so that the Indian citizens in J&K shall not be treated as alien. This was the first discrimination against the Indian citizens in the State of J&K and they continue to be deprived of their Fundamental Rights—Thanks to the Parliament of India.

Prof.Bhim Singh also urged the President of India to dismiss the present Govt. in J&K comprising of outdated, unwanted and undesirable legislators of BJP and PDP who have been running the State without the application of any rule of law. Prof.Bhim Singh urged the President for immediate dissolution of the State Assembly so that fresh roads are raised for holding fresh election in the State. Proviso in Section (3) of Article 370 should be declared as non-existent provision for the reason that the so-called Constituent Assembly of J&K ceased to exist the day Constitution of J&K came into operation on January 26, 1957. There is no need for the President to take the approval of J&K Constituent Assembly after J&K Constituent Assembly was buried deep into the constitutional track in J&K.

The President of India is competent to introduce any legislation in respect of any provision contained in Article 370 which has been running as a temporary provision since 1950 till date—even when great RSS rules the Indian state. This is the constitutional situation vis-à -vis J&K, and this is the political resolution to strengthen the National Integration vis-à -vis J&K to Kanyakumari. The Parliament stands supreme and it does not need a letter of approval or clearance from a State Legislature when its ruler had signed the Instrument of Accession in 1947 like other 575 rulers. Prof.Bhim Singh regretted and called it a tragedy that Parliament of India, the Parliament of free India has not dared till this date to legislate in respect of Defence, Foreign Affairs, Communication and Allied Matters though all these three subjects were personally penned down by the ruler of J&K, Maharaja Hari Singh on October 26, 1947. The Parliament of India has committed unforgivable wrong and the day has come when the Parliament today must demonstrate its constitutional powers and declared that J&K stands integrated with the rest of the country like other 575 states. There lies the solution. Prof.Bhim Singh declared that he has given one year to the Parliament of India to decide the fate of the people of J&K or!
