Governor Rule in J&K only way out To save J&K from disintegration

Prof.Bhim Singh, Supremo of National Panthers Party & Sr. Advocate of the Supreme Court of India urged the President of India, Shri Ramnath Kovind to invoke Section 92 of J&K Constitution directing the Governor of J&K to impose Governor Rule in the state in the interest of the entire country and well being of the residents of J&K who happened to be citizens of India also in spite of embargo laid by the clouds of Article 370.

NPP Supremo also urged the Prime Minister of India to look for the interest of the people of the entire country from J&K to Kanyakumari who happened to be citizens of India in spite of the betrayal by the Constituent Assembly of India by putting a ban on the legislative power of the Parliament to legislate in respect of all subjects including Defence, Foreign Affairs, Communications and Allied Matters which were signed by Maharaja Hari Singh on the Instrument of Accession on 26th October, 1947. Why, he asked, Parliament has been squeezed of his power to legislate in respect of these three subjects also which Maharaja of J&K offered to the Union of India like other 575 rulers of the mini states now Union of India.

NPP Supremo said what is happening in the so-called Legislative Assembly of J&K and is watched and its proceedings read all over the country is a matter of shame when J&K MLAs represent a Assembly which is not under the control of discipline of Constitution of India. The Assembly has become a liability for the people of the state and does not deserve to govern the state.

He called on the President of India to dismiss the present Govt. of J&K, and advice the Governor or J&K to dissolve the Assembly of J&K which should be followed by special Ordinance under Section 3 of Article 370 as proviso under Section 3 does not exist/no more relevant any longer as the so-called Constituent Assembly of J&K is dead and gone. The President is competent to issue an Ordinance in this regard directing the Parliament of India to legislate, at least, in respect of three subjects which Maharaja Hari Singh has signed under his own seal and signatures on 26th October, 1947.

He also urged the President of India to use his exclusive constitutional power to appoint a committee of highly placed persons (all from Central Services–not from States) to examine the requests/petitions/appeals of the so-called outlawed/dreaded youth in any state who would offer to give up violent approach. This committee should visit those states including Jammu and Kashmir where the youth have been involved in militancy/violent activities and they/anyone of them offers to give up violence/guns and join the mainstream. If Mr. Jaiprakash Narayan could persuade gun wielding dacoits and bring them in the mainstream why can’t we persuade the educated youth to give up bullets and take up ballots.

Prof.Bhim Singh said that he has lot of youth in the country who can play that role to save this great nation from further death and destruction. Neither bullets nor jails are the remedy. The only way out is revival of democracy in the state through popular elections to the Assembly and extension of all Fundamental Rights including Human Rights to the people of J&K who have been deprived of their civil rights by Article 35(A) and temporary Article 370. Article 35(A) must go and the President of India is the only authority to do that. Article 370 needs to be amended that can also be amended by the President in his absolute power under Article 370(3) as proviso attached with this section had become redundant on 26th January, 1957 when Constituent Assembly turned redundant the day so-called Constitution of J&K was imposed in the State.
