Ms. Anita Thakur appealed to the legislators of all political parties who have a human heart and respectful rule of law to support the Jammu Migrants outside and inside the legislature by joining hands with the NPP legislators inside the two houses.

The Panthers Party leader and Talwara Migrants Chairman Action Committee appealed the Chief Justice of High Court of J&K to expedite the hearing of the migrants’ contempt petition which was remitted on 07.07.2008 by the Supreme Court of India to the Chief Justice of J&K with clear directions for its final disposal and report.

“The High Court of J&K registered the matter as CPPIL No. 1 of 2008 titled as Suram Chand Sharma Vs. Gulam Nabi Azad & Ors. On 11.11.2009 the J&K High Court disposed of the petition with directions to pay the arrears within three months and few other directions were made. These directions were not implemented. Again contempt No.1/2010 titled Jagdev Singh Vs. G.K. Pillai was moved in J&K High Court on 26.02.2010. The matter has been listed 13 times but arrears have not been paid to the migrants as per the directions of the Supreme Court and the J&K High Court. It was clearly stated in the affidavit of J&K government before the Supreme Court that there were arrears of 21 crores for the period between 2004 and 2007. The Govt. of J&K has used coercive measures to drive away the genuine migrants from the private houses and thrown them out of their rented huts in order to demolish their addresses and claims.” The Panthers Party leader said in its communication.

The migrants committee has appealed to the Young Panthers and the NPSU for their support on 28
th February, 2013 to wake up the deaf and dumb rulers of J&K.
