Prof. Bhim Singh accompanied by several JKNPP leaders including Ms. Anita Thakur (General Secretary), Jagdev Singh (Coordination Secretary), Manoj Gupta (District President PTU Kathua), Mohinder Manhas (Public Relations Officer) and others visited Hiranagar and greeted Mr. Rajinder Manju, State Secretary on the marriage of his son. Prof. Bhim Singh was a student in High School, Ramnagar (1954-57) where Late Shri Parshotam Singh, father of Shri Rajinder Singh Manju was Bhim Singh’s Teacher. Prof. Bhim Singh maintained his close relationship with Shri Parshotam Singh ji and has been closely associated as a member of Manju’s family.

Prof. Bhim Singh congratulated Mr. Manju Singh and his family on the wedding celebration of his beloved son, Mr. Yogeshwar Singh who got wedded last evening in Hiranagar.

Prof.Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of National Panthers Party accused the BJP-PDP leadership to foment communal conflict in J&K in order to regain the lost credibility of their political victory in J&K. This helps BJP to create a communal divide so that they succeed in their nefarious designs to divert the mind of the majority community in the country to gain lost support in the coming elections in Bihar and elsewhere. The NPP Supremo cautioned the Panthers Party activists and all other revolutionary groups and parties who have been opposing the BJP for its utter failure to follow their promised agenda in Jammu Pradesh. They have failed to hold delimitation of constituencies to remove political discrimination in J&K. BJP has failed to address the grievances of 15 lacs Pak and POK refugees who have been living a life of wretched of the earth for the past 67 years without statehood, civil or political rights. These refugees or migrants have been victim of Congress for many years and now the BJP is doing the same with the citizens of India as they are. BJP promised to destroy Resettlement Act, provide proprietory rights (Malkiyat) to the allottees from POK and Pak who have been living as allottees on temporary basis in the agricultural land which the people left in J&K while voluntarily migrating to Pakistan in 1947. The Govt. of J&K has enacted a Law allowing all these Pak-nationals (presently) to return and seek full rehabilitation on their lands. This Law has been challenged by the Panthers Party and is still pending before the Supreme Court of India with a permanent stay till disposal. Jammu Pradesh has 37 Assembly seats against 46 in the Valley. The population of the two regions is almost even. The BJP had made a commitment for holding delimitation which they forgot. There is discriminatory recruitment policy in J&K which is opposed by the Panthers Party tooth and nail from the streets to the Supreme Court. J&K government withdrew SRO in this connection on the petition of JKNPP but it reimposed the same discriminatory Law after the JKNPP withdrew petition. The J&K government under the leadership of Farooq Abdullah as Chief Minister in 1999 grabbed 28000 sq. kms. of forest land in Nagrota sector for the resettlement of Kashmiri Muslim Migrants. The petition filed by the Panthers Party against this communal enactment is pending in the High Court of J&K for final disposal. The State has been playing hide and seek with the High Court. The BJP betray the people of Jammu Pradesh, surrendered before PDP leadership for the sake of power and money which has been proved beyond an iota of doubt. A petition was sponsored before Jammu High Court (PIL) to seek an order on the existing Law just to provoke a section of the society. It needs a special care to find out who has sponsored another PIL before the Kashmir Wing of the same High Court. Interestingly, the two wings of the same High Court have issued parallel directions which need urgent attention of the Governor of J&K to ensure that the judiciary is not used for political ends by any individual or group of individuals. Prof.Bhim Singh said that this being done to create a communal divide in the state to divert the attention of the people from the real issues; chaos, disorder, anti-national propaganda, corruption and the issue of reorganization of the state by establishing twin states in J&K, Kashmir Valley and Jammu Pradesh where lies the only solution. He cautioned all nationalist activists and secular forces in J&K to act very carefully and with caution to defeat the ugly designs of the corrupt, communal and failed government.

A massive protest was held by the Panthers Party activists in front of Raj Bhawan, Jammu demanding return of security and accommodation of Prof. Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of National Panthers Party who was dislodged on 10th September, 2015 from his official residence, V.P. House, New Delhi. The Modi government rejected Ram Jethmalani, Member, Rajya Sabha and Former Law Minister who had sponsored accommodation for the Prof. Bhim Singh. The Modi government also rejected the request of Shri Ram Dass Athawle, Member Rajya Sabha to provide security accommodation as his guest.  Prof. Bhim Singh earlier in 1991 was allotted one room accommodation by Prime Minister, Shri Chander Shekhar on security reason which was cancelled by BJP government though Prof. Bhim Singh has been paying Rs.17/18 thousands per month. Several parliamentarians, advocates, social activists and notables had requested Prime Minister Modi to provide full security cover and accommodation for his security who has been doing a historic, courageous, nationalist and patriotic rule for the protection of national flag and national interest in J&K. 

The Panthers Party activists led by Ms. Anita Thakur General Secretary, Bansi Lal Sharma, Adv Political Advisor, Jagdev Singh, Coordination Secretary, Rajesh Pargotra, Provincial President, Naresh Chib District President today held demonstration expressing full solidarity with Prof. Bhim Singh in his heroic role in defense of national interest in J&K. Others prominent members who participated in the protest demonstration included Rakesh Gupta State Secretary, Shanker Singh Chib Provincial Secretary, Sham Gorka Vice-President PTU, Vilakshan Singh and Gagan Pratap Singh General Secretaries Young Panthers, Ravinder Jamwal Provincial Secretary, Bashir-Ud-Din District President Reasi, Rajesh Gondhi District General Secretary, Nirmal Kishore, Naveen Bali, Asha Rani, Vikram Singh, Akash Kumar, Baldev Singh, Jitender Gupta, Rakesh Verma etc. 

          The Panthers Party activists set on fire PM Modi effigy demanding immediate dismissal of BJP-PDP government which has become security risk in J&K. The demonstrators appealed to the people of the Valley, particularly the youth to maintain communal harmony and keep secular tradition and brotherhood alive.

Prof. Bhim Singh in his message on this occasion said that a handful of power hungry politicians are trying to create communal conflict to disturb peace in J&K at the behest of foreign powers which shall not be accepted by the people in J&K. He said that Govt. in J&K had failed to function in accordance with the Constitution and Law therefore Governor should invoke Section 92 of J&K Constitution to dismiss the government in the national interest and security of the state.

It was felt that there are 55,000 regular posts in the Govt. departments and demanded to fill all the posts on regular basis through a due process and procedure.

Heavy tributes were paid to the martyrs of Labour Movement who were killed by bullets in labourers May Day rally for equal treatment in 1889 in Chicago.

Election Commission writes back to Bhim Singh, Denies violation of SC judgment on ‘paper trail’

Election Commission of India in its reply to Prof.Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of National Panthers Party has denied that, “The Commission has taken no initiative to implement ‘paper trail’ as directed by Supreme Court of India in the judgment dated 08.10.2014”. The Commission in its letter signed by Shri Madhusudan Gupta, Under Secretary has claimed that the allegation is not true. Prof.Bhim Singh in his letter dated 16.01.2015 addressed to the CEC has accused Election Commission for holding Assembly elections in December, 2014 in violation of the Supreme Court direction which read as,

“….we permit the ECI to introduce the same in gradual stages or geographical-wise in the ensuing General Election. The area, state or actual booth (s) are to be decided by the ECI and ECI is free to implement the same in a phased manner…”  

Admitting that VVPAT (Voter-verified paper audit trail) system was used in 71-Gandhinagar, 72-Jammu East and 73-Jammu West only. That means Election Commission of India has used ‘paper trail’ system in 3 out of 87 Assembly constituencies. Prof.Bhim Singh said that Gandhinagar Assembly constituency recorded 60% voting percentage whereas in the hills like Bani (Jammu), Bandipora (Kashmir) and other Assembly constituencies crossed voting percentage by 80%. Even in Udhampur Assembly constituency poll percentage crossed 82% which was not possible at all. Prof.Bhim Singh regretted that CEC is adopting ‘paper trail’ system only in two Assembly constituencies in NCT of Delhi say 40-New Delhi & 38-Delhi Cantt. This clearly shows, said Prof.Bhim Singh that the party in power in the Centre is trying to avoid the implementation of SC judgment for the obvious reasons. EVMs were manipulated in J&K and same shall be the situation in NCT of Delhi.

Prof.Bhim Singh said that the Panthers Party is filing a petition in the Supreme Court challenging the validity of the elections held recently in J&K which gave undue advantage to the BJP for obvious reasons.

Prof.Bhim Singh regretted that Election Commission of India has decided to hold biennial election to the Rajya Sabha for four seats in J&K through three notifications which is quite improper, unconstitutional, illegal and malafide as it is done so only to benefit PDP-BJP (new unholy alliance in the offing). In 2009 the Congress as a ruling party in the Centre played the same trick and fraud to secure all the four seats between two alliance partners namely, the Congress and the NC.

 

Hundreds join Panthers election campaign in Gulab Singh land Hail Jammu Dogra Pahari State

Prof.Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of National Panthers Party with his high power team visited several areas in Chhamb sector, Akhnoor, Pargwal along international border in the District of Jammu seeking support of the electorates for the Panthers Party which has recently declared formation of Jammu Dogra Pahari State. Prof.Bhim Singh was accompanied by Shri Gunwant Singh, Provincial General Secretary, Shri Pushvinder Manhas, Working President, Young Panthers, Shri Sewa Singh Bali, General Secretary, Panthers Trade Union, Shri Janak Raj@ Ashok Kumar. Shri Pushvinder Manhas is contesting from Akhnoor Constituency against the Congress Minister, whereas Shri Janak Raj is contesting in reserved constituency against the sitting Dy. Chief Minister.

residing within the shelling range so that each family can have social security to live. He said that Congress, NC and PDP were the mother of Bill no.9 (Resettlement Act) which provides permit to nearly 5 lac Pakistanis to return to Jammu and resettled. He reminded the people that it is Panthers Party which is fighting this case in the Supreme Court against the draconian Law whereas Congress, NC, PDP and BJP have been opposing the petition of Panthers Party.

Prof.Bhim Singh declared that the state organized by Maharaja Gulab Singh between 1820 and 1842 (Jammu State shall be revived as Jammu Dogra Pahari State). He said that Article 370 is dangerous to the National Integration and has to be amended to provide power to the Parliament to legislate in respect of J&K for complete integration of the State.

Prof.Bhim Singh appealed the youth, farmers, the working class, the women and the students to join the movement of the Panthers Party for the reorganization of the state so that every citizen of India including Pak refugees, POK refugees, the migrants shall enjoy equality before the law, full citizenship and right to live with human dignity.
