Sub:- BJP, NC, Congress violating Code of Conduct.

It is a grave situation in J&K so far as application of Code of Conduct is concerned. When I visited Srinagar, District of Gandherbal entire area, roads, buildings are decorated with party flags and buntings. The posters are pasted on the government walls. Similar is the situation in Banihal, Ramban, Doda, Chhatroo in Kishtwar District, Kishtwar City and Bhaderwah. On the visit of Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi in Kishtwar this morning, entire Kishtwar District has been converted into curfew zone. All the government vehicles and materials are being used for BJP’s election campaign and. The local and Election Observers in these entire areas are working under the dictates of respective Dy. Commissioners who are District Election Officers. The election has been converted into a battlefield with entire police and security vehicles provided to the ordinary workers of BJP, Congress and NC.
The District Election Officer, Jammu raided Panthers Party headquarters in Gandhinagar, Jammu and picked up a vehicle (Tata Sumo) which was stationed in the office for fixing election material. The District Election Officer refused to provide permission to JKNPP vehicles. The permission was granted a day later to justify impounding the JKNPP vehicle. It is important to note that notification for Jammu election has not been issued yet. The vehicle was not involved in any campaigning at all. The District Election Officer is working as an agent of the National Conference.
Security cover and escort vehicle provided to JKNPP candidate Mr. Jehangir Khan in Karnah (Kashmir) constituency was withdrawn the next day after a scrutiny. Mr. Jehangir Khan is working in highly sensitive area and cannot move for his election campaign. The J&K government has provided security cover with security vehicles and free fuel to all the candidates, their election agents and district presidents and office bearers of all the political parties except JKNPP.
Mr. Imtiaz Ahmed, a candidate from Inderwal (Kishtwar) has not been provided even a single escort whereas all other candidates, even independent candidates have been provided with escort, security and free fuel in Doda, Kishtwar and Ramban Districts. When Mr. Imtiaz Ahmed contacted Kishtwar headquarters he was told as there is no fuel for his escort vehicle. Mr. Iqbal Mohd. Chaudhary is Vice President of JKNPP and Incharge of militancy affected area of Doda and Kishtwar Districts. He has not been provided sufficient security nor even with escort vehicle. The JKNPP candidates and their election agents are handicapped to continue election campaign. Not a single state general secretary, vice president or state office bearer has been provided any security cover nor with escort vehicles to actively participate in the election campaign in J&K.
Four candidates of JKNPP could not file their nomination papers in Ladakh and Gurez (Bandipora) only because the state refused provide them any security cover not even a single security man.
Hon’ble CEC this is the kind of the situation in J&K. How can you claim that elections are being held free and fairly in J&K. Code of Conduct is only being misused to suppress and oppress the Panthers Party election campaign and the observers as well as most of the district election officers are working as agents for BJP or for NC and Congress.
“It is just for your honour’s information that fuel for the BP car, which has been provided to me because of my ‘Z’ security that fuel (petrol) (which is provided to me for the past 14 years in J&K) has been stopped and I have not been given paid accommodation in any Guest House and Circuit House in the areas where there is no hotel or otherwise to stay, whereas all other leaders of the political parties are enjoying all state facilities in the government Dak Bungalows. I have spent most of my nights during election campaign in the Valley and in Jammu in the freezing cold in my private vehicle.”
You are the judge, let you judge yourself, is it a free and fair election.
With regards from Doda District,
Yours sincerely,

Prof.Bhim Singh

NPP constitutes relief and rehabilitation committees in Doda, Ramban Districts

J&K National Panthers Party has constituted relief and rehabilitation committees for the flood victims in the Districts of Ramban, Doda, Kishtwar. Mr.  Iqbal Choudhary shall head the joint committee for Doda and Kishtwar Districts. Other senior members shall be M/s. Anil Parihar, Rajender Singh Wazir, Ram Krishan Sharma in Kishtwar and Subhash Gupta, Dharam Singh, Ex-serviceman shall be the members. Ramban District relief and rehabilitation committee shall be headed by its General President, Mr. Suraj Parihar, Advocate. The other members of the committee shall be Mr. Sewa Singh Bali, Mr. Shakil Ahmed Wani, Mr. Mangat Singh, Mohd. Rafiq Katoch, Mr. Nawaz Ahmed Roniyal, Mr. Abdul Rashid Katoch, Mr. Inderjit and others shall be the members of the Ramban District Committee.

Prof.Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of the party who visited Ramban, Doda and Udhampur Districts today held several meetings with the District leaders and Panthers Party activists directing them to carry the mission relief and rehabilitation for all who have suffered heavily by the devastation of floods in these areas.

Prof.Bhim Singh also advised the District RRCs (relief and rehabilitation committees) to visit each village in their respective areas and collect data regarding the losses; land, crop, cattle, houses or otherwise. He appealed the people to file individual reports before the RRCs at the earliest. Prof.Bhim Singh said that J&K government has been directed by the Supreme Court to file the action taken report by 10th October, 2014. Prof.Bhim Singh said that the Panthers Party shall also be submitting affidavits in connection with the damages and losses caused to the people during the natural calamity caused by unprecedented floods in the entire state. He said that though all the 10 districts of Jammu Pradesh have suffered heavily yet he did not find a single aid vehicle moving to any district of Jammu. He said that he has seen dozen of trucks loaded with relief materials for the flood victims rushing across Banihal tunnel which is a welcome step but people of Jammu also deserved some kind of sympathy from the Prime Minister and the aid giver.

Prof.Bhim Singh regretted that even Prime Minister of India has forgotten the name of Jammu while addressing UN General Assembly the other day. He admitted before the world body that it was only Kashmir Valley which suffered and government is helping them. Prof.Bhim Singh said that Mr. Modi has deliberately chosen to ignore Jammu or it was his ignorance. He said whatever maybe the reason people of Jammu have felt hurt on the statement of Prime Minister. He asked Mr.Modi is it Kashmir State or it is Jammu and Kashmir State?
