JKNPP shall challenge it in Supreme Court : Judgment of J&K High Court on Article 370 unconstitutional

A meeting of the State Legal Aid Committee met in New Delhi today under the chairmanship of Prof.Bhim Singh which advised JKNPP to file a writ petition in the Supreme Court challenging the validity of the judgments of J&K High Court on Article 35(A) and 370.

Prof.Bhim Singh, Sr. Advocate and Executive Chairman of the State Legal Aid Committee described the two judgments of Srinagar Wing of J&K High Court dated 16.07.2015 and 09.10.2015 as violative of the Constitution and without jurisdiction of J&K High Court. Prof.Bhim Singh said that Srinagar Wing of the J&K High Court has acted beyond its authority and competence rather without any jurisdiction to deal with a matter pertaining to the Constitution of India which can only be dealt by the Parliament of India and none else.

Prof.Bhim Singh said that this judgment of High Court is also violative of Section 3 of the J&K Constitution which has mandated that J&K is and shall be integral part of India.

Several lawyers, jurists and notables from the civil society who attended the meeting appreciated the decision of the Panthers Party to file a writ petition before the Supreme Court of India challenging the validity of the two judgments of J&K High Court.

Prof.Bhim Singh has expressed surprise that PDP a ruling party in J&K has supported rather appreciated this judgment in spite of the fact that BJP which has been claiming to abolish Article 370 is sitting silent over the issue. He wanted Prime Minister Modi to come out on the issue so that the people of India shall no longer be exploited by BJP in the name of Article 370.


BJP instrumental abetting PDP & NC In promoting Dixon Plan in J&K

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.
