NPP Chairman slaps Rs.50 lacs damage notice to Tribune, Chandigarh for blackmail

Mr. Harsh Dev Singh, MLA, Chairman, J&K National Panthers Party today expressed shock and anger on the mischievous, baseless and defamatory story carried in the Tribune (in all its editions) giving an impression as if JKNPP is merging or dissolving into BJP. Its story today with headlines, ‘BJP wants Panthers Party to contest on lotus symbol’ is totally misleading, malicious, defamatory and is not acceptable in the discipline of journalism. He said that the Panthers Party was founded in 1982 under the leadership of Prof.Bhim Singh who resigned his Membership in the Assembly and the Congress Party with a mission to defeat the communal, reactionary, anti-national, criminal and corrupt political forces operating in J&K.

He said that the Panthers Party has been fighting with all its force and dedication for the reorganization of J&K to ensure the formation of three states with full statehood status to Jammu (Dogra-Pahari) Pradesh.

The Chairman rejected the story and a propaganda carried by a section of the media at the behest of BJP who have been misleading the people of J&K, particularly the innocent and brave Dogras living in Jammu Pradesh about the leadership of the Panthers Party. He said that Panthers Party is only political party in J&K which is acceptable by the people of all the regions, capable to deliver justice to the people particularly the youth and defeat the communal, criminal, corrupt and opportunist forces who have been exploiting the people of J&K for six decades only to raise their vote accounts and the revenues. He said that the Panthers Party shall fight this election in J&K with a mission 50 + and Inshah Allah (God willing), Panthers Party shall write a new history of revolution and change in the state of J&K.

He sounded the JKNPP workers not to be misled by the false and the misleading propaganda by a section of the media sponsored by BJP, NC and the Congress.

NPP announces first list of 10 candidates from Kashmir Valley, Congress accused invoking BJP ‘Hindutva’

Addressing a Press Conference in Srinagar (Kashmir), Prof.Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of National Panthers Party & Member of National Integration Council today accused Congress for invoking BJP Hindutva to create communal divide in the conflict-torn state of J&K.

He said that J&K Congress leaders out of sheer frustration and panic have started blowing horns on ‘Hindutva’ in J&K demanding a Hindu Chief Minister in the state. The J&K Congress leaders as well as BJP have been exploiting the electorates in Jammu Pradesh under one pretext or the other. A Congress leader from Jammu has started advocating for a Hindu Chief Minister in J&K with an attempt to woo the majority in Jammu Pradesh for the coming Assembly polls. The Congress has started new stunt after their complete rout in the Lok Sabha polls in Jammu Pradesh. The BJP has been exploiting the Jammu electorates on the same slogan for years. On the other hand the Kashmir Valley based political parties have been abetting the BJP to create communal divide in Jammu Pradesh so that the Kashmir based parties shall reap the harvest in Kashmir Valley. This happened during the 2008 polls when a Congress Chief Minister created a ruckus in Jammu by acquiring the land of Shri Amarnath Shrine Board. Now they have again invoked the communal slogan patronized by BJP Prime Minister, Narendra Modi. Realizing the race is tough and Congress ship sinking, it has given new a slogan of a Hindu Chief Minister.

Prof.Bhim Singh reminded the people of the country that National Conference leader Dr. Farooq Abdullah in 2002 had declared support to Prof.Bhim Singh as the next Chief Minister. NC was having 31 seats in the Assembly. It was the Congress which opposed Prof.Bhim Singh’s name and joined Mufti Mohd. Sayeed to keep Prof.Bhim Singh out of the race. He said that Congress is trying to fool the people in the name of Hindutva which amounts to an attack on the composite culture of the state.

Prof.Bhim Singh also announced first list of 10 candidates from the Kashmir Valley. The candidates included the sitting MLC and President Young Panthers, Syed Mohd. Rafiq Shah from Kupwara. The list is as under:-

District Kupwara : Kupwara & Handwara  Constituencies: Syed Mohd Rafiq Shah, MLC, President,State Young Panthers & Karnah Constituency :Jehangir Ahmad Khan

Prof. Bhim Singh also said that his party shall take initiative from Delhi to Islamabad to promote Intra J&K Heart to Heart Talks between the people of J&K and POK so that the situation shall be resolved by the notables of J&K from both sides. He accused Anglo-American Bloc for encouraging terrorism in J&K with intention to destabilize India as the USA did with Yugoslavia, USSR, Afghanistan and several other Afro-Asian countries. He said that the policies of USA need to be checked by the Asian Bloc and that needs a healthy cooperation among SAARC countries with Russian Federation and China. He said that China, Russia and India should join hands against the impending terrorism planted by Anglo-American Bloc against the Afro-Asian countries.
