Governor Rule in J&K highly necessary to save people from further death & destruction

Prof.Bhim Singh, Chief Patron, National Panthers Party and Executive Chairman of State Legal Aid Committee today appealed the Parliamentarians in the civil society of India to take urgent action to ensure that J&K survives the human disaster under the threat of the militants and anti-national forces. Prof.Bhim Singh said that 99% public opinion in the country is in favour of handing over the administration to the Governor by imposing Governor Rule in the state. The present government has failed from all aspects and three months’ time is more than sufficient to prove the facts that present government has failed from all aspects and angers concerning the security of the state and protection of the citizens.

Prof.Bhim Singh has also filed a writ petition in the Supreme Court under Article 32 of the Constitution of India for seeking a direction to the Union Govt. to advice the Governor of J&K under Section 92 of J&K Constitution to dismiss the present government and the Assembly so that Governor Rule is imposed, so that the people of J&K are provided social and physical security, so that a common man feels secured in his own home and so that rule flow returns to govern the state without any further loss of time.

NPP Supremo appreciates Sushma Swaraj speech in United Nations but regretted that she failed to touch the hidden volcano

Addressing a press conference in Jammu, the winter capital of J&K State this morning at Ashoka Hotel, Prof. Bhim Singh, Founder of National Panthers Party while addressing a press conference, he expressed shock on the failure of Modi Government for having fail into totality to oppose and expose the enemies of peace in India vis-a-vis Jammu and Kashmir.  Prof. Bhim Singh, though, appreciated the strong speech made by Mrs. Sushma Swaraj on thefloor of the General Assembly of United Nations exposing a Pakistan with a strong note.  He expressed shock that Government of India in its brief for the Foreign Minster had failed to expose the dangerous design of Pakistan vis-a-vis Jammu and Kashmir.  The Panthers Party Supremo while praising Mrs. Sushma Swaraj for her wonderful speech on the floor of the General Assembly of the United Nations but regretted that the Foreign Minister of India could not come out on the failure of the Indian leadership to integrate Jammu and Kashmir with the rest of the country when Constitution of India was promulgated on 26th January, 1950. 

            Prof. Bhim Singh said that Indian leadership had committed a blunder in the Constituent Assembly when they promulgated Constitution of India by keeping Jammu and Kashmir out of the Union.  Insertion of Article 370, though temporary, was the greatest blunder of all the political parties who were representing the Constituent Assembly from 1947 to 1950.  Prof. Bhim Singh said that Maharaja Hari Singh was the only Maharaja who had declared in 1931 in London Round Table Conference that, “I am an Indian first and then Maharaja”.  That Maharaja was exiled by Nehru’s Government in 1948. Yet the state of Jammu and Kashmir was not merged into the Union of India. On 20th August, 1952 Sheikh Abdullah passed a resolution in his home Constituent Assembly which had no relevance after Maharaja’s Accession to the Union of India for 26th October, 1947.  Jammu and Kashmir was not merged in the Union of India in spite of the Accession signed by the Ruler on 26thOctober, 1947 at Amar Singh Palace, Jammu in the presence of federal Home Secretary Shri V.P Menon. 

Prof. Bhim Singh regretted that the Modi government has failed to understand the complicates of the situation and Mrs. Sushma Swaraj was not properly addressed to speak on the subject. Prof. Bhim Singh said that Jammu and Kashmir became integral part of the Union of India, offer was made by the Maharaja and accepted by Lord Mountbatten on 27th October, 1947.  This is a tragedy that the Constituent Assembly did not integrate J&K with the Union of India in spite of the fact that the people and the leadership of Jammu and Kashmir has made commitment in the Constitution of Jammu and Kashmir that state of Jammu and Kashmir is and shall remain integral part of the Union of India. 

 Prof. Bhim Singh said that the Parliament of India has failed to discharge its duty to integrate the state of Jammu and Kashmir as they have done in respect of 577 states and even Baroda which acceded to the Union of India in 1948. He said that Goa was liberated from Portuguese control in 1961 and stands integrated with the Union of India.  Why not J&K till today? 

Prof. Bhim Singh called on Members of Parliament including those who are ruling the country to go through the speeches of Mr. Krishna Menon he made in 1957 placing all facts on records and exposing Pakistan for the utter violation of UN resolution of 13th August, 1948.  Prof. Bhim Singh regretted that this part of the history was completely ignored by previous government in the centre and this truth has been buried deep by the BJP government led by Shri Narendra Kumar Modi.  He regretted that Mrs. Sushma Swaraj in her wonderful speech failed to remove the curtain from the grave yard of the Constitution history vis–a-vis Jammu and Kashmir. 

 Prof. Bhim Singh gave a call to the Members of the Parliament to come out straight, integrate the state of Jammu and Kashmir by merging it with the into the Union of India, though late shall expose all enemies of India before the world.   

Call on jurists, civil society in India to help defend civil rights of 1.5 crores Indian citizens in J&K

Prof.Bhim Singh, Supremo of National Panthers Party & Executive Chairman of State Legal Aid Committee, J&K has made a strong appeal to the legal fraternity as well as the civil society in the country to come forward in support of nearly 15 million citizens of India (residents of J&K) who have been facing inhuman treatment and discrimination at the hands of the Govt.of India as the Parliament of India has been keeping quiet for nearly 65 years.

Prof.Bhim Singh, the Executive Chairman of the State Legal Aid Committee as well as former Sr. Executive Member of the Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) for four terms made a compassionate appeal to the Advocates in the country through their respective Bar Associations to intervene by supporting the cause of the people of J&K to be treated at par with the citizens of India in other states.

Prof.Bhim Singh called on the legal fraternity to first of all evaluate the contents of Article 370 of the Constitution of India which is only temporary yet has been kept in alive since 26th January, 1950 the day Constitution of India was promulgated. Prof.Bhim Singh made a strong appeal to the lawyers’ fraternity to go through the contents of the Article 370 to realize how people of J&K have been enslaved under the cruel joke filtered into the body of Article 370.

Prof.Bhim Singh appealed the lawyers’ community all over the country to come forward to rescue more than 15 million citizens of India (called as permanent residents) since 1950 when India became republic. He said this is petty and disgraceful that the people of J&K were deprived of an opportunity to share benefit of fundamental rights (Chapter-III in the Indian Constitution). The Indian citizens as the Constitution of India claimed and living in J&K have been kept away from the fundamental rights. 550 states which merged with the Union of India along with J&K were merged into the Union of India. Why J&K was kept out of that scheme and not (not) merged into the Union of India on 26th January, 1950. The ruler of J&K, Maharaja Hari Singh was forcibly thrown out of the state by the Central leaders yet he was not removed from his status (Monarch). What was that conspiracy and who were the real culprits? The new generations, and the civil society particularly the lawyers’ fraternity have a very important role to play to identify the real enemies of India who kept J&K out of the map of the Indian Constitution.

Prof.Bhim Singh said that Clause (3) of Article 370 of the Indian Constitution deserves a serious reading. The so-called Constituent Assembly created in J&K at the behest of the Indian leaders deserved a serious analysis as to what was the real object in this game. Prof.Bhim Singh himself a Barrister-at-Law, who holds a LL.M Degree in Law from London University has been repeatedly asking the leadership in the Centre to explain the reason for this treacherous game to keep J&K out of the map of Union of India in 1950.

Prof.Bhim Singh said that the President of India is still holding the power of the VICEROY OF INDIA was denied his constitutional right to amend any part of Article 370 without the approval of the so-called Constituent Assembly of J&K. This Constituent Assembly was not elected even. This was a big fraud with the entire nation by the Constituent Assembly of India.

Prof.Bhim Singh said that Parliament of India during Morarji’s prime ministership in 1979 amended Chapter-III of the Constitution of India, changed Right to Property from the fundamental rights to an ordinary right. That mean the fundamental rights could also be changed by the Parliament then why Parliament has not been able to remove word, ‘temporary’ even from the introductory remarks of Article 370. In 66 years people of J&K continue to be ruled without fundamental rights under a ‘temporary provision’, Article 370.

Prof.Bhim Singh said that lawyers’ fraternity has that role to play for upholding the unity and the integrity of India which the patriots of 20th century could have played. The Union of India is under a serious threat because the politicians have floated a trading company without investment called ‘politics’ and their aim is only money, wealth, power least caring for the Great Bharata, the motherland. He strongly appealed to the lawyers’ community in every corner of the country (India) including J&K to launch a vigorous constitutional battle to bring freedom, civil rights and fundamental rights for their countrymen in J&K so that Bharata rises as the leader of the world once again and India grows stronger from Kashmir to Kanyakumari.

NPP Supremo’s call to MPs to realize affects of Article 370 vis-à-vis National Integration

Prof.Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of National Panthers Party struck a highly appealing call to the Members of Parliament to spend 10 minutes of their valuable time to go throw the hidden contents of Article 370 in the Constitution of India which is available in all regional languages also to enable them to come to a genuine conclusion whether present language of Article 370 deserve a change in the greater interest of national integrity and unity.

          Prof.Bhim Singh expressed shock saying that 90% Members of the Parliament out of 790 MPs have not cared to study and value the contents of Article 370 which has been kept alive by the Parliament knowing well the contents of Article 370 are affecting the nation like cancer for the past 65 years. Prof.Bhim Singh, a Sr. Advocate of the Supreme Court, a post graduate from London University and a Barrister-at-Law has been continuously carrying a battle against Article 370 which he describes as a cancer in the heart of Union of India.

          Prof.Bhim Singh said that this is a tragedy that Article 370 which was opposed by the Chairman of Constituent Assembly, Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar was inserted into the Constitution with a sinister move and a conspiracy to weaken the national unity when the Constitution was promulgated on 26th January, 1950 by the Constituent Assembly. Prof.Bhim Singh said that the Constituent Assembly committed one of the biggest blunders by inserting Article 370 in the Indian Constitution which was totally against the basics of National Integration. 557 states were merged into the Union of India which included Hyderabad and Junagarh even though these two states never signed Instrument of Accession. Baroda was merged with the Union of India when its Maharaja Gaekwad signed Instrument of Accession in 1949 only. The Maharaja of J&K had signed similar Instrument of Accession as was signed by other 557 rulers.

          Prof.Bhim Singh questioned the decision of the Constituent Assembly to insert Article 370 in the Indian Constitution keeping J&K away from the map of integration. J&K was kept aside by the Constituent Assembly without assigning a reason. The new generation, particularly the intelligentsia, political and social activists should answer this question as to why J&K was not declared integrated with the Union of India along with 557 states when the Constitution of India was launched on 26th January, 1950.

          Prof.Bhim Singh said that Maharaja Hari Singh was bundled out of state in 1949 itself without abolishing Monarchy in the state. This needs a serious debate and discussion on the role and mission of the major political parties, mainly the Congress.

          Prof.Bhim Singh called on all the members of the civil society, particularly the lawyers and intelligentsia to seek answer to the following questions which shall help the entire nation and its integration;

a).      What was reason or compulsion on the members of the Constituent Assembly to force Dr. Karan Singh an heir to the throne as a Regent of the State? Why Maharaja Hari Singh was subjected to humiliation and thrown out of J&K without divesting his status as Maharaja in 1948?

b).     Why Article 238 was not applied to the State of J&K?

c).     What was the reason and hidden agenda behind Clause 3 of Article 370 with its proviso,“The recommendation of the Constituent Assembly of the State referred to in clause (2) shall be necessary before the President issues such a notification.” Why this proviso was inserted to put a break on the Constitutional powers of the President of the Republic of India?

d).     What is the jurisprudence and what was the reason to put a stop of the constitutional powers of the President of India who was empowered in this provision by the Constituent Assembly. How the powers of the President of India could be curtailed by this legislation which was absolutely unwarranted, undesirable and unacceptable in the domain of the Constitution of India?

e).     This is tragic in the history of the Constitution of Union of India that the so-called Constituent Assembly created in J&K for the pleasure of the Constituent Assembly of India was declared more powerful than the National Assembly or Parliament. This clause was highly unacceptable, against the principles of democracy which was enshrined in the Constitution of India by its members.

Prof.Bhim Singh said that the members of the Constituent Assembly literally murdered the soul of Indian Constitution and even threatened the very existence of democracy and unity of the entire country by keeping J&K out of the map of India by inserting Article 370 which deserves to be trashed without delay by the Parliament.

Prof.Bhim Singh said that the he shall constitute a committee of 100 lawyers from all over the country and start a movement in the whole country for one India, one Constitution and one Flag.
