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.   

NPP, others celebrate 121st Birth Anniversary of Maharaja Hari Singh, who acceded J&K to India

121st birth anniversary was celebrated with great pump and show by the activists of National Panthers Party, Bharatiya Samata Samaj and others at Jantar Mantar, the Hyde Park Corner of India this afternoon describing him as one of the greatest nationalists and Indian patriot who had challenged the British Crown in 1931 at Round Table Conference in London declaring that, “I am an Indian first and then a Maharaja”.

It was this declaration of Maharaja Hari Singh which made him to face several hostiletempests and storms from 1931 till the day he opted for exile on 5th March, 1948.

Prof.Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of National Panthers Party and post graduate in law from London University while addressing the Panthers Party activists at the historical Jantar Mantar, New Delhi declared that Maharaja Hari Singh had taken a historic decision by acceding to the Union of India on 26th October, 1947 and gathered support from all regions of J&K including Kashmir. He regretted that the Indian leadership in 1947 and 1950 failed to realize the international implication of keeping J&K out of the Union of India and did not include the State of J&K among 577 states of India which were included in the Union of India on 26th January, 1950. Prof.Bhim Singh said that this was the blunder committed by the Indian leadership in 1950 by excluding J&K from the list of states which were merged into the Union of India on 26th January, 1950.

maharaja-harisingh-birthdayThe Panthers Party described Maharaja Hari Singh as one of the greatest nationalists who had acceded the Union of India by signing the Instrument of Accession of 26th October, 1947. Prof.Bhim Singh said that Indian leadership failed to realize the significance and importance of the signatures of Maharaja Hari Singh on the Instrument of Accession in the presence of the then Home Secretary of India, Shri V.P. Menon.

Prof.Bhim Singh urged the Parliament of India to undo the wrong committed by the Constituent Assembly by amending Article 370 so as to empower the Parliament of India to legislate on the subjects which were included expressly by Maharaja Hari Singh namely, Defence, Foreign Affairs and Communication with Allied Matters on 26th October, 1947 in the presence of Shri V.P. Menon at Amar Mahal, Jammu, the winter capital of J&K.

Those who participated in the pushpanjali celebration included Rajiv Jolly Khosla, Romesh Khajuria, Om Kishan, Dildar Hussain Beig, Kali Ram Tomar, Bhawani Maharaj, B.R.Pal, K.K.Raghav, Swami Omji, Nancy Koul, Advocate D.Vidyanandam, Azgar Khan, A.J.Rajan and others.

New Delhi NPP held protest at Jantar Mantar demanding imposition of Governor Rule in J&K

Presented the following Memorandum to the Speaker

Petition to the Hon’ble Speaker, Lok Sabha

New Delhi

Sub:-Petition to the Hon’ble Speaker to introduce amendment in Article 370 for the safety, security and integrity of the nation.

 

Hon’ble Speaker, Madam,

Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party is submitting the following amendment in Article 370 of the Constitution of India to be introduced and carried in the Constitution of India in the interest of national integrity, security and unity of India.

It is submitted that a temporary provision under the name and style, “Temporary provision-Article 370” was inserted in the Constitution of India as a temporary faith at the time of promulgation of the Constitution of India on 26th January, 1950. This Article was temporary and heavily defended by the Chairman of the Constituent Assembly Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar. This was assured that this provision was temporary and would not continue long.

The blunder committed by the Constituent Assembly cannot be ignored by keeping State of J&K out of the Union of India and the State ruler Maharaja Hari Singh was forced to continue as Ruler. J&K was only state which was not merged into the Union of India by the Constituent Assembly. This blunder has proved a disaster for the national unity and the Parliament has not till date declared the merger of J&K with the Union of India.

That Article 370 has turned out to becancer’ in the heart of the Constitution of India and the responsibility for this tragedy lies on the Parliament of India which has failed to take appropriate action in 67 years or so.

The Panthers Party urged on the Hon’ble Speaker to introduce amendment in Article 370 in the Constitution of India by deleting Clause (3) of Article 370 which bars the supreme power of the Parliament to amend any (a) provision of Article 370.

It is submitted that India is one from J&K to Kanyakumari and therefore one nation cannot be governed by the separate Constitution. The Parliament of India is fully competent to amend Article 370 and extend the domain of the Constitution of India from Kashmir to Kanyakumari with one flag and one constitution.

demo-370The Panthers Party would like to submit before the Parliament that the Parliament should act boldly in the interest of unity, integrity and sovereignty of India from J&K to Kanyakumari. The power of Parliament to legislate in respect of the subjects mentioned in List-I of Schedule-VII should be restored in respect of J&K which acceded to the Union of India under the seal and signatures of the then ruler of J&K, Maharaja Hari Singh. This decision of the ruler of J&K was in accordance with the dictates of the Instrument of Accession. Similar Instruments of Accession signed by 577 Rulers/Maharajas/Nawabs of their respective states were accepted by the Constituent Assembly keeping J&K away but expelled the Maharaja from J&K state for personal vengeance.

            The Parliament of India must exercise its supreme power to amend temporary provision of Article 370 which is possible only by a majority vote as this is an ordinary amendment to amend only a temporary provision. Parliament of India under the leadership of Prime Minister Morarji Desai removed right to property (Article 31) from the Chapter of Fundamental Rights. If Parliament can amend a provision relating to fundamental rights, what stops that Parliament to amend/remove a temporary provision (Article 370) which was inserted into the Constitution for only avenging the ruler of Kashmir for personal vendetta.

            The Panthers Party would like to make a strong appeal to Hon’ble Members of Parliament to take this most needed step to ensure that there is one Constitution and one Flag for the entire Union of India from Kashmir to Kanyakumari and Gujarat to Nagaland. The people in J&K have been suffering for want of fundamental rights which are not applicable to the residents of J&K as the fundamental rights are not available in the so-called Constitution of J&K.

            This is strong submission by J&K National Panthers Party that the residents of J&K being citizens of India may be extended all fundamental rights without any delay. There is a need to dissolve the present Assembly in J&K, dismiss the Government in the state and invoke Section 92 of the J&K Constitution so that the Governor Rule is imposed without any delay to ensure return of peace and fundamental rights to every citizen of India residing in J&K.

            With warm regards and hopes for justice,

Yours sincerely,

 

Prof.Bhim Singh

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.
