Panthers activists hold protest at Jantar Mantar, urge President to impose Governor Rule in J&K

Several Panthers Party activists held a massive demonstration at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi demanded dismissal of J&K government and imposition of Governor Rule without any delay. The protest was led by JKNPP President, Shri Balwant Singh Mankotia, ex-MLA and joined by several senior leaders of Panthers Party including M/s. Rajiv Jolly Khosla, Delhi Pradesh President, Romesh Khajuria, its Vice President, Surjit Singh Guleria, Dildar Hussain Beg, General Secretaries, Kuldeep Kumar, Ms. Neelam Thakur, Mehfooz Khan, Secretaries and others.
Mr. Balwant Singh Mankotia came from J&K to hold this protest to draw attention of the Central leadership and the government about the deteriorating situation in J&K following utter failure of the BJP-PDP government to enforce existing laws and the provisions of the Ranbir Penal Code which command that there shall be no killing of bovine animals or cows in J&K and make such killing as offence under Ranbir Penal Code for over 150 years. Mr. Mankotia said that in J&K there was no controversy on such laws protecting cow and bovine animals in J&K as the people respected each others sentiments and there was no conflict. He said the Govt. of J&K wanted to browbeat the Centre and spread communal hatred all over the country by using the Supreme Court of India as its political platform by moving an Appeal against J&K High Court orders in the Supreme Court. He expressed satisfaction on the decision of the Supreme Court of India to return the case back to the High Court by rejecting government’s appeal before the court.
Mr. Mankotia appealed to the President of India on behalf of the Panthers Party and the people of J&K and its civil society to advice the Governor of J&K without any delay to invoke Section 92 of J&K Constitution to impose Governor Rule so that fresh free and fair elections could be held and the communal and the sectarian forces shall be exposed of its dangerous and anti-national designs.
The Panthers Party also submitted a memorandum (Attached) to Shri Pranab Mukherjee, President of India and Shri Rajnath Singh, the Union Home Minister in this regard charging the State government of its utter failure to enforce the state laws and the provisions of the Ranbir Penal Code to maintain communal harmony and ensure protection to all citizens.

Jagjeet Singh in Jammu yesterday while the people were protesting against police.
