NPP urge UHM to advice J&K Governor to impose Governor Rule to save impending disaster

NPP has urged Shri Rajnath Singh, the Union Home Minister to advice Shri N.N.Vohra, the Governor of J&K to invoke Section 92 of J&K Constitution to impose Governor Rule in the state without any delay. The Panthers Party has been holding peaceful protests in J&K seeking intervention of the Union Government to impose Governor Rule in the national interest and the security of the state. Prof.Bhim Singh said that the situation has completely gone beyond the control of the state government since July 8, 2016 and there is no hope in the administration of J&K to revive the situation in the national interest and security of the state.

          The Secretariat of JKNPP has appealed to all political organizations and those who believe in peace and security of the state to appeal the Governor to impose Governor Rule and take over the administration  in the national interest without any delay.

          Prof.Bhim Singh appealed the people of the Valley particularly the youth and the students to join hands with the Panthers Party to ensure that peace is restored in the Valley and justice is delivered to everybody.

          Panthers Party demanded that use of pellets (lead bullets) be banned (stopped) forthwith by declaring it as unlawful and against the letter and spirit of principles of natural justice and human rights. Prof.Bhim Singh said that use of pellets is not only inhuman but a dangerous weapon which cannot be permissible in a civilized society that too India which has been an ocean of love and peace for thousands of years. The Panthers Party has also decided to move a petition before the Supreme Court of India for the total ban on the use of pellets/bullets/deadly weapons against the civil activists to punish them. Such methods were used by the Israeli army/police against the Palestinians and the entire world had condemned the use of pellets/lead bullets. This is utterly against the humanity and peace loving policy of Bharata.

Prof.Bhim Singh, Sr. Advocate also appeared with Mr. K.K. Venugopal, Sr. Advocate appearing for J&K National Panthers Party leaders namely, Ms.Anita Thakur (General Secretary), Mr. H.C. Jalmeria, Advocate (General Secretary) & Mr. P.K. Ganjoo (Sr. Journalist) whose writ petition was admitted by the Supreme Court in 2007. The Panthers Party activists are demanding criminal proceedings against the J&K Police and others who had assaulted the Panthers Party leaders and other migrants while they were peacefully marching from Reasi to Delhi to stage a dharna in front of the Parliament of India seeking implementation of Supreme Court order/ judgment dated July, 2007. The Supreme Court had directed J&K Govt. after hearing an SLP filed by J&K Govt. against the order of the High Court that the migrants of Jammu province should be given relief at par with Kashmiri migrants. The Supreme Court in its order had also directed the Union of India and J&K Govt. to pay all the arrears (between 2004-2007) to the Jammu Migrants who had not been paid/provided even a penny as relief. The High Court of J&K in its order dated 2002 had directed the Union of India and the State Govt. to pay relief to the migrants of Jammu province at par with Kashmiri Migrants. The State of J&K went in appeal before the Supreme Court. Prof.Bhim Singh represented the Jammu Migrants. The two governments refused to implement the order.

         

J&K Govt. went in appeal against the order of the J&K High Court which was rejected by the Surpeme Court with a clear order to pay a compensation/relief to the Jammu Migrants at par with Kashmiri Migrants. The Supreme Court had also directed that arrears due to the Jammu Migrants should also be paid immediately. The J&K Govt. had admitted before the Supreme Court that the arrears between 2004 to 2007 were calculated to be Rs.21 crores. The two governments refused to pay the arrears admitting that there were 2021 migrant families of Jammu. The matter was taken before the Legislative Council by Prof.Bhim Singh, Member of the Legislative Council and Govt. of J&K had accepted that the arrears due to the Jammu Migrants amounted to over Rs.21 crores. The Govt. of J&K refused to pay any arrears. Till today Jammu Migrants have not been given identity cards as migrants. About 400 families who have been provided some broken accommodation at Reasi Hydel Project, Talwara were not paid regularly since 2007 also. Prof.Bhim Singh informed the Supreme Court in its contempt petition. Aggrieved by unjust and contemptuous approach of the Union of India and State Govt. the Jammu Migrants camping at Talwara camps took a peaceful march on Talwara to Delhi to seek justice from Govt. of India as per directions of the the Supreme Court of India.

          The Govt. of J&K assaulted the Panthers Party activists who were accompanying the Jammu Migrants from Reasi to Delhi. The migrants were assaulted and the Panthers Party activists including Ms. Anita Thakur & Mr. H.C. Jalmeria, Advocate (General Secretaries) and a Sr. Journalist, Mr. P.K. Ganjoo were assaulted, beaten and detained.

          The case has been pending before the Supreme Court since 2007 since the writ petition was admitted and Rule was issued with clear direction to pay all the balance arrears to the Jammu Migrants. The matter had come before a Division Bench of the Supreme Court headed by Justice T.S. Thakur.

          The case was listed for final hearing after about seven years after the Rule was issued in 2007. The Division Bench after hearing Shri K.K. Venugopal, Sr. Advocate for the Panthers Party petitioners directed the counsel of Govt. of J&K to file any document or the film before court within two weeks and provide copies to the petitioners.

The Division Bench headed by the Chief Justice directed the Counsel for J&K Govt. to provide the materials, the documentary films to the petitioners. Shri Venugopal on the other hand presented the documentary films showing brutal attack on the Panthers Party petitioners and other workers while they were requesting the police to allow them to continue their march towards Delhi for the sake of justice and equity.

Panthers hold special session in Delhi on 33rd Foundation Anniversary of the party

foundatinday-delhiA special session of the NPP was held in New Delhi, capital of India this afternoon to mark 33rd Foundation Anniversary of the party which was founded by Prof.Bhim Singh 33 years back on 23rd March, 1982 marking its rise on the day of martyrdom of Shaheed-e-Azam S. Bhagat Singh, Rajguru & Sukhdev in 1931.
Several hundred NPP volunteers took oath that each Panther all over the country shall fight for, ‘Sabke Saath–Haq-va-Insaaf’. The party volunteers also pledged that they shall fight from the streets to the legislatures and to the Supreme Court to seek justice to every depressed human being, society, class, creed, religion and region. The pledge was administered by party’s Supremo, Prof.Bhim Singh. The volunteers also pledged that they shall individually and collectively uphold the unity, integrity and sovereignty of the country and shall not allow any person or government to disturb centuries’ old composite culture which has been the light of India’s civilization. They also pledged to continue their fight for Ultimate Revolution at home and abroad with full strength to mobilize international opinion for complete disarmament, global peace and development.
The Panthers Party also expressed full solidarity with the people in the Arab world in their struggle against colonialism and outside interference. It expressed full solidarity with the people of Palestine in this struggle to establish an independent and sovereign state as was agreed by the big Nations in Oslo & Washington Accords signed between Palestinian Hero Yasir Arafat and Israeli Prime Minister. It hoped that Mr. Benjamin Netanyahu shall give up his extreme anti-Palestinian posture and accept the UN Resolutions on Palestine and Arab world which include 242, 338 and others.
Prof.Bhim Singh in his address to the Panthers Party activists called on them to complete the unfinished agenda on the internal conflicts in India including that of Jammu and Kashmir. He said that amendment in Article 370 is one of the main missions of the Panthers Party for full integration of J&K with the rest of the country. He also pleaded for the implementation of Rajiv Gandhi Accord with the Assamese leadership signed in 1985. He also expressed sympathy with the people in the North-East and other parts of the country for their equal participation and equal opportunities in the developmental works, employment, education and other fields.
   The prominent Panthers Party leaders who participated included Rajiv Jolly Khosla, Om Kishan, Shyam Sunder Sharma, Sanjay Kanaujia, Swaran Singh Yadav, Hari Babu Kaushik, Javed Qureshi, B.K.

NPP Supremo’s protest letter to Kerry Asks US to tame Israel in Gaza, Palestine

Prof.Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of National Panthers Party & Member of National Integration Council, besides, Chairman of Indo-Palestine Friendship Society dashed a strong letter to Mr. John Kerry, US Secretary of State on visit to India demanding immediate action of the US to rein in Israel so that the genocide of the Palestinians in Gaza shall stop forthwith. In his letter, the Panthers Party Supremo accused the US for supporting Israel in its misdeeds and barbaric aggression against the people in Gaza, Palestine. Prof.Bhim Singh reminded the Foreign Minister of the US that Oslo agreements were finalized in the White House on 13th September, 1993 in the presence of the then US President, Bill Clinton assuring statehood to Palestine by 1996. Both the leaders namely Prime Minister of Israel, Yitzhak Rabin and Palestinian leader, Yasir Arafat had put in their signatures on the agreement in the presence of the US President.

Prof.Bhim Singh also reminded the US President, Mr. Barack Hussein Obama that Israel violated the agreement and has trashed it into the dustbin of history. He said that Israel had agreed in the presence of US President that the commands of resolutions 242, 338 asking Israel to withdraw from all Arab occupied territories shall be implemented. Instead, says Prof.Bhim Singh, Israel has started genocide of the Palestinians in full view of the whole world and the United Nations itself has failed to act in the spirit of the UN Charter.

Prof.Bhim Singh sought US intervention without delay in his letter addressed to Secretary of State, Mr. John Kerry. The letter is reproduced for the information as below;
   “It was expected that the US shall put its efforts to defuse the tension that has arisen following the barbaric bombing by Israel on Gaza, Palestine resulting into genocide and massacre of hundreds of Palestinians including women, children and the old. Instead the Obama administration has declared that the US shall continue its support and arms aid to Israel.

You have been in India for the past three days yet you have chosen to condemn barbaric bombardment killing hundreds of innocent Palestinians in Gaza by Israel. I hope the United States remembers that it was in Washington DC on 13th September, 1993 when US President Bill Clinton hosted a grand feast at Presidential House and witnessed the signing of an accord by the PLO Chief Yasir Arafat and Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin which declared, among so many things, that Palestine shall be granted statehood by 1996. In the meantime all the issues pertaining to Jerusalem, Palestinian refugees, Israeli settlements, security and borders would be settled permanently. The entire responsibility was taken by the US President in this regard.

The principles of the Oslo Accords I & II strictly provided that all Israeli forces from Gaza and West Bank shall be withdrawn no later than May 1996.

This was also decided that for the transitional period not exceeding five years all issues shall be settled permanently on the basis of UN Security Council Resolutions 242, 338 among others.
I would like to remind the United States of America that Israel did not care to respect this agreement and literally violated the principles of the accords. This is evident that Yasir Arafat was confined to the second floor of his Ram Allah headquarters. The allegation that he was given slow poisoning has never been denied by Israel or by the United States. His death created a vacuum in the political horizon of Palestine.

It is unfortunate that Israel never respected its own agreements and violated principles of accords whereas the United States and the entire western world continued its support to the usurper of the land of Palestine and the Arab countries.

Since you are visiting India, the Panthers Party feels its duty rather obligation to bring these hard facts to your notice so that the people of the United States may realize that the people of India stand with the people of Palestine and hope and trust that the President of the US Mr. Barack Hussein Obama shall give first priority for the implementation of the mission which his predecessor, President Bill Clinton launched in 1993.

I know the US is under Zionist pressure for the reasons best known to the White House and the people all over the world. Yet this is in the interest for the world peace and human dignity that the United States of America upholds the principles of mutual existence and puts its efforts for a genuine peace all over the world especially in Middle-East today. “

Prof.Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of National Panthers Party & Member of National Integration Council while addressing the Panthers protestors regretted the silence of Modi sarkar which has been watching the genocide of the Palestinians in silence in Gaza, Palestine for several days. The NPP Supremo accused the Modi government for taking a ‘U’ turn in India’s foreign policy vis-à-vis Palestine in particular and the Arab world in general.
He also accused the United Nations for watching the death and destruction in Gaza sponsored by Israeli planes and bombers in utter violation of a dozen of UN resolutions commending Israel to withdraw its armed forces from all Arab-occupied territories. He cited resolution no. 242, 338 and several others which have been consistenisrael-demo-2tly violated by Israel being backed by the US and European countries.
Prof.Bhim Singh also appealed to the NAM countries movement to intervene in this situation to save genocide of the Palestinians and massacre of humanity by Israel.
