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

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.

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.
