Prof.Bhim Singh in reply to a question on coalition/adjustment with any other party said that the parties which are looking for power and money to rob and rule always look for coalition partner sacrificing their commitment to the cause of the people just for the sake of votes and power.
Prof.Bhim Singh said, “I with great missionaries in J&K founded J&K National Panthers Party with a mission to eradicate corruption, communalism, nepotism and illiteracy and destroy the seedling of communalism and sectarianism from the society so that India of the great dreams of Subhash Chander Bose, Mahatma Gandhi and other freedom fighters could be realized. So that India shall read the word in establishing world with complete disarmament, peace in human love. So that there are no more wars, spill of human bloods and bullets.” 
 
On Jammu and Kashmir  
Addressing the media persons from the crowded Jantar Mantar Headquarters, Prof.Bhim Singh appealed the people, particularly the youth and students in J&K to act with wisdom, vision and courage to defeat the forces which intend to destabilize Bharat just to destabilize India so that the Anglo-American Bloc succeeds in their Dixon Plan. The Anglo-American Bloc has been using all its tools to create unrest and sabotage India’s unity ever since 1947.
The NPP Supremo appealed the people of J&K particularly the youth of Kashmir to ensure that communal harmony is maintained at all costs lest the foreign power get a chance to disturb peace. 
In reply to other questions of the latest situation following the ban on cow slaughter has erupted in J&K, the NPP Supremo expressed full faith in the secular character of the people in the state and said that a law was enacted in the state by the Maharaja nearly 100 years ago in full confidence of the people. He said the Constituent Assembly formed in 1951 under the leadership of Sheikh Mohd. Abdullah approved several royal decrees including ban on cow slaughter and state subject. The Jamat-e-Islami MLAs in the Assembly, including Ali Shah Geelani, never raised any objection to this law universally accepted by the people of J&K to show respect to the religious sentiments of non-Muslim fraternity. He said that the Kashmiri Muslims always showed their tolerance, faith in religious co-existence and respect. He praised the Kashmiri Muslim majority for providing all kinds of protection to the minorities in Kashmir during the India’s partition, 1947. He said the Muslims and the non-Muslims have been co-existed as threads interwoven in a cloth. A unique integrated society called Kashmiriat. He said whatever has happened this time it is there because of power hungry politicians who want to create anarchy at any cost by trying to communalize the issues as they have failed on all other fronts in their campaign to provoke violence in Kashmir.
He appealed to the people of the Valley in particular to ensure that communal harmony is not disturbed and the sentiments of the neighbourers are not hurt which is teaching of ‘Islam’. 
Prof.Bhim Singh held the present PDP-BJP government responsible for present disorder, anarchy, lawlessness and rise in militancy in the state. He reiterated Panthers Party’s commitment to uphold the sanctities of Kashmiriat, Ladhakiat and Dogriat by the reorganization of the state and declared that the party shall launch a movement from Kashmir to Kanyakumari in their demands seeking;  
1. Dismissal of J&K Govt. and imposition of Governor’s Rule,
2. Amendment of Article 370 and revocation of Article 35(A).
3. Reorganization of J&K by establishing ‘Twin States’, i). Kashmir Valley & ii). Jammu Pradesh.

4. Dissolution of the present Assembly and fresh Assembly elections under Governor Rule.

JKNPP holds massive protest at Jantar Mantar seeking relief & compensation for Jammu (Talwara) Migrants at par with Kashmir Migrants

Intensifying the momentum for ensuring the rights and justice to Jammu (Talwara) migrants Panthers Party held a massive protest demonstration at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi spearheaded by Chairman of JKNPP, Shri Harsh Dev Singh, State President-JKNPP Shri Balwant Singh Mankotia and State President Young Panthers, Shri Yashpaul Kundal along with more than 500 activists here on Tuesday.  The indignant protestors raised slogans of-“Jammu migrants se Bhed Bhaav…Band karo, band karo”, “Talwara migrants ke saath….Insaaf karo, insaaf karo”, “Dokhey aur Zulam Ki Rajneeti …Nahin Chalegi, Nahin Chalegi” and “State government… Hai Hai”. A delegation led by Mr. Harsh Dev Singh, Mr. Balwant Singh Mankotia and Mr. Yashpaul Kundal under police escort, submitted a detailed memorandum to the Union Minister for Home, Shri Rajnath Singh for seeking immediate relief and compensation for Talwara Migrants at par with Kashmir Migrants. Later, hundreds of protestors led by Balwant Singh Mankotia marched towards the Parliament but they were stopped and restrained by the Delhi Police from proceeding further. Moreover, Mr. Mankotia along with six Panthers Party leaders namely Rajiv Jolly Khosla, S. Paramjit Singh Marshall, Gagan Pratap Singh, Sham Gorkha, Neeraj Gupta, S. Randhir Singh were arrested and detained in the Parliament Street Police Station.

While addressing the huge gathering Mr. Harsh Dev Singh said that more than 2000 families of Jammu (Talwara) migrants have been languishing in Talwara  in District Reasi who were forced to flee from their respective homes because of the  prevalent militancy .He said that the Panthers party fought against the J&K government for six years in the Supreme Court yelling for  the justice to be delivered to these families and the Apex court in 2006 finally directed the State government to pay all the arrears amounting to 21 crores to the Jammu migrants and provide the relief to them at par with the Kashmiri migrants but  to the dismay no penny has been paid to them so far. In fact, they have been ignored, forgotten and discriminated by the Central and the State governments.

Mr. Harsh Dev Singh pointed out that earlier BJP government in the Centre raised relief for Kashmiri Pandits from Rs. 400/- to Rs. 1000/- per person per month and Rs. 1600/- to 4000/- per family per month and now it has been raised from Rs.4000/- to Rs. 10,000/- per family per month where as Jammu migrants were completely kept out of this package. Moreover, the Central & the State Govts. released a special package for Kashmir Migrants for their rehabilitation in Kashmir Valley with sanctions of full expenses of their new houses and exclusive Kashmir Migrants Colony in the valley but on the contrary the Jammu migrants were ignored once again with the Governments of India and J&K State refusing even to provide them financial assistance to rebuild their houses which were destroyed by terrorists during terrorists from 1998 to 2002.

Mr. Balwant Singh Mankotia vociferously exhorted the state government to provide them relief in cash and kind at par with kashmiri Pandit migrants as directed by the Supreme Court along with all the arrears and the package which has been provided to the latter for their return and rehabilitation in their native villages with the guarantee that the relief shall continue in their favour for five years till their lands turns worth cultivation. He also demanded that all the unemployed Talwara migrants’ youth and children should be provided the same package, jobs and educational facilities which has been provided to the Kashmiri Pandit Migrants. Mankotia said that these migrants are also facing the wrath of acute shortage of power and water supply which has added to the woes of ailing, women and children and demanded early restoration of their regular supply in the camps at Talwara. Mankotia finally exhorted the Union government to provide all the relief and compensation to the Jammu (Talwara) migrants or else Panthers party shall intensify its stir in the days to come.

Mr. Yashpaul Kundal said that deprivation of Jammu region migrants in the matter of relief and rehabilitation is not only discriminatory against Jammu region but constitutes the highest from of huamn right violation. He regretted that the BJP government which had been creating a lot of hue and cry on the pathetic plight of Jammu migrants had completely disregarded them and denying them the much needed relief despite the Apex Court directions.

Prominent among those who led the protest included Balwan Singh, Chairman-Migrants Committee, Jagdev Singh, S. Paramjit Singh Marshall, Chamel Singh, Sumitra Devi, Taro Devi, Pawan Singh, Mahinder Singh, Gagan Pratap Singh, Sham Gorkha, Raghubir Singh, Sukhjit Singh, Arun Khajuria, Rajeshwar Singh, Udhay Veer Singh, Nirmal Kishore, Romesh Khajuria, S.
