Kashmiri political parties stand exposed The only way out is Governor Rule

Prof.Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of National Panthers Party expressed shock on the so-called J&K delegation meeting with the President of India saying that the delegation did not include any representatives of the respective parties from Jammu Pradesh or Ladakh. This was a delegation of the political parties which have been exploiting the Kashmiries for nearly seven decades in J&K. NPP Supremo said that the President of India could not grant audience to the Panthers Party or any other political group from Jammu Pradesh or Ladakh for the reason best known to the Hon’ble President.

Prof.Bhim Singh asked Omar Abdullah what he means by ‘political issue’ and what is its solution. He asserted that the political issue is that people of J&K have been governed ruthlessly and suppressed by bullets and police force right from 1947 after the state’s accession by Maharaja Hari Singh that took place on 26thOctober, 1947. NPP Supremo asked the leaders of the Congress and NC who met the President today to tell the world the names of the murderers of the students in Jammu Science College in 1966. Who murdered students in Kishtwar who were demanding a college. Who killed students in Poonch in 1978? Prof.Bhim Singh said that the so-called rulers of J&K have been using bullets, guns and horrifying detention centres to suppress the voice of the students and youth in Ladakh, Kashmir and Jammu for decades. He said that he has been arguing with national flag in his hands and preaching non-violence. In spite of that he (Bhim Singh) remained in jails for over eight years. Even as a Congress MLA in 1977 he remained in the lock-up on the detention order when Sheikh Abdullah was the Chief Minister. He said that he was caged in jails by almost every Chief Minister except during the Chief Ministership of Omar Abdullah because he spent most of the times in All India Institute of Medical Sciences in a patient.

Prof.Bhim Singh expressed surprise that the President of India could not make it convenient to grant audience to the representatives of the Panthers Party which is a recognized political party in J&K whereas he was kind to receive nearly 20 political leaders from the Valley only who had no charter of demand in their hands except creating confusion and helping enemies of India to strengthen their belief that J&K was apolitical problem.

Prof.Bhim Singh said that the Panthers Party has no legislator in the Assembly in J&K because the BJP joined hands with the Kashmiri leaders to rig the last Assembly polls which has been exposed today. Prof.Bhim Singh urged the political parties, nationalist leadership and those who have been supporting the movement to provide equitable right to the people of the three regions of the state namely, Ladakh, Kashmir and Jammu Pradesh. Prof.Bhim Singh said that Article 370 is the only problem and there is urgent need to amend Article 370 so as to empower Parliament of India to legislate on the matters listed in List-I of Schedule-VII of the Indian Constitution. How J&K can be integral part of the Union of India when the Parliament is deprived of the power to legislate even in respect of defence, foreign affairs and communications, the three subjects which Maharaja Hari Singh included in the Instrument of Accession on 26th October, 1947 like other rulers of 577 states. Prof.Bhim Singh urged the President of India to use his exclusive power vested in him under Article 370 read with Section 92 of the J&K Constitution. The Governor is the only solution and resolution at this time.

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

PM Modi fails to deliver at Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine conclave in Katra

“It was all anti-climax at the end of PM Modi’s speech at the Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine University conclave this afternoon as Prime Minister Modi failed to mention a word about the PHE daily wagers numbering about 30,000, failed to address the sufferings and miserable plight of the hills of Mata Vaishno Devi now called as ‘baridars’ and have been literally turned as beggars in their own land. These baridars and their ancestors have been looking after the shrine for centuries without any benefit or gain.

          Several hundred Katra activists including their panches and sarpanches of Katra areas surrounding the university have been kept away under the threats of handcuffs by the police who have been protesting peacefully for their causes.”

          This was the reaction of Prof.Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of National Panthers Party from New Delhi camp office about PM Modi’s visit to Katra and his conquest of the peasantry and the Vaishno Devi owners who have been suffering for decades and demanding justice and equity.

          Prof.Bhim Singh wanted to know from Prime Minister Modi why he failed to mention the plight of the people who have been suffering at the hands of his half-a-partner with PDP in the state. Prime Minister could not mention a word about the suffering daily wagers in PHE, he could not mention a word about the miserable situation the masters of Vaishno Devi Shrine have been facing since their humiliating ouster. Prime Minister also could not address the open meeting and had to direct the security forces to prepare a security covered up hall in the Katra University  ground costing more than, as estimated, Rs.20 crores.

          Prof.Bhim Singh wanted to know from Modi about the plight of the labourers working on different projects for the shrine and for the service condition of the Shrine Board employees. He wanted to know the benefit of the latest hospital to the Katra division and the poor people. He also expressed surprise that Prime Minister could not open the Stadium by travelling about 500 meters ahead from the Shrine Board camp. He said that Prime Minister pressed the switch to open to perform the inauguration of the stadium. Was it due to the security risk?

          Prof.Bhim Singh expressed surprise that Prime Minister of India could not say a word to appeal the students of Baba Ghulam Shah Badshah University in Rajouri which was closed a few days back because of students unrest. The Prime Minister failed to say a word giving call to the students and youth in the Valley who have been staging demonstration against the state. Prof.Bhim Singh wondered whether Prime Minister Modi had any faint idea about the situation that has developed in different areas of J&K?

          Prof.Bhim Singh hoped that Prime Minister shall call an open meeting of the representative of all the recognized political parties in J&K including the representatives of the national parties functioning in J&K so that justice is done to all residents of J&K from all three regions. He said that Article 370 is a stumbling block in the way of integration of J&K with the rest of the country. He wondered why Prime Minister Modi is silent on this subject?

Bhim Singh calls on nationalist forces to support NPP Bandh Call on 7th April to demolish anti-India seedlings

Addressing a huge rally at Jantar Mantar this afternoon, Prof.Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of National Panthers Party called on nationalist forces, groups and students and youth to jointly support the Bandh Call on 7th April, 2016 in Jammu Pradesh given by J&K National Panthers Party to strengthen the secular, nationalist and progressive forces in the State of J&K which is facing a serious threat by the anti-national, anti-India and communal forces in the state of J&K.

          Prof.Bhim Singh strongly condemned the state machinery in J&K for its total failure to silence the voice against national integration to please a handful of elements who are supported, sponsored and financed by frustrated, anti-national and corrupt elements in the state. Prof.Bhim Singh said that he has been hearing all these nonsense from 1957 when he joined GGM Science College as a student. He blamed the communal and foreign agents operating at the behest of ISI and other foreign saboteurs who intend to destabilize India because many countries in the West are not happy to watch India growing faster and joining the family of developed countries in the world.

          Prof.Bhim Singh said that all the nationalist forces including Ladakhies, Kashmiries, Dogras, Paharies, Buddhists and all are committed for the development of the state which is possible only by the reorganization of the state which is possible through the amendment in Article 370 of the Indian Constitution.

Prof.Bhim Singh said that Bandh Call given by the Panthers Party with the support and cooperation of several organizations is to ensure justice to every individual and group or groups of people in J&K. He said this Bandh Call, though given at very short notice, yet is highly important to convey to Delhi that the people of J&K deserve justice and equity at all levels.

Prof.Bhim Singh appealed to all the youth, students, political organizations, traders, employees, the media persons and the working class to show unity to slap the enemies of the country to prove that India is one from Kashmir to Kanyakumari.

President’s Rule in Uttarakhand, massacre of Constitution

The norms and the principles laid down in the Constitution have been betrayed by the men who matter in the North & South Blocks, New Delhi. Uttarakhand episode shall be a living example how the mandate of the Constitution and rule of law has been hijacked by the South Block with an intention to grab power by hook or crook in a state governed by the political party other than the BJP. What happened in Uttarakhand governed by the Congress party needs an objective analysis by the legal Pundits who have been watching performance of the Modi government at the Centre.

Firstly, this is important to have a look into the composition of the political parties inside the Legislative Assembly of Uttarakhand. The Assembly has 70 elected Members. One MLA is nominated from the Anglo-Indian community in the State. The total number was 71. The Congress had 36 MLAs and naturally the government was run by the Congress Party under the leadership of Shri Harish Rawat, a veteran and honest leader of the party. The BJP’s masters in Delhi conspired to topple the government in the Himalayan States for the reasons to expand their RSS bases. Assam is going to the polls. Manipur is in trouble. Uttarakhand has faced the wrath of Modi rule in the Centre. Assembly elections were due after about 12 months in Uttarakhand but the BJP was in a hurry to topple Harish government so that the Assembly election could be held under Modi rule for the reasons which need not any explanation at this moment.

To implement Modi’s policy to dislodge secular governments in the States, it managed to buy 9 MLAs of the Congress Party with an intention to take over power in the Himalayan State where Panduvas ruled nearly 5000 years back. The first blunder which the leadership under Prime Minister Modi committed was an utter violation of the Defection Law. Nine MLAs could not be rescued under any imaginative stance of legal norms and the Defection Law. It was not a split. Not even 1/3rd MLAs could be bought or lured by the Modi power or money. Nine MLAs could not be defended under any legal norms or rule. It was only Modi rule that defended them. The Speaker of the Legislative Assembly, Mr. Govind SinghKunjwal was fully competent and absolutely empowered under the Defection Law enacted by the Parliament (applicable to the State of Uttarakhand except J&K) to expell the nine defecting MLAs from the Legislative Assembly. This Order of the Speaker could be challenged before High Court but there is no legal authority with the High Court to restore the status of the disqualified 9 MLAs.

The present status in the Assembly has to be viewed with clear spectrum of constitutional mandate. There are (71-9 MLAs = 62). The Chief Minister, Shri Harish Rawat needs 62/2 +1  = 32. The Governor had fixed floor test on March 28, 2016 to decide whether Shri Harish Rawat enjoyed the majority. One MLA is nominated from the Anglo-Indian community namely Mr. Russel Valentine Gardener who has no voting right which is settled rule in the business of Parliament. That shows that Shri Harish Rawat needed only 31 MLAs to prove his majority, in the Assembly. Shri Harish Rawat has 27 sitting MLAs and support of 6 other MLAs from small groups etc. Shri Harish Rawat therefore has on this day, 1stApril, 2016, 33 MLAs. The Speaker being the Presiding Officer holds the mandate to decide the issues within the Legislative Assembly in respect of the proceedings within the Assembly. This is settled law.

The legality of the declared to adjourn the Assembly session on 28th March was illegal and malafide, a Division Bench of the Uttarakhand High Court is not only under question but cannot be accepted by any measures or the scope of the Constitution. The High Court could not have deferred the floor test from March 28 to another day after a week. This Order of the High Court could not be justified by any stretch of the imagination as it violated the principles of natural justice, rule of law and even the credibility of the judicial standards. The Congress leaders had erred in the first instance to go to the High Court which is far away from Dehradun and located in a difficult terrain in Nainital. Secondly, the Congress legal barons should have consulted the leading men in profession like Shri K.Venugopal and Shri Ram Jethmalani. The Congress legal advisors failed to comprehend the situation which was being directly monitored by Shri Narendra Modi, the super man, in the Central government. This matter may come next week before the Supreme Court on a petition filed by Shri M.L. Sharma, Advocate which has questioned the Presidential Proclamation which was imposed in Uttarakhand. The Supreme Court may consider the issues which have emerged following the Uttarakhand episode. Yet the important point of law shall remain unanswered how Uttarakhand was placed under President’s Rule, once the Governor of the State had directed to hold Assembly session to give an opportunity to Shri Harish Rawat to prove his majority on March 28. S.R. Bommai’s decision of the Supreme Court of March 11, 1994 has been squeezed by a Division Bench of the High Court of Uttarakhand by overruling the decision of the Governor of the State to hold Assembly session on March 28. This is mockery of the law and betrayal of the mandate of the Constitution of India. Can Prime Minister Modi defend himself in the present case of Uttarakhand?
