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.

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.

Bhim Singh’s rejoinder to CM Mufti Coalition with BJP, a fraud with Jammu

Reacting strongly on the statement made by J&K Chief Minister on the so- called compulsion of coalition with BJP, Prof. Brim singh said that no one can bluff all the people all the times. He rejected Mufti’s claim that the CM was concerned with the problems of the people of Jammu Pardesh and he joined RSS (BJP) to ensure equitable treatment and share to the people of Jammu.

          NPP supremo questioned the Chief Minister as to what happened to the issue of ( 1)Delimitation of Assembly Constituencies which he had agreed in 2002 with NPP and Congress to hold if he becomes Chief Minister with that Coalition (Congress and NPP). (2) What happened to that Delimitation when his Govt opposed NPP petition in suprem Court. (3)What happened to the plight and Miseries of 15 lacs POK and PAK refuges when Mufti had signed CMP with congress and NP. (4) What happened to the AIIMS at Jammu which was declared by his Govt. (5) It is great that 21000 crores has been airmarked for Ladakh , what about Jammu Pardesh ?. (6) Kashmiry Migrants have been sanctioned 7 ½ Lacs for house for each family whereas Jammu Migrants have been starving and rotting in the jungles of Jammu forests. Those camping in Talwara have been denied electricity and drinking water. Suprem Court judgment to provide Jammu Migrants relief at par with Kashmiry Migrants has been dumped in to the Kashmiry dustbin. (7) What about the comprehensive settlement of POK, PAK Refuges?. (8) Tourism for Kashmir only in Pahalgaon and Gulmarg, The places which were selected by Maharaja Hari Singh and developed. What about Sanasar , Kishtiwar, Bhadarwah, Poonch, Panchari , Bani, Basantgarh, Sudhmahadev , Noore Chhumb and other places in Jammu Pardesh which had heavily voted for BJP.

This speaks in volumes by Mufti is using BJP as its crutches to rule. This is the only way to keep Jammu Prdesh away and let its people starve and be deprived of Justice and equity.

Prof. Bhim Singh called on the Panthers Party workers and the People of Jammu pardesh to joined hand with NPP for the creation of Jammu state so that we shall cease to be serfs of the colonial masters riding the state with BJP crutches .

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

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.
