FIR against Airlines dealing with domestic flights


Sub: FIR against Airlines dealing with domestic flights.

I as a State President of Delhi Pradesh Unit of National Panthers Party would like to request for registering an FIR (First Information Report) against the domestic airlines namely, Jet Airways, Air India, SpiceJet, Go & Indigo and others for having ruthlessly enhanced the air-fare on the domestic routes which is violative of the principles of natural justice and amounts to a fraud on the rule of law.
1.    That seveal Airlines taking advantage of Haryana’s unrest and protests, several Airlines operating in India under the rules and regulation settled by the Ministry of Aviation etc. of Govt. of India have violated the rules, the laws and have been playing fraud with the customers/passengers travelling from New Delhi to Chandigarh and some other places.
2.    The normal air-fare from New Delhi to Chandigarh is approximately below/around Rs.5000/-. The Jet Airways example has raised the economy fare for the air travel between New Delhi to Chandigarh to Rs.17,282 (Economy) and Rs.26,740 (Premiere) classes, which is evident from Annexure-P1.
3.    That the Jet Airways has announced the price list dealing with air-fare from New Delhi to Chandigarh on February 21,2016 (Annexure-P2) ranging between Rs.70,000 to 99,000. Similarly the air-fare of the same airline have been shown from Rs.42,000 to Rs.77,000/-. (Annexure-P3).
4.    That another paper cutting (P4) dated 21.02.2016 has raised the alarm on the spate of violence unleashed by Jat protesters demanding quotas has sent air fares on the Chandigarh-Delhi sector through the roof with the cheapest available one-way ticket for Monday selling for over Rs.99,000.
5.    That the Times of India New Delhi dated 23.02.2016 has in its story “As airfares soar, PM Modi frets”. This story also speaks of the discriminatory rise in airfare from Delhi to Chandigarh and also speaks about the discrimination being committed by several airlines including Jet Airways. (Annexure-P5).
6.    That the Panthers Party is led by several senior human right activists and strongly regrets for the failure of the Union of India to deal with those highway robbers who have been using their authority in violation of the principles of natural justice and the rule of law. Thus causing grave hurt to the fundamental and civil rights of the citizens of India and other persons by raising airfare for the local passengers by exploiting their compulsion and need under the circumstances.
7.    That this person filing this FIR is a state president of Delhi Pradesh National Panthers Party which is recognised party by the Election Commission of India and chaired by Prof.Bhim Singh, the Chief Patron of the party who is a senior advocate of the Supreme Court of India and Executive Chairman of the State Legal Aid Committee.
It is submitted that an appropriate FIR be registered against Jet Airways and other Airlines which have been flouting the rule of law and the principles of natural justice which amounted to robbing the passengers and an utter violation of The Prevention of Black Marketing and Maintenance of Supplies of Essential Commodities Act, 1980. (Annexures-P6 & P7).
It is submitted that the one-way, 45-minute flight is priced almost double that of a Delhi-London return flight that costs around Rs.46,000. A Delhi-New York return ticket costs around Rs.63,000. Airline sources said flights out of Chandigarh were fully booked as people were desperate to get out of the city.
“These are the last few seats available and they are being sold for a premium,” said an airline official who did not wish to be named. Across the board from economy to business class seats, prices showed a ten-fold jump, with a one-way ticket on travel portal makemytrip selling at Rs.99,128.”
It is requested that the appropriate FIR may be registered against the Indian Airlines mentioned here, Jet Airways and other Airlines who are involved in similar offences and are violating the principles of natural justice and the rule of law forthwith.
Thanking you,

JKNPP shall challenge it in Supreme Court : Judgment of J&K High Court on Article 370 unconstitutional

A meeting of the State Legal Aid Committee met in New Delhi today under the chairmanship of Prof.Bhim Singh which advised JKNPP to file a writ petition in the Supreme Court challenging the validity of the judgments of J&K High Court on Article 35(A) and 370.

Prof.Bhim Singh, Sr. Advocate and Executive Chairman of the State Legal Aid Committee described the two judgments of Srinagar Wing of J&K High Court dated 16.07.2015 and 09.10.2015 as violative of the Constitution and without jurisdiction of J&K High Court. Prof.Bhim Singh said that Srinagar Wing of the J&K High Court has acted beyond its authority and competence rather without any jurisdiction to deal with a matter pertaining to the Constitution of India which can only be dealt by the Parliament of India and none else.

Prof.Bhim Singh said that this judgment of High Court is also violative of Section 3 of the J&K Constitution which has mandated that J&K is and shall be integral part of India.

Several lawyers, jurists and notables from the civil society who attended the meeting appreciated the decision of the Panthers Party to file a writ petition before the Supreme Court of India challenging the validity of the two judgments of J&K High Court.

Prof.Bhim Singh has expressed surprise that PDP a ruling party in J&K has supported rather appreciated this judgment in spite of the fact that BJP which has been claiming to abolish Article 370 is sitting silent over the issue. He wanted Prime Minister Modi to come out on the issue so that the people of India shall no longer be exploited by BJP in the name of Article 370.

          Mr. Sanjoy Sachdev, former President of Delhi Pradesh Panthers Party, presently Chairman, Love Commandos and his General Secretary, Shri Harsh Malhotra presented bouquet of flowers with assurance that they and their companions are prepared for any sacrifice to ensure that enemies of peace, secularism and democracy shall be defeated under the leadership of NPP Supremo.

          Several ex-servicemen including Brigadiers, Colonels and Sr. retired Army Officers from different parts of the country signed the book of solidarity with Panthers Party appreciating the role of the Panthers Party to keep up the dignity of the national flag, constitution and integrity in J&K. Scores of ex-servicemen who had come to participate in the ‘One Rank One Pension’ rally at Jantar Mantar including several Kashmiri Pandit Migrants came to the newly set up camp office of J&K National Panthers Party at Jantar Mantar and promised that they shall be ready to strengthen the movement of Panthers Party for reorganization of J&K, for the creation of Jammu State, for the amendment in Article 370 and for emotional integration of J&K with the rest of the country.
