Total collapse of administration in J&K Need for Guv.’s intervention under S-92

J&K National Panthers Party expressed its anguish, shock and dismay on the situation that has arisen in J&K following the havoc and devastation caused due to unprecedented floods in Kashmir Valley and Jammu Pradesh.  The Panthers Party leaders urged Shri N.N Vohra, the Governor J&K to open Governor’s Relief Fund so that all donors may contribute directly in the Governor Relief Fund.  This is essential to keep out the busybodies from playing hoax with the Relief Fund.  The NDRF and SDRF should be monitored under the supervision of the State Governor.

The Panthers Party also condemns the British Parliament for raising the bogey of the so-called J&K problem.  It said that Jammu and Kashmir need support and sympathies to save the people from death and destruction being caused by the havoc of floods.

A joint Statement was issued by Prof. Bhim Singh, Shri Harsh Dev Singh MLA & Chairman, Shri Balwant Singh Mankotia MLA & President, Shri Yashpal Kundal MLA & General Secretary in a press conference. 

The Working Committee of JKNPP in a resolution urged Shri N.N Vohra, the Governor of J&K to invoke Section 92 of J&K Constitution by proclamation to assume to himself all the functions of the Government of the State as well as all the powers vested in or exercisable the Council of Ministers.

The Working Committee of the JKNPP felt that the present government headed by Shri Omar Abdullah has ceased to function and discharge its duties and therefore there is a need that Section 92 should be invoked immediately.

The first essential responsibility of the State Government of is rescue nearly half a million (500000.00) human beings stranded/trapped in Kashmir Valley.  Nearly five thousands of them are foreign tourists, fifty thousand tourists from the country and the same number from Jammu Pradesh.

The Panthers Party regretted that the government has failed even to set up a single information centre in a safe zone anywhere in the state even the public places like Raj Bhawan, Chief Minister office, Divisional Commissioner offices, as well as police headquarters have ceased to functions.  It is only the brave efforts of the Indian Army which have saved the lives of lacs of people and still fighting with total dedication to carry on rescue operation on land, on water and in air.

The Panthers Party has set up information centres in New Delhi, Jammu and Srinagar but there is no place to convey this information collected regarding the missing persons in Kashmir Valley.

The Panthers Party has appealed the President of India to grant his concurrence for Governor Rule in J&K.  Panthers Party demanded that 2000 boats are the urgent need of the hour.  While congratulating the Kashmiri peasantry and the boatmen in their noble work to save the tourists and the outsiders, the Panthers Party demanded 2000 boats for the locals to help rescue the thousands of people stranded/trapped in water in Kashmir.

He said that even Raj Bhawan, Chief Minister, Police Headquarters have no telephonic connection available at all. He demanded that the Governor should take over the administration under Section 92 of J&K Constitution to save the lives of nearly four lacs flood trapped human beings in Kashmir Valley.
