Srinagar/Jammu/New Delhi November 25, 2020: Prof. Bhim Singh, Sr. Advocate, Supreme Court of India & Chief Patron-JKNPP urged in a letter addressed to the Chief Election Commissioner of India to take urgent criminal action against the Ministers in Govt. of India namely Union Home Minister, Mr Amit Shah and his State Minister, Mr Anurag Thakur who have been repeatedly using unparliamentary and offensive words against two recognized political parties in J&K namely NC and PDP.
Prof. Bhim Singh said that he was shocked by the offensive language which BJP ministers and leaders have been using against the said political parties in J&K calling them as ‘Gupkar Gang’.
In his letter addressed to the Election Commission of India urged CEC to take urgent criminal action against those who have been using this criminal language against the recognized political parties which represent the Indian citizens of Kashmir in Parliament even today.
Prof. Bhim Singh also urged the Bar Council of India to take up this matter for appropriate action so that honour and legal sanctity of democratic system shall not be insulted criminally by the Ministers in Union Govt.
This is, he said in his letter, is a criminal offence and amounts to a challenge to the integrity of CEC itself. Should a political party recognized by the CEC be abused as a gangster?
Shall this statement of Union Ministers and recognized political party, BJP, not amount to defamation? Is it not a challenge to the integrity of the CEC itself?
Prof. Bhim Singh urged the CEC for an immediate criminal action against all those officials or non-officials including newspapers using this word, ‘Gupkar Gang’ against two recognized political parties thus challenging the dignity of Election Commission of India which has recognized these parties. He said that the political party he represents is a third recognized political party in J&K National Panthers Party.
He wrote to the CEC that the Panthers Party has no political association with the two political parties; NC and PDP.
He said that he and his party have suffered jails and discrimination during their rule. But, this is the issue of the dignity of ECI and political parties recognized by it. So I am before the Election Commission of India in defence of the rule of law, the dignity of the recognized political parties and our fundamental rights.
NPP Supremo urged CEC to give its judgment if two recognized political parties are gang or legitimate representatives in Parliament if they represent people or a gang?
