New Delhi/Jammu/Srinagar 24th March, 2020. Panthers Party Supremo, Prof. Bhim Singh has questioned the unexplained silence of the entire national leadership of the BJP on the martyrdom of S. Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev who were hanged inside Lahore Central Jail, then in undivided India on 23rd March, 1931. It was exactly 50 years after their selfless sacrifice of lives that the Panthers Party was established on 23rd March, 1982.
Prof. Bhim Singh said that though the PM and HM have tweeted their messages may be due to COVID-19 but the entire national leadership of BJP kept a surprising silence. It is more shocking that the memorial of Shaheed-e-azam at Bahadur Shah Zafar Marg, New Delhi is less than 2 kms distance from the multi crore office of the BJP at Deen Dayal Upadhaya Marg. Not even an Executive Member of the BJP did land at the memorial with a flower. Even a selfie would have helped them as formality for publicity sake.
All the nationalists observing martyrs day have silent questions in their mind and the BJP need to answer the entire Nation about this indifferent attitude towards great martyrs. The BJP leadership has to answer to the entire Nation about its indifferent behaviour.
He said that the BJP leadership has to explain to the entire Nation and its own party the reasoning and rationale behind the BJP’s Act of neglecting Shaheed Bhagat Singh and other martyrs who were nationalist, progressive and believed in the struggle for the upliftment of have nots. If the BJP’s designs are that of opposing the martyrs then it should come out in public with its nefarious and hidden agenda or otherwise openly condemn all those who sought pardon from the Britishers and dodged the freedom movement.
NPP Supremo also expressed shock that this martyr day was not observed at National level or even at the Headquarters of the ruling Bhartiya Janta Party. The Panthers Party was founded on 23rd March, 1982 in honour of the martyrs so that shall remain on the foundation day on record of a recognized political party.
The Party observed martyrs day at every doorstep of Panthers volunteers in the undivided state of J&K yesterday and organized similar martyrs’ day in Bihar, Lucknow, Delhi, Jaipur, Chandigarh and other places saluting the great martyrs and urging the Parliament to decorate all martyrs as Bharat Ratan who sacrificed their lives during the India’s freedom struggle.
