Jammu Tawi, J&K (India).24th May 2020: Prof. Bhim Singh, Founder of J&K National Panthers Party & Senior Advocate of Supreme Court of India has challenged the latest law inducted forcibly in J&K by the Union of India to bypass permanent residents rules in J&K and depriving the permanent residents of Jammu & Kashmir of their jobs and work in the government offices even in Class-IV, Class-III & Class-II jobs in the government in J&K.
Prof. Bhim Singh a Barrister at Law post-graduated in law also from London University in 1972. Presently he is also Executive Chairman of State Legal Aid Committee besides Senior Advocate in the Supreme Court of India. Besides, Prof. Bhim Singh is also a permanent resident of Jammu & Kashmir by birth in Jammu & Kashmir, the state which was founded by the first Dogra ruler, Maharaja Gulab Singh in 1846, he comes from the family of first Dogra General Zorawar Singh, declared that the Panthers Party which was founded in 1982 shall save the integrity of Jammu & Kashmir and Fundamental Rights of its permanent residents which have been recognized by the Constituent Assembly of India when Constitution of India was framed and finalized in November 1949.
Prof. Bhim Singh regretted that BJP government in the Centre has been acting in violation in letter and spirit by violating/infringing the spirit and the command of the Constitution of India which was declared on 26th January, 1950.
That Article 370 (1) which has been retained by the present rulers is very clear that the Parliament of India has not implemented the Accession of the State of Jammu & Kashmir by accepting the Instrument of Accession on 5th March 2020 neither Parliament has amended the Constitution to accept the Instrument of Accession signed by Maharaja Hari Singh on 26th October 1947. The Parliament has not taken over Defence, Foreign Affairs & Communications with Allied Matters which were retained with the Executive power of J&K by the Maharaja. Unless Parliament of India acquires entire State of Jammu & Kashmir by its Parliamentary decision that three subjects retained by the Maharaja with him, shall also be given to the authority of the Parliament of India the Instrument of Accession remains intact. The present BJP government has not acted in accordance with the International Law nor in accordance with the Constitution of India while declaring Jammu & Kashmir as two Union Territories by splitting Jammu & Kashmir.
This matter should be understood in the rulers of India who are dictating pro-BJP laws in J&K in violation of the Constitution of India as well as International Law.
Prof. Bhim Singh urged the President of India to convene an urgent meeting of all representatives of Jammu & Kashmir recognized political parties and those which are functioning in Jammu & Kashmir. This matter deserves the earliest attention of the President lest Intentional Court of Justice intervention comes into play.
