Early Times Report
Jammu, Aug 20: Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party (JKNPP) Chief Patron Prof.Bhim Singh in a letter addressing to President of India and the Prime Minister has congratulated them for withdrawing Article 35-A from Chapter-III of the Indian Constitution which had blocked all the roads to fundamental rights for the citizens of India residing in J&K.
Prof.Bhim Singh was addressing a press conference in Chelmsford Club, New Delhi today.
He said it was this Article 35-A which had deprived the Indian citizens (residents of J&K) of fundamental rights from 1954 the day Article 35-A was imposed by the President of India in his Presidential Order in 1954. It was because of this Act (35-A) that thousands of people had to remain in detention without trial for years which included this writer also who spent nearly eight years in detention in J&K without trial.
The Permanent Residents Status has been accorded to all those who had settled in J&K before 1954. The outsiders who were not the residents of J&K before 1954 were not qualified to be Permanent Residents of J&K. This Law was made by Maharaja Hari Singh with a clear intention that no outsider should be allowed to buy/purchase property, land etc. in J&K.
The British had an eye on Kashmir and they had moved their offices to Kashmir and most of them wanted to purchase property/land. The Maharaja in consultation with the people of J&K had enacted a Law, 'State Subject' banning sale of property/land to those who were not residents of J&K. This way the Maharaja saved the entire land of J&K from being encroached by the outsiders. This Law is unquestionable before any court or legislature. The Parliament of India has no locus to interfere with the Permanent Residents Act, J&K. The government of India has not cleared this situation till today. And much of the reason for chaos in J&K is for this reason. The rumours are spreading fast by the trouble makers which need to be checked in time.
Prof. Bhim Singh has conveyed to the President of India that he may call an urgent meeting of the representatives of different political parties in J&K as recognized by the Election Commission of India so that this message is cleared in the national interest that the present amendment does not interfere with the present Permanent Residents Act. Since media in J&K is almost shut and only the media which is appearing in public with voice of the state shall not clear this kind of confusion and propaganda.
The National Panthers Party has been demanding/asking for reorganization of the state where J&K (other than Ladakh) is granted with twin state status i.e. State of Kashmir & State of Jammu Province. Both the states could have one Governor & one High Court. Besides, twin states could be cleared as confederation of J&K. This was the main resolution floated by J&K National Panthers Party in its convention held in March 2008 in New Delhi, which was attended by many national leaders.
