Srinagar,October 15 (Scoop News)- Prof. Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of National Panthers Party & Member of National Integration Council today demanded release of all detenus detained under draconian Public Safety Act in J&K.
He regretted that last traces of democracy were destroyed by NC-Congress Govt. in the past five years and hundreds of innocent boys have been put in jails without trial which is negation of rule of law and democracy.
Addressing a press conference in Srinagar, Kashmir Prof. Bhim Singh urged the State Governor, N.N. Vohra to exercise his constitutional authority and set at liberty all detenus so that they can join their families on Eid. Prof. Bhim Singh said that it is shocking that the Govt. of J&K has invoked PSA against students, minors and youth under the pretext of stone-throwing which is not acceptable in the eyes of law.
He also demanded that the ‘Darbar Move’ exercise should be stopped. Only the files pertaining to Jammu Pradesh shifted from Srinagar whereas the files pertaining to Kashmir province should be retained in the Srinagar Secretariat. He said that Rs.600 crores spent every year in the exercise of ‘Darbar Move’ should be given to the employment board so that all the newly recruited employees shall get their full salaries. To a question, the NPP Supremo said that he is not in favour of increase of salaries of the legislators unless all the employees and newly recruits are brought at par.
Prof. Bhim also met Mrs. Khalida Shah, President, Awami National Conference this morning over a breakfast meeting in Srinagar. Prof. Bhim Singh told the media that Dr. Kamal Mustafa, the youngest son of Sheikh Mohd. Abdullah had agreed with him that the Civil Secretariats should function at both the places around the year as it has been done in the working of the High Court of J&K. Prof. Bhim Singh said that Dr. Kamal Mustafa also agreed that he shall support the issue of delimitation of the Assembly Constituencies without any delay so far as rotation of the reserved seats and geographical readjustment of the constituencies is concerned.
Earlier Prof. Bhim extended Eid Greetings to the people of J&K, Muslim brethren in the rest of the country and everywhere in the world expressed hope that the Eid shall bring back last traces of democracy and rule of law in J&K and bring peace particularly in the Middle-East which has been facing wrath of Anglo-American Bloc.
