Prof.Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of National Panthers Party has urged Pranab Mukherjee, the President of India to exercise his authority under Article 370 of the Constitution of India and direct the Governor of J&K to impose Governor rule in J&K within the meaning and scope of Section 92 of J&K Constitution which has vested powers in the Governor to do so with the approval of the President of India.Prof.Bhim Singh, who is also Executive Chairman of State Legal Aid Committee and Constitutional expert vis-à-vis J&K urged President of India to play his mandatory role in defense of the safety, security and integrity of India vis-à-vis State of J&K which has been under a serious threat since July 8. He said 43 days are over and the people of J&K, particularly in the province of Kashmir have been living under the shadow of terror. The safety and security of the defence forces stand threatened because of the complicated legalities involved in the state of J&K by the unwanted provisions in Article 370 of the Constitution of India.
Prof.Bhim Singh urged the President of India that life and liberty in Kashmir Valley stand threatened, Constitution has failed to function as the ruling clan (BJP and PDP) have utterly failed to govern as they have lost the total confidence of the people of J&K. The only way out is the Governor Rule which the President of India enjoys unlimited powers within the meaning and scope of Article 370 to direct the Governor of J&K to impose Governor Rule for the safety, security and liberty of the people of J&K in the national interest and security of the country.Prof.Bhim Singh also urged the Prime Minister of India Shri Narendra Modi to support this plea of the Panthers Party made to the President of India because it is only the President of India under Article 370 of Indian Constitution who is vested with constitutional authority to intervene in the present crisis that has arisen in J&K in the interest of safety, security and integrity of the people of J&K.
