Jammu, June 20: Prof.Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of National Panthers Party urged the President of India to invoke temporary provision of Article 370 so that J&K state is brought under Governor Rule without any delay so that the innocent people in the state including the members of the security forces are protected within the meaning and law as enshrined in Article 21 of the Constitution of India.
Prof.Bhim Singh urged Shri Pranab Mukherjee, the President of India to exercise his power he is vested with under the Constitution of India to amend any provision in Article 370. Prof.Bhim Singh, a Barrister at Law and Sr. Advocate in the Supreme Court of India who is also an elected Sr. Executive Member of the Supreme Court Bar Association and Chairman of Foreign Relations Committee has urged the President of India that proviso in Section 3 of Article 370 has become redundant when J&K enacted its own Constitution and made it applicable on 26th January, 1956 in J&K. He said that proviso in Section 3 of Article 370 has become dead and gone as the Constituent Assembly in J&K was closed the day Constitution of J&K was promulgated in J&K on 26thJanuary, 1956.
Prof.Bhim Singh said that President of India enjoys absolute power to amend any of the provision in the said Article which is still a temporary provision on the face of the Constitution of India. He urged the President of India to exercise his absolute power which he enjoys from the domain of Article 370 itself after the demise of the Constituent Assembly of J&K the day Constitution was imposed in the State.
Prof.Bhim Singh made a strong appeal to the Prime Minister of India also to act in accordance with the Constitution and advice the President of India to intervene in the matter as the only way out today to save J&K from total death and destruction is Governor Rule. He called on the Prime Minister that a dialogue with all sections and factions of the people from different political alignments may be initiated so that the people of J&K may elect the Govt. for their choice. Reorganization of the State of J&K is only way out so that electorates in the Valley, Jammu Pradesh and Ladakh region shall feel secure and safe. A confederation of three states, Ladakh, Kashmir Valley and Jammu Pradesh is the only way out.
