Srinagar, July 2: Chairman Panthers Party and senior attorney at law in Supreme Court of India Prof Bhim Singh on Friday said that he was not permitted to meet chairman Hurriyat (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani, who has been detained at Chesma Sahi sub jail here, under Public Safety Act by the government.
According to Bhim Singh, he talked to Chairman Hurriyat Conference (M) Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, who is also under house arrest, over phone and assured full support to people of Kashmir.
Bhim appealed Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh and Chairperson United Progressive Alliance Sonia Gandhi to intervene. “I urge them to save Kashmir in the greater national interest and the people of Jammu and Kashmir who have been subjected to ruthless situation by the corrupt, undemocratic and inefficient government,” Bhim Singh.
He demanded imposition of Governor rule while condemning the police assault on the peaceful demonstrators in Kupwara.
Addressing a press conference, he urged the Governor to dismiss the government and impose Governor’s Rule under Section 92 in the interest of national security.
“The entire Valley has been converted into a police Chawni resulting in closure of all public and private institutions, schools, colleges, universities, hospitals and thousands of daily wagers have been forced to starve,” Bhim said.
Prof. Bhim accused chiefs of National Conference and Congress for the present mess and asked them to explain their position in Lal Chowk. “NC President didn’t condemn the killings of innocent youth during these days,” he said.
He demanded lifting of siege of Hurriyat leaders who have been kept under house arrest.
