Maintaining that situation in Jammu and Kashmir is critical, JKNPP today demanded from the President of India, Pranab Mukhrjee to impose Governor Rule in the state.
While addressing a press conference at Party Headquarter, Gandhi Nagar, Jammu, Neeraj Gupta, Zonal President appealed to Pranab Mukhrjee, the President of India to use his good office to impose Governor rule in Jammu and Kashmir by advising of J&K Governor N.N Vohra to take over governance of J&K by invoking section 92 of the J&K constitution which empowers the Governor to impose Governor rule.
Gupta said that the situation in Jammu and Kashmir has crossed all the limits defined in the constitution and Governor's rule is the only way out because President's rule cannot be imposed in J&K because of Article 370.
The President of India shall use the power within the meaning and scope of Article 370 which has itself become outdated, undesirable and unacceptable to match democracy and the rule of law in the state of J&K which acceded to the Union of India on 26th October 1947 under the seal and signature of the then ruler of J&K Maharaja Hari Singh, he said.
He said that state acceded to Union like other 577 states in the Union of India and were merged in the Union.
Gupta also said that only Panthers Party can provide justice, equity, and end all forms of discrimination in the state. J&K should
be reorganized by establishing 'twin states'; Kashmir State and Jammu State, he said.
The Ladakhies if choose to be adopted as Union Territory, their choice should be respected, he added.
He said that the two states shall continue as 'twin states' with separate provincial governments but with one High Court and one Governor.
This shall be done after a consensus of the people of the three regions. Rakesh Gupta, General Secretary, Mastan Singh, senior leader, JKNPP, Ravinder Jamwal and Naveen Bali were also present on the occasion.
