Jammu, Feb 20:The office of Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party’s (JKNPP) has been sealed by the administration, days after former minister Harsh Dev Singh quit AAP and returned to the party, news reports said.
Quoting officials of estates department, they said that the office at Jammu's Gandhi Nagar area was actually allotted to party founder late Bhim Singh after he had become an MLC in 2002 which he continued to occupy since then.
After the death of Bhim Singh on May 31, 2022, the party split into two factions—one headed by Vilakshan Singh and another by P K Ganjoo.
The Jammu office was then occupied by Vilakshan Singh, who had the support of the former’s widow, Jaymala Singh.
The JKNPP functionaries said that they were not issued any notice by the department. They said that they will approach court as the party was registered with the Election Commission.
