RAMBAN, JUN 17: With the Kashmir valley having been converted into a vortex of violence and its tentacles spreading to other parts, the situation in the state seemed to be fast reverting back to early nineties, said Harsh Dev Singh JKNPP Chairman and Former Minister. Having failed to control bloodshed and armed insurgency, the govt had plunged the state in unprecedented chaos, into an unfathomable abyss. With loss of precious innocent lives having become a regular feature in the present dispensation, the incumbent govt had lost the moral authority to continue in office and needed to be dismissed. He was addressing mammoth public rallies at Ukhral, Magarkote and Ramban city in district Ramban today.
Harsh Dev Singh said that a govt which could not honour its primary responsibility of safeguarding the lives and liberties of its people and providing them a sense of security had no right to exist. “Not only were the people of the state perpetually haunted by a feeling of insecurity but also were deprived of their genuine bonafide rights essential for their existence as citizens of the state and guaranteed to them under the constitution. The slogans of good governance and development having proved a farce, the people were being deprived of even their basic necessities including regular power and water supply. The people of the rural areas in particular were the worst suffers of the govt apathy which had left them at the mercy of God deliriously oblivious of their woes and sufferings”, said Harsh.
Alleging collapse of the socio-constitutional apparatus of the state and breakdown of its administrative and law and order machinery, Mr. Singh said that the situation was conducive for invocation of sec 92 of the constitution by dismissal of the present unholy regime. He said that two diametrically opposite parties, with their inchoate paradoxes, which had vowed to eliminate each other during elections, had formed the most unethical alliance and created the most unhealthy, immoral political culture in the state. He said that mal-governance, lack of accountability and transparency, fractured work culture and patronized corruption were the hall marks of the present govt which needed to go at the earliest. He said that peace and public order could not be restored till the opportunist alliance of PDP and BJP continued to rule.
Responding to the demand for Degree College in Ukhral, Harsh Dev Singh assured the gathering of taking the issue vigorously with the govt at various levels. He said that Panthers Party would further file a writ petition in the High Court seeking early sanction and establishment of the said degree college in view of acute problems faced by local youth in pursuing higher education and especially the girl students who were forced to abandon their studies in the absence of such institute of higher learning. We are committed to provide the degree college in view of it being the most coveted demand of the public of the area, said Harsh.
Yash Paul Kundal President Young Panthers called upon the people to unite and launch a campaign for the ouster of the anti people govt.
