Bhim Singh urges to intervene for resolving J&K constitutional crises before Assembly election
Jammu, January 08 (Scoop News)-Prof.Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of J&K National Panthers Party & Sr. Executive Member of Supreme Court Bar Association has urged Shri Ramnath Kovind, President of India to intervene within the scope and limits of the boundaries of the Constitution of India as applicable vis-à-vis State of J&K. He said that President of India as on today is the sole constitutional head vis-à-vis Jammu and Kashmir as is the only competent authority as per Article 370 of the Constitution of India to deal with the constitutional problems vis-à-vis J&K. Prof.Bhim Singh reminded the President of India that it was presidential intervention in May 1954 when President of India had introduced amendment in Article 35 adding Article 35-A. Similarly, the President of India is the only competent authority who is competent to introduce any fresh change in the interest of democracy and rule of law in J&K.
Prof.Bhim Singh urged the President of India to issue amendment vis-à-vis the tenure of the life of J&K Legislative Assembly. He said that J&K had the life for J&K Assembly for five years. This was extended to six year when the life of Parliament of India was extended to six years and the State Assemblies were given the same benefit. The Govt. of J&K follow the rule and extended the life of J&K Assembly from five to six years. The Janata Party reversed the decision and brought back the life of the Parliament and the State Assemblies to five years in 1977 only. National Conference did not reverse the decision and continued for six years. Prof.Bhim Singh reminded the President of India that this was a hostile decision of J&K and the President of India should have taken appropriate decision to ensure that uniform rules shall apply vis-à-vis the Parliament and the State Assemblies. J&K was given a wrong option to continue its Assembly for six years. That continues till today.
Prof.Bhim Singh urged the President to exercise his power vested in him under Article 370 of the Indian Constitution and issue an appropriate Ordinance to fix the tenure/life of J&K Assembly at par with all other states. Five year.
Prof.Bhim Singh also urged the President to exercise his exclusive power vested in him to direct the Parliament of India to legislate in respect of three subjects mentioned in the Constitution namely, Defence, Foreign Affairs, Communications and Allied Matters. This is exclusive jurisdiction of the President of India. Similarly, President of India should issue notification to fix the life of State Assembly to five years so that the life of all the State Assemblies are brought at par and in accordance with the Constitution of India.
Prof.Bhim Singh urged the President of India to constitute a committee headed by the Attorney-General of India to prepare an appropriate constitutional documents. The country needs one uniform law and application of one Constitution vis-à-vis Parliament of India and all state legislatures in the interest of maintaining national integrity with one Constitution, one Flag and Fundamental Rights to all citizens of India from Kanyakumari to Kashmir.
