NEW DELHI: NPP Supremo Prof.Bhim Singh has made a strong appeal to Shri Ramnath Kovind, the President of India to exercise his authority to promulgate Governor Rule in J&K and protect the innocent people from the wrath of guns which have gone into the hands of law breakers in J&K. He said that he made several appeals to the Govt. of India in this regard which have not been considered by BJP Govt. at the Centre for the reason that BJP has been ruling partner in the State for the first time and they would like to continue as long as they can manage.

NPP Supremo urged the President of India to watch/he must have been watching yesterday and today the bursting of bombs and kind of civil war on the roads of Kashmir. He said that present government has been fully exposed and stands nowhere except collecting salaries in the first week of every month. 90% people in Kashmir have gone insecured and children are on the roads. There is no law and order, may be, the police itself has surrendered to the will of the stone-pelters. The law and order is no where and almost 90% of the tourists are running away from Kashmir or have run away. There is total anarchy. Total failure of the law and order enforcing agencies. People have lost faith in the State Govt.

The Governor has been sending, it is assumed, daily reports on the situation to the Centre about the deteriorating situation in the State starting from Kashmir Valley. NPP made strong appeal to the President of India to exercise of power/authority which is vested in him under Article 370 of the Indian Constitution and Section 92 of J&K Constitution (J&K has separate Constitution). The Presidents earlier had also exercised such power as was vested in the President of India. The President of India does not need any sanction or proposal from the Govt. of India as the State of J&K is governed by J&K Constitution which is recognized by Article 370 of the Indian Constitution. The present government has literally collapsed, needs a long holiday and the Governor Rule should be imposed in the state so that law and order, at least, could be maintained and people guaranteed security of life. This will help restore normalcy in the state. This is the only way to save J&K, save the innocent people of J&K and defend the rule of law in the state.

The Prime Minister is urged to call ‘National Integration Council’ meeting of representatives of all recognised political parties including Hurriyat Conference leaders of Kashmir Valley. Many of them have been Members of the State Legislature and could not be denounced as separatists at the pleasure of the media and the section of political parties.

NEW DELHI:   The Union Ministry of Home Affairs on has asked the Government of Jammu and Kashmir to again take all necessary steps to prevent the entry of illegal migrants into the state, including Rohingyas from Myanmar. In a letter sent to State Chief Secretary Bharat Bhushan Vyas, Anuj Sharma, Joint Secretary, Ministry of Home Affairs, called on the state government to "kindly review this matter (of the entry of illegal migrants) and issue instructions to take necessary steps and share updated information in the prescribed form .. as soon as possible.." 
 
In particular, the Home Ministry expressed its serious concern over Rohingyas and other foreigners who have already entered and are illegally staying in India, including in the state of Jammu and Kashmir.  Pertinently, former J&K Legislative Assembly Speaker and right-wing party BJP leader Kavinder Gupta (now Deputy CM) claimed that the attack on an army camp at Sunjwan in Jammu took place due to presence of Rohingya refugees in the area leaving two Army personnel, including a Junior Commissioned Officer (JCO) dead.
 
According to Kashmir News Bureau (KNB) monitoring desk, the Rohingya are fleeing a campaign of indiscriminate violence by Myanmar’s military, whose tactics are being widely condemned as a form of ethnic cleansing. It is estimated that there are about 40,000 Rohingyas residing in India. The letter from the ministry said, "Such illegal migrations poses serious challenges and has security implications since some of the migrants have been found to have indulged in illegal activities and are vulnerable to radicalization." 
 
It further states, "It has been brought to the notice of the Government that some of the Rohingyas/foreigners are involved in crimes, anti-national activities, money laundering, procuring fake/fabricated Indian documents; and some of them have illegally and fraudulently obtained Indian identity documents e.g. Pan Card, Voter Card, etc."   In January this year, the Centre told the Supreme Court that India could not become the "Refugee Capital of the World". The apex court was then hearing a petition of two Rohingya refugees who were demanding Indian citizenship and other rights.

NEW DELHI: Govt of India has enhanced the compensation for loss of milch animals due to corss-border firing in Jammu & Kashmir to Rs. 50,000/- per milch animal. Border areas of Jammu and Kashmir are facing losses of livestock, crops, houses etc. due to corss-border firing from across the border.

It may be recalled that the Govt. of India had announced expenditure for relief camps and compensation for losses of houses, crops, livestock at NDRF rates to the victims of cross-border firing in the month of December, 2017.  It was, however, observed that compensation for loss of milch animals which was Rs. 30,000/- per milch animal, was quite inadequate compared to actual value of milch animals. Considering the problem of border-residents, Govt of India has increased the compensation amount to Rs. 50,000/-.

These claims will initially be paid to the victims by the State Government of J&K after evaluating the actual loss.  The amount will then be reimbursed by the Ministry of Home Affairs under Security Related Expenditure (Relief & Rehabilitation) Scheme. Orders in this regard have been issued to J&K Govt. on 1st June, 2018.
