NEW DELHI,  Sept 15: Concerned over the fast deteriorating situation in J&K and failure of  State Govt to restore law and order, a large number of  JKNPP activists today led its chairman  Harsh Dev Singh  held a protest demonstration at Jantar Mantar here today.
They were demanding imposition of Governor’s rule in the J&K State. The Panthers Party activists look out a procession and marched towards Parliament House but were stopped by the Police and restrained from proceeding further. The angry protestors raised slogans against State and Central Govt and were addressed by several senior leaders of the party.
Expressing serious concern over the breakdown of Administrative and constitutional machinery in the State for more than two months which witnessed assault on Amar Nath Ji pilgrims, civil unrest , clashes, public attacks on police stations and security forces in Kashmir,  Harsh Dev Singh said that the prevailing situation in the State called for imposition of Governor’s rule under Sec 92 of the constitution of the State.
He alleged that Government has failed to respond appropriately to the situation created in the wake of  killing of Hizb commander and the resultant turbulence witnessed in the Valley. He regretted that with over 80 people killed, nearly 11000 injured including the security personnel it was virtually a case of anarchy and lawlessness prevailing in Kashmir with no signs of Government on the ground. He said that Ministers who ought to have come out of their hiding and made them-selves available to the civil society had deliriously shun their responsibility by fleeing to safer places thus allowing the situation to further deteriorate.
While  holding the appeasement policy pursued by the incumbent Govt  responsible for the prevalent crisis,  Mr Singh said that the Govt had taken several  unsavoury decisions at the behest of separatists and others anti national forces which had emboldened such elements.
Yash Paul Kundal, president Young Panthers  also spoke on the occasion. Prominent among others who led the protest included Rajender Singh Manju, Shyam Gorkha,  Manju Singh,  Sudesh Dogra,  Arun Khajuria, Mohinder Singh and Vishav Singh.
