Panthers Party demands reorganisation of J-K
Srinagar: The JK National Panthers Party on Friday pressed for reorganisation of Jammu and Kashmir and opposed the demand for greater autonomy or self-rule.
"The only way out is to go for reorganisation of the entire State of J&K. The Prime Minister may invite the advocates of autonomy, self-rule and the reorganisation so that a consensus may be evolved to restore regional harmony and understanding within the state," Panthers Party chief Bhim Singh said in a letter to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, a
copy of which was released to the media here.
"Those who are talking of Greater Autonomy, they are helping the enemies of J&K because any further autonomy shall only be separation from the Union which 99 percent people of J&K would not accept. Same is the fate of self-rule demand", he said.
The Panthers Party also condemned the statements by a US pastor on burning of holy Quran, terming it as a "mad attempt" to flare up communal divide and hatred among the people of different faiths and religions and appealed for calm and unity.
