Srinagar, Dec 16: Prof Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of National Panthers Party visited several areas in Assembly constituencies of Kathua District namely, Hiranagar, Billawar and Kathua along with party candidates; Shri Ravinder Billeoria in Billawar, Shri Jagdish Raj in Hiranagar and Shri Balbir Singh in Kathua are contesting Assembly election.
Prof Bhim Singh warned the Election Commission of India that Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi is flying over the heads of the people by using government helicopters like kites in the election.
He said that it is free for Prime Minister only who is dashing his helicopters in almost every village and town which costs state exchequer crores of rupees every day.
Prof Bhim Singh accused Prime Minister for using Central agencies to hire the people for his election rallies were brought from Punjab.
He said that each person is paid Rs.300/- to attend the rally with free meals and a promise he shall get another Rs.300/- if he votes for BJP.
Prof Bhim Singh wondered at the criminal silence of the Election Commission who is watching gross violation of Code of Conduct.
Prime Minister has visited in every district and most of the constituencies in Jammu Pradesh where election shall be held in the 5th phase on 20th December, 2014.
Prof Bhim Singh asked CEC how he shall compensate the loss of days by every opposition party in J&K because of the frequent flights by Prime Minister, Modi setting all the public routes, blocking all the public roads even the National Highway the day Prime Minister Modi visits a particular district.
He said that he could not reach the meeting venues in Kathua and Jammu Districts today which were closed for the entry of private vehicles. Same thing happened in December 8, 2014 during the election rallies of Prime Minister Modi in Srinagar.
He asked CEC to justify allowing Prime Minister to take dozen of flights every week in J&K resulting into curfew like situation where no non-BJP party can continue election campaign.
Prof Bhim Singh demanded explanation from CEC and justify whether this is free and fair election? If this kind of a campaign by Prime Minister Modi not a criminal offence besides being a corrupt practice.
Prof.Bhim Singh appealed to the voters in Jammu Pradesh to defeat BJP which has caused a serious threat to parliamentary democracy by misusing the state power, money and administration and literally hijacked the electoral process.
He warned that such a trend shall prove counter productive and a serious threat to democracy.
