By SOP newswire2


JKNPP launched its one million membership campaign in Kashmir Valley from its Headquarters at Rajbagh Srinagar (Kashmir). Prof. Bhim Singh enrolled Syed Rafiq Shah, MLC and General Secretary of JKNPP as its first member. Prof. Bhim Singh also enrolled Kashmir Province President, Mr. Farooq Ahmed Dar, Vice President Mr. Masood Indrabi, General Secretary, Mr. Manjoor Naik, Press Secretary, Mr. Mehboob Illahi, District President Gandherbal, Mr. Abdul Rashid Ganie, Budgam District President, Mr. Abdul Rashid Parra, Provincial Secretary, Mr. Maqbool Malik, Coordination General Secretary, Mr. H.S. Jamwal, Vice President, S. Daljit Singh and 21 members of Kashmir Province Executive Committee.

Earlier, Prof. Bhim Singh was received by hundreds of Panthers activists led by Syed Rafiq Shah, MLC who were raising slogans expressing solidarity with Prime Minister of India for initiating dialogue with Pakistan and expressing support to Prof. Bhim Singh for his courageous steps to initiate "Intra J&K Heart to Heart` Talks with the leaders of POK and Gilgit to seek peaceful resolution of present situation.

Hundreds of Panthers Party activists rejected the autonomy report of Justice Sageer Ahmed and National Conference demand following a resolution moved by Syed Rafiq Shah, MLC. The resolution said that reunion and reunification is the only solution to Jammu and Kashmir situation. The resolution moved by Syed Rafiq Shah also expressed solidarity with the people of Gilgit and Baltistan who are fighting for their liberation from authoritarian military rule of Pakistan. The resolution also condemned the police attack on the Panthers Party workers in Sopore (District Baramullah) when they were proceeding in a peaceful rally from Kupwara to Srinagar to join the membership campaign. Several Panthers Party activists were injured when police ambushed the road to stop Panthers Party workers reaching Srinagar. About one dozen vehicles were also damaged by the police. Mr. Rafiq shah described this attack as assault on democracy and symbol of National Conference autonomy.
