JAMMU: National Panthers Party president Prof Bhim Singh has alleged that J&K Chief Minister-Dr Farooq Abdullah was playing more dangerous games than the Hurriyat Conference and he should be sacked immediately for the interest of the state and the country. Talking to media-persons here today, the NPP supremo alleged strongly criticised the Chief Minister for his repeated public statements about convention of Line of Control (LOC) into the International Border (IB). He pointed out that by raising such voice we are giving signal to the world bodies that we have surrendered out legitimate claim on the Pak occupied areas. It will certainly put a sign of interrogation on the three wars wages over the territory. Prof Singh alleged that by raising such "foolish" claim, the Chief Minister was giving wrong signals which are more dangerous than the demands put forth by the Hurriyat Conference leaders. The State Governor by virtue of the powers vested with him under section 92, should immediately dismiss the NC government and should come out with the plan of all party government in the state. Commenting on the several incidence of militants" attacks, the NPP leader said that cease-fire announced by the Prime Minister has no meaning. It is one sided affair and the militants continued their activities. He alleged that recent Panchayat elections was a fraud and several names of the voters were found missing in Panchayat electoral list. Even a large number of dead persons found place in the list. It appears that the old list lying with the authorities were produced and it was not revised even for more than last 10-15 years. Mr Singh who recently visited Bhogal- Paristan area of Ramban and Banihal alleged that people are totally neglected. He claimed that large number of NC and BJP workers joined his party.
