President urged to intervene into Congress MP’s representation on Lakshadweep crisis

Jammu, May 25, 2021: “A highly sensitive and serious issue has been raised by a sitting Member of Parliament from Kerala Mr. Hibi Eden on Lakshadweep, which deserves an urgent attention of the President of India because this issue has created a confusion among the parliamentarians and the law-makers about the constitutional relationship of Lakshadweep with Kerala state and about the appointment of Mr. Praful Khoda Patel as Administrator of Lakshadweep. This issue is very ticklish and serious concerning the integration of Lakshadweep with the Union of India. The Congress MP has taken up this issue and in his representation to the President of India deserves urgent and immediate intention of Parliament of India. What is the citizenship right of the residents of Lakshadweep? Are the residents not citizens of India? Can the fundamental rights guaranteed in Chapter-III of the Indian Constitution be changed or amended or scrapped by the so-called Administrator of an Island, Lakshadweep? Why is the Lakshadweep not made an integral part of the State of Kerala? These questions need to be answered by the Parliament of India. It is only Mr. Ramnath Kovind, the President of India who may be obliged to consider these issues raised in the letter by sitting Member of Parliament, Mr. Hibi Eden”.
Prof.Bhim Singh, President, J&K National Panthers Party, Sr. Advocate, Supreme Court of India & Master of Laws with Distinction from London University has urged the President of India to kindly consider the representation of a Congress MP from Kerala on this issue. He has urged the President to take all Islands as unit, integral part of the adjoining province in the Union of India. Why Lakshadweep should be allowed to be used as a toy in the hands of a power hungry political party which was headed by the former Prime Minister of India, Mr. Atal Bihari Vajpayee. Prof.Bhim Singh reminded the Members of Parliament including that of BJP to follow the principles of National Integration which were strictly followed by BJP Prime Minister, Mr. Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
Prof.Bhim Singh has urged the secular, nationalist and socialist committed Members of Parliament to take this issue urgently so that there should be no separate units like Union Territories or separate Islands because it is one Constitution, one Nation and Fundamental Rights are applicable to all citizens of India whether Ladakh, J&K or Lakshadweep. No minor administrator of any unit is empowered to destroy/change/rewrite any of the fundamental rights of Indian citizens. A panchayat member in Lakshadweep, Kashmir, Nagaland or anywhere else has the same fundamental rights anywhere in the country. A petty administrator of Lakshadweep cannot change the Election Rules of any member of panchayat, MLA or Member of Parliament.
It is horrific, undemocratic and against equality guaranteed by the Constitution. It is also senseless to say that people with more than two children cannot contest panchayat elections. The Prime Minister should leave everything else in the hands of his able cabinet and have a ‘heart to heart’ talk with his Lakshadweep Administrator to stop erasing the Constitution of India and bringing bad name to him to the Central Govt. and the party which was once led by great Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
