National Panthers Party Chief Professor, Bhim Singh passed away at his residence in Jammu after a prolonged illness. He was 80. Singh was the founder and Chief Patron of the Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party (JKNPP), a political organisation which seeks “ultimate revolution”, based in the Indian union territory of Jammu and Kashmir.
Mr Singh, a lawyer by profession, has been unwell for some time and was admitted to the Government Medical College, Jammu. Prof. Singh was a leader committed to secular values who fought relentlessly for the rights of downtrodden and marginalised sections of society in and outside the State legislature. At a time when polarization and divisiveness have dominated the political arena, he stood for communal harmony and fought tooth and nail against the forces, who are hell bent on dividing the people and regions into the communal lines.
