The Panthers Party headed by Harsh Dev Singh has now been re-christened as J&K National Panthers Party (India) and has been allotted the symbol of ‘Truck’ by the ECI.

This was stated by the party president Harsh Dev Singh at a press conference held on Sunday in Udhampur where he vowed to “oppose, expose and finally depose the BJP regime for its politics of duplicity and deceit.”

Harsh alleged, “BJP has lost the confidence of the people in view of its multiple betrayals. It has no right to continue in office. Having dismantled the oldest historical Dogra state of J&K and downgraded it to UT level, the BJP govt extended several draconian laws to it without the nod of legislature. Opening of multiple toll plazas and liquor shops; introduction of smart meters; enactment of property tax; sky-rocketing prices of essentials; burgeoning unemployment and politics of hate seemed to be the only notable achievements of BJP rule.”

He urged the people to support and strengthen JKNPP (India) and make J&K “BJP Mukt.”

Following the demise of Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party (JKNPP) supremo Prof Bhim Singh, the party fragmented into two factions – one led by Vilakshan Singh and other helmed by Harsh Dev Singh. They both are nephews of late Prof Bhim Singh.

In March this year, in wake of their dispute, the ECI restrained both factions from using the party's original name and symbol (bicycle).
