‘Get Ready for Assembly Elections’: BJP Tells J&K Unit
Party’s national president JP Nadda directs party cadres to reach out to people, strengthen roots.
JAMMU — Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) national president JP Nadda has asked the party men to get ready for assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir stating that present was theirs and efforts should be made to ‘grab future too’.
Nadda arrived in Jammu on a two-day visit on Monday. He chaired a high level meeting of party leaders at Katra, Jammu in which senior BJP leaders including national General Secretaries Tarun Chug, Vinod Tawdey, MoS PMO Dr Jitendera Singh and J&K BJP chief Ravinder Raina besides all party leaders from J&K were present.
Sources privy to the meeting said Nadda while addressing the party workers showered praises on party’s Kashmir-based leaders for remaining steadfast during tough times and braving violence. “In 2008, no one could have thought that BJP rallies would be held in Kashmir as violence was at its peak. But I saw rallies and other programs of BJP taking place as the party’s Kashmir based workers and leaders remained committed towards the party,” Nadda told the meeting, as per sources. He hailed the party’s Kashmir based leaders for their efforts towards strengthening party roots in the Valley and urged them to keep moving in the right direction.
“You should get ready for the assembly elections. Present is ours but we all must make efforts to retain the forte and grab the future too,” Nadda was quoted as having told the meeting, as per sources.
Nadda listened to the party men from Kashmir and Jammu patiently. Sources said that Nadda asked party leaders and workers to promote Prime Minister Narendera Modi’s vision in the months ahead. “Keep the momentum going, I assure you that the future will be ours,” he told the meeting. (KNO)
