Claiming to form the next Government in Jammu and Kashmir, Bhartiya Janta Party on Friday said that they will get a thumping majority in the Assembly elections.
This was stated by BJP state unit president Ravinder Raina while reacting to former J&K chief minister and NC Vice President Omar Abdullah who on Friday told a rally in Tral that boycotting polls comes at a cost.
“If there’s a boycott, then like what happened in parliamentary polls will happen in assembly polls too, there’ll be a BJP MLA from Tral from where Burhan Wani and Zakir Musa belonged. They (BJP) have their eyes on some constituencies here,” Omar had told the rally.
“BJP will surely form the next Government in the State of Jammu & Kashmir in coming Assembly elections as is evident from the fact that the party has secured more votes than all others parties combined together in the Parliament elections in the State,” Raina told Greater Kashmir.
He said that Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh have voted for BJP, which holds the credit of only political party in J&K that has its footing in every region of the State. “BJP has performed exceptionally well, sweeping all the three seats of Jammu & Ladakh while securing good percentage of votes in Kashmir,” said the State president claiming that with this bumper support to the party, BJP is going to win more than 50 seats in next Assembly elections and form next Government in the State.
He said that Omar Abdullah vindicated BJP’s stand. “We are hopeful to get good number of seats from Kashmir,” he said. “Omar sahib is worried as BJP is the only party that has given justice and development to people of Kashmir.”
Raina dismissed allegations that the BJP did not favour assembly polls in the state."There is no truth in the rumours being spread that the BJP is not in favour of early assembly polls in the state," he said. “We are ready for polls anytime.”
BJP General Secretary (Organization), Ashok Kaul, said that only BJP can give stable government to the state. He said that membership drive is going on with full fervour. “More and more people are joining us,” Kaul said and added that other party activities in valley are going on.
