The BJP is confident to form its own government in Jammu and Kashmir, whenever elections are held. BJP vice president and party’s poll in-charge for the state Avinash Rai Khanna said that the previous PDP-BJP government was an incomplete government.
With regard to Artciles 370 and 35-A, he said that the Modi government will take an “appropriate decision” at the “appropriate time”. It will be in the interest of Jammu and Kashmir as well as the country, he said.
Replying to a question on Articles 370 and 35-A, which give special status to Jammu and Kashmir, he said only time will tell what will happen on the two articles.
“The Prime Minister Narendra Modi led government will take appropriate action at an appropriate time, which will be in interest of Jammu and Kashmir and the country,” he said.
Khanna, who was the party’s in-charge for Jammu and Kashmir’s organisational affairs, was appointed election in-charge on Wednesday. He also praised Governor Satya Pal Malik and said an atmosphere of trust had been developed in the state.
The Election Commission may announce the poll schedule after the Amarnath Yatra is over. Official sources have indicated the elections may be held in October-November.
