BJP will fight upcoming assembly polls in J&K on its own strength: Raina



Ravinder Raina

Jammu and Kashmir BJP president Ravinder Raina on Wednesday said his party would fight the upcoming assembly elections on its own strength to form the next government in the Union Territory.
He said the BJP is fully prepared for the polls, which would be announced after the completion of the delimitation exercise, and had set a target of 50-plus assembly seats.

“The BJP will fight the upcoming assembly elections on its own strength and there will be no alliance with anyone,” Raina told reporters after addressing a workers convention in Doda district.

Raina, who is presently on a tour of various districts as part of the party”s mass contact programme and mobilising its workers ahead of the polls, said the party had to stitch an alliance with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) after the last assembly elections after it fell short of its mission of 44-plus seats.

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government had worked tirelessly to mitigate the problems of the people over the past seven years. The welfare schemes launched by the BJP government have benefited every section of the society under the slogan of ”Sabka Saath, SabkaV ikas and Sabka Vishwas” and today we are witnessing that every child is moving with the BJP flag in hand everywhere,” he said.

He said the BJP”s mass outreach campaign is underway, besides the district and ward level party workers convention.

“We are fully prepared for the assembly polls, which will be announced after the completion of the ongoing delimitation exercise. We have taken a pledge to cross 50-plus seats to form the next government with a thumping majority. The next chief minister will be from our party,” he said.

Raina said BJP workers are full of enthusiasm waiting for the announcement of the assembly elections in the Union Territory.

In March 2020, the BJP-led government had constituted a delimitation commission to redraw Lok Sabha and assembly constituencies in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir. The commission is yet to submit its report.

Asked about the anger among the youth against the BJP, the BJP president avoided a direct answer but said “we all know that during the last two years, the Covid-triggered lockdown caused recession around the world.

“Despite financial crunch, largescale recruitment was ensured in J-K Bank, police and civil services departments. The recruitment will continue to provide employment to the youth,” he said.

Earlier, on his arrival in the district, Raina was accorded a warm welcome by party workers.

Later, addressing the party workers meeting after a rally in the town, the BJP leader said the party has become the first choice of masses owing to the dedicated work by its workers at the ground level.

“BJP workers are always present to help the needy through thick and thin and as a result the people have developed immense faith in the whole organisation,” he said.

Asking the workers to keep up the momentum, he said with the dedicated selfless efforts of the party workers, the people have rejected the “opportunistic politics” of other political parties.
