BJP general secretary Ram Madhav on Thursday arrived in the summer capital to assess the political situation in view of mainstream parties pressing for restoration of Article 370 and statehood in J&K.

This visit of Mr Madhav, who is the point man for the saffron party in J&K, holds significance as it comes at a time when activities by other political parties, including National Conference (NC) and Congress, have started for the first time after August 5, 2019.
