JAMMU, July 5: Union Minister of Coal and Mines, G Krishna Reddy who is also election incharge of J&K BJP today urged his party cadre in the UT to fully gear up for the Assembly elections in the UT which will be held any time in near future.
Addressing BJP office bearers meeting here this evening which preceded tomorrow’s extended J&K Executive meeting in which party national president and Union Health Minister J P Nadda will also participate, Reddy said entire nation is emotionally linked to Jammu and Kashmir and annulling of Article 370 was the greatest achievement of Narendra Modi Government.
“During last 75 years our manifesto in elections was abrogation of Article 370 for which BJP right from days of Jana Sangh struggled but now our poll manifesto should be that we annulled controversial Article 370 and achievements made by BJP Government in the UT of J&K since then,’’ Reddy said.
He said entire nation is proud of party’s J&K cadre who struggled a lot during last 75 years for total merger of the erstwhile State with Indian Union. “We hope with same zeal and strength you will jump the electioneering in the UT and ensure party’s victory in coming Assembly poll,’’ he added.
Reddy urged the party cadre to go to every nook and corner of J&K and work hard to ensure that BJP emerges triumphant in the coming Assembly poll.
He while giving full credit to Narendra Modi Government for changing entire narrative in J&K said in nineties the then BJP president, Dr Murli Manohar Joshi had to visit Lal Chowk, Srinagar to unfurl the National Flag and nowadays thousands of people take tricolour in their hands in Kashmir valley. This shows the greatest change in UT situation and credit for this goes to Modi Government, he added.

Reddy said that Modi Government has led the nation to an unprecedented development and that is visible in the UT of Jammu & Kashmir as well. He said that the Modi Government has taken care of the aspirations of every Indian who are emotionally connected to the J&K and its residents.
He insisted that the Modi Government will further pace up the development in Jammu & Kashmir in its third term spanning five years.
The meeting was chaired by party president Ravinder Raina and among others it was attended by national general secretary, incharge J&K and Ladakh, Tarun Chugh, Union Minister, Dr Jitendra Singh, MP Jugal Kishore Sharma, MP (Rajya Sabha) Ghulam Ali Khatana, Seh-Prabhari, J&K, Ashish Sood, former Dy CM, Dr. Nirmal Singh and former Dy. CM Kavinder Gupta.
Chugh, in his address, lauded the BJP cadre for winning both the Lok Sabha seats of Jammu with convincing margin of votes. He said the defeat of scions of two dynastic parties marks the end of their family-based politics.
He, while criticising the Congress said that the party is not able to win a single seat in Jammu & Kashmir. He asked the party cadre to tell the people about the black deeds of the NC supported by Congress in pushing the erstwhile State of Jammu & Kashmir into the blood bath and the continuation of this bloody game by NC, PDP and Congress on the dead bodies of innocent people.
Union Minister Dr Jitendra Singh said that Modi Government is the first Government in India that has recorded the victory for third consecutive term.
He added that Congress on the other hand has failed miserably for the consecutive terms to reach even the mark of 100.
Ravinder Raina, in his welcome address, congratulated all the party leaders and activists for fulfilling the commitment of a comprehensive win in the Lok Sabha election made in the last office bearer meeting. He said that BJP has won both the seats it contested in J&K and this is due to the commitment of PM Modi towards the people which is reflected in the principle of “Sabka Sath, Sabka Vikas”.
He said that the Modi Government gave rights to every neglected section in J&K and ensured development in every sector with improved infrastructure being reflected in the construction of two AIIMS, Medical Colleges, road networks, ring roads, highways, colleges, Universities etc.

Ashish Sood also asked all the party leaders to be ready for the forthcoming elections in Jammu & Kashmir. He said the party leaders should not take the rest and be consistently involved in the service to the nation and society.
Sood said Modi Government is committed to hold the elections in the UT and Home Minister, Amit Shah is on record to have made an announcement in this regard on the floor of Lok Sabha. He has also declared that after Assembly elections the Statehood will also be restored to J&K.
Sood said Prime Minister, Narendra Modi is also on record of saying from ramparts of Red Fort that democracy will prevail in J&K and Supreme Court has also given directions in this regard.
