Appeasing all voters, BJP to do separate politics in separate regions ahead of polls

Early Times Report
srinagar, Feb 9: In a bid to appease voters of each region of the state ahead of assembly and parliamentary elections, Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) has adopted a strategy by seeking votes from the people of three regions of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh on different issues based on their relevance in the area.
As elections are approaching, all the mainstream politicians have geared up and are campaigning in different assembly as well as parliamentary constituencies, leaving no stone un-turned to woo the voters.
However, the BJP has adopted a different strategy where it has been making different issues its poll plank in three different regions of the state.
For the Jammu region, the party is banking on the promise of abrogation of Article 370 and complete integration of Jammu and Kashmir with India. The BJP leaders have been seeking votes from the people on the assurance that the party will abrogate Article 370 and there will be complete integration of state with India if BJP comes to power in the state.
The BJP leaders said that revocation of Article 370 would help Jammu in boosting its economy and raising issue about discrimination of the region. The party had also raised this issue before the parliamentary elections after which it decimated the Congress party in Ladakh and Jammu region. This time, the party would also use it as a poll plank.
The BJP is also raising the issues of discrimination with the Jammu region. In Jammu BJP is also seeking votes on the rehabilitation of displaced Kashmiri Pandits. Whey the party was in power with the PDP, no such efforts were made.
For the Kashmir valley, the BJP leaders are luring voters on different issues. The leaders are seeking voters on the promise that Central government would provide all possible help to the people if they cast votes in favour of its candidates.
The BJP is also eyeing those assembly constituencies where there is a sizeable vote share of Kashmiri Pandits. Sources said the BJP leaders are trying to motivate the youth and those who are facing charges of stone pelting to vote for the party and in return will help them in withdrawing their cases.
To appease the voters of Ladakh region, the party has adopted a different strategy where it is raising the issue of regional discrimination with the region and is being deprived of basic facilities.
A senior BJP leader said that his party wants equal development of all three regions of the state. He said if the BJP come to power, it will focus on development and prioritize youth empowerment of all three regions of the state. "Based on these issues we are seeking the votes," he added.
