BJP joins chorus
6/5/2023 11:01:40 PM

The Election Commission of India excluding Jammu and Kashmir from the poll bound states is an indication that assembly elections in the Union Territory may be deferred.
Political parties in J&K have been demanding that assembly polls should be announced forthwith so that a democratic government can be put in place.
Now, the J&K unit of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party too has joined the chorus. Ravinder Raina, president of the Jammu and Kashmir BJP, while speaking during a public outreach program at Kulgam in South Kashmir, stated that there was no valid reason to further delay the democratic process in J&K.
He exuded hope that the ECI would soon announce the election schedule for J&K. Raina stated the time is ripe to hold the much-awaited assembly elections in J&K, citing the people’s reliance on the BJP due to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s people-friendly and pro-poor governance initiatives.
Raina’s unwavering demand for prompt elections is a strong message that the people of J&K are eager to exercise their democratic rights and actively participate in shaping the future of the Union Territory.
It appears the J&K unit of the BJP is confident about the party doing well in the assembly elections. The BJP leaders are aware that efforts undertaken by the PM Modi-led government over the past nine years, such as affordable housing for the underprivileged, free health cards, farmer-friendly measures, infrastructure development in sports and education, and significant improvements in the healthcare sector could prove decisive whenever the assembly elections are held in J&K.
The call for assembly polls in Jammu and Kashmir not only represents the desire for democratic progress but also symbolizes the region’s journey towards stability, development, and inclusive governance. It is imperative for all stakeholders to recognize the importance of timely elections in ensuring the representation and empowerment of the people of J&K.
As the voices are becoming shriller for polls in J&K, the ball is in the court of the Election Commission of India. The final call has to be taken by the ECI.
