JAMMU: The Bharatiya Janta Party’s (BJP’s) Jammu and Kashmir, President Ravinder Raina on Thursday said that the elections in Jammu and Kashmir will be held in six to eight months.

The grand event was held at BJP’s Headquarters here, where workers and office-bearers distributed sweets and danced on tunes of drums.

Speaking on the occasion, Jammu and Kashmir BJP president Ravinder Raina said that BJP’s victory has vindicated the policies of Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government.

“The pro-people policies of BJP have been accepted. The victory is also a befitting reply to Samajwadi Party and Congress, as both parties are struggling for their survival in UP and Punjab,” a visibly upbeat, Raina said.

Replying to query about elections in Jammu and Kashmir, Raina said, “Union Home Minister Amit Shah has already said that the elections in J&K will be held after the Delimitation Commission completes its assigned task. Once all assembly segments in J & K are properly demarcated, the elections would be held,” he said.

Raina further said that in the next 6-8 months, Jammu Kashmir would go to the polls and BJP will repeat UP like a landslide victory.

Raina said that the people of Jammu and Kashmir are standing with the Narendra Modi government and are taking care of every section of society. Earlier, accompanied by party workers and supporters, Raina danced to the tune of drums to celebrate the victory of the BJP.

“The lotus has bloomed again and the party registered a great win in a big state like UP, Goa, Manipur and Uttarakhand while the party’s vote percentage improved in Punjab. Meanwhile, celebrations were held at BJP’s Srinagar office too, where party workers burst fire-crackers and distributed sweets amid pro-Modi slogans. The BJP workers claimed that it was not J&K’s turn as BJP is all set to form government in J&K too—(KNO)
