Co-incharge of BJP's state unit RP Singh on Saturday said the party would form the next government in the state post the assembly elections due later this year. "We are ready for the elections. We are confident that we will form the next government here. People want a Modi Sarkar here too," he told presspersons, during the sidelines of a function held to induct new members into the party.
Singh stated that people of Jammu and Kashmir wanted a corruption-free government that can also ensure development. He said, "People in Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh are looking up to the BJP. They are fed up of state parties like National Conference, People's Democratic Party and Congress."
When asked about the strike organised by separatists on Friday during Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit, Singh said, "Such things do not matter. What matters is what the people want. They want development and prosperity."
Commenting on the Kashmir's Grand Mufti (head priest) Mufti Bashir-ud-din's statement that the people of Kashmir would not accept a separate homeland for displaced Pandits, Singh said, "Pandits are a part of Kashmir and have the right to return."
