Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah will address a rally in Jammu on Saturday, just a few days after his party withdrew support from the PDP-led government in Jammu and Kashmir.

In a statement, party’s national media head Anil Baluni said that Shah will be on a day-long trip to the city mark the “historic martyrdom anniversary” of its founder president Syama Prasad Mookerjee.

Amit Shah will also hold meetings with digital media and social media volunteers, and participate in other organisational events, he said.

His public address will be significant as he is expected to touch on evolving political situation in Jammu and Kashmir following the BJP’s withdrawal of support from the Mehbooba Mufti government in which his party was a partner.

Jammu and Kashmir is now under governor’s rule.
