The Bharatiya Janata Party has for the moment given up efforts for making a new government in Jammu and Kashmir and instead started preparing for panchayat and parliamentary polls in the state, according to the state unit of the saffron party. The party national secretary Ram Madhav who was scheduled to begin his two-day visit to the state from Saturday has postponed it, BJP general secretary (organization), Ashok Kaul told.
“He (Madhav) is busy in north east and new dates will be fixed soon,” Kaul said.
Madhav’s itinerary included a visit to Basoli in Kathua, the constituency represented by Choudhary Lal Singh. Singh purportedly played a BJP rebel for months after his sacking for supporting the persons accused of rape and murder of a minor Bakerwal girl of Rasana village.
Kaul said so far there is nothing in pipeline about government formation in J&K.
