Union Home Minister Amit Shah will address mega rallies in Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajouri and Baramulla on October 1 and October 2.
This was stated by former minister and BJP’s Kashmir Affairs in-charge, Sunil Sharma, on Saturday at a press conference in Srinagar.
“Shah will arrive in Jammu on September 30 and will address a mega rally in Rajouri district on October 1,’’ he said. “ He said Shah will also address a mega rally in Baramulla town on October 2. He said the rally will be attended by people not only from North Kashmir, but from the whole of Kashmir
He said that the home minister will talk about several issues and highlight developmental work in Jammu and Kashmir undertaken by the central government on various fronts.
To a question about elections in Jammu and Kashmir, he said the election is the prerogative of the Election Commission of India. “BJP is always ready for elections,’’ he said. He said linking the home minister’s visit with the holding of elections in Jammu and Kashmir would be wrong.
“This is his routine visit to the region,’’ he said. “Yesterday the home minister visited Bihar as well and he will be visiting J&K also, which is a routine visit to take stock of several developmental projects and security issues.”
He said Shah will lay the foundation stone for a cancer hospital in Srinagar which will be built by Jammu and Kashmir Wakf Board.
