Srinagar: The Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) has called a meeting of its Jammu and Kashmir unit’s core group on July 30 to discuss the political atmosphere in the state.
Sources said Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah, union minister Jitendra Singh, BJP general secretary Ram Madhav and state unit president Ravinder Raina and other senior leaders from the state will attend the meeting, to be chaired by its national working president JP Nadda.
Earlier, Madhav, who is the party’s pointsman for Jammu and Kashmir, had urged the election commission to held polls in the state this year.
The state BJP has asserted that it is ready for elections anytime with its general secretary Narinder Singh saying that there is still enough time left for the Election Commission to hold polls in this year.
In 2014, the state polls were held in November-December, he said.
The election commission is likely to announce the dates of assembly polls once it receives a go-ahead on the law and order situation from both, the Centre and the state government.
