BJP MPs to visit J&K to take stock of situation
New Delhi: A team of BJP MPs led by former party president Rajnath Singh would begin a four-day tour of Jammu and Kashmir from Monday to understand the problems of the people and "prepare a roadmap" for the state.
BJP spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain, who is part of the team, today said that the high-powered delegation would first visit Jammu and then would proceed to Kashmir.
"The delegation will visit J&K and speak to people from all walks of life to understand the problems they faced," Hussain told reporters here.
He said the same team would make another visit to the troubled state and then give its report to the party high command.
Asked about the reaction of J&K Chief Minister Omar Abdullah who had opposed the party`s `tiranga yatra` recently, Hussain said, "If Abdullah is working for the benefit of the people, he should not have any objections to the visit."
Hussain said that the BJP was aware that the Centre-appointed interlocutors on Kashmir were doing their job, but added that "our committee will also take stock of the
situation and prepare a road map for Jammu and Kashmir".
The team includes DK Jain among others.
