BJP strengthening support base in J&K ahead of 2014 polls
Jammu: BJP on Monday said several Muslims in Jammu and Kashmir had joined the party, which is making all efforts to strengthen its base in the state ahead of the Assembly polls and General Elections due next year.
BJP MLA and party`s state president Jugal Kishore Sharma asserted that BJP would emerge as the single largest party in the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly elections due next year by winning at least 35 seats, including 28 from Jammu, two from Ladakh and five from Kashmir.
He also said his party would win a minimum of three Lok Sabha seats in the state during the General Elections.
"BJP is set to win a minimum of three Lok Sabha seats in the state, including two from Jammu and one from Ladakh," Sharma told reporters here.
The BJP lawmaker said the state unit of the party was working to realise party`s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi`s "Congress-free-India" and win over 272 seats across the country in the Lok Sabha polls.
