Jammu: Welcoming the announcement of poll schedule for Jammu and Kashmir today, BJP said it is ready for the elections and is confident that it will form its first government in the state.

BJP state president and MP Jugal Kishore Sharma said the party leadership and activists at the state, district, mandal and booth levels are ready for these elections.

The party welcomes the announcement of the poll schedule, he said in a statement.

The Election Commission announced a five-phase election to the state assembly beginning November 25.

"Some political parties were opposing holding of the polls on one pretext or the other as they were feeling isolated and insecure and did not have courage to face the people of the state in the elections," he alleged.

"As far BJP is concerned, the party cadre is ready to go to the public. Our Mission 44+ will be achieved and BJP will form its government for the first time and create history in Jammu and Kashmir," he said.
