Srinagar: Union Minister Jitendra Singh on Monday said that Bharatiya Janata Party will make history in Jammu and Kashmir Assembly elections.
“The huge turnout during the BJP rallies was historic and it has been proved that BJP is an organisation to reckon with in J&K,” Singh said.
Early trends show that the BJP and the PDP are in neck-to-neck fight.
The voter turnout in the state this year was 65 percent which was 4 percent more than the last Assembly elections held in 2008 development which has generated hope as well as anxiety among all major political parties.
While the ruling National Conference is claiming that higher voter turnout will benefit it at the hustings, PDP and BJP are maintaining that it is a reflection of the people's desire for a change.
Chief Minister Omar Abdullah and Opposition PDP's chief ministerial candidate Mufti Muhammad Sayeed are among the 821 candidates, who are seeking election from the 87 constituencies.
