Jammu: Savita Gupta, hailing from Jammu, winter capital of Jammu and Kashmir, will be South Delhi Mayor.

"Savita Gupta from Jammu will head South Delhi Municipal Corporation as its Mayor," Jammu and Kashmir Prabhari (Incharge) Prof Jagdish Mukhi said while inaugurating the two-day State Working Committee meet at Nagbani in the outskirts of Jammu city this evening.

Mukhi, who was the chief guest on the occasion, said, "We were charged with deviating from the local issues and raising national issues in the recently held elections of Delhi Municipal Corporation."

He said the all-time high corruption and sky-rocketing prices may be not of any concern for the Congress and other political parties but for BJP these are the two important issues.

"Be it corruption or price rise, day-to-day life of a common citizen is affected and the BJP stands with a common citizen in his woes."

He said that the Congress has only one motive and that is to grab power on hollow slogans, mislead the masses and later work for the rich people.

In his presidential address during the meet, BJP State President Shamsher Singh Manhas said, "Although we are a political party but winning seats and forming government is not the only agenda."

"For us in J&K, where we considered this border state as crown of our mother land, our first and the most important mission is to ensure full integration of the state with the rest of the country as well as ensuring the honour of dignity of Bharat Mata," he said.
