Srinagar: BJP on Wednesday said it was ready for Assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir any time the Election Commission decides on holding polls in the state.
"As far as BJP is concerned, we were ready yesterday, we are ready today and we are ready anytime for the elections. We have no objections," BJP leader and MoS in Prime Minister's Office Jitendra Singh told reporters here.
Singh, however, said the timing of the elections in the state was the prerogative of the Election Commission of India.
"When elections are to be held, it is the prerogative of the Election Commission of India. It is an independent institution. It will not be fit for me to comment on that. If anyone does, he must be wiser than us," he added.
Barring National Conference, all political parties in the state have called for holding Assembly elections in the flood-hit state as per schedule.
Ruling National Conference has sought deferring the polls in order to focus on relief and rehabilitation of the flood victims in the state.
The Election Commission visited Kashmir last week to assess the situation in the flood-hit areas of the state in order to take a final call on the poll schedule.
