Ahead of BDC polls, Ram Madhav arriving in Kashmir to check party pulse


Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.


Srinagar, Oct 18 : Ahead of scheduled Block Development Council Polls in Kashmir slated for October 24, Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) Genearl Secretary Ram Mahav is all set to visit Kashmir on October 20 to check party’s pulse and to pass important directions to the party cadre.

According to wire service, Madhav will meet 500 party activists at a party convention at Tagore Hall, Srinagar on October 20 (Sunday).

Sources said that that Madhav will take stock of poll preparedness and pass necessary directions to the party cadre ahead of the BDC polls. He is likely to chair a crucial party meet at BJP headquarters in Srinagar.

So far, a total number of 15 Candidates have been elected as Councilors from BJP unopposed. Of this, six are from district Shopian, four from Pulwama including one Kashmiri Pandit, two from Bandipora and one from Ganderbal, Antnag and Budgam each.

BJP had given party symbol to 70 candidates for BDC polls in which 15 were elected unopposed so far. Sources said that other 60 were fielded as proxies. Pertinently, BDC polls are being held at a time when leaders of major political parties are either under house detention or lodged in preventive custody. The Governor administration has decided to go ahead with the BDC polls at a time when three main major political parties have decided not to take part in the BDC polls.
