SRINAGAR, Jan 30: Gearing up for panchayat elections in Jammu and Kashmir, Bharatiya Janata Party has asked workers to intensify party activities and organise door-to-door meetings.
Addressing party workers here today, BJP General Secretary Ashok Kaul asked them to gear up for Panchayat elections scheduled to be held in March this year.
Kaul while interacting with party people, including state office bearers, district presidents and senior workers asked them to intensify party activities, organise door-to-door visits and listen to the grievances of people.
In this regard, a special drive from the party would be organised from February 15 to March 5 to listen to the grievances of people and make general public aware about the scores of centrally sponsored schemes.
During the drive, importance of participating in the Panchayati elections process and its benefits would be taught to the general public. ”Panchayat election is the core of democracy and it has proved beneficial for general public as people directly get the chance to choose their leader who can mitigate their local problems,” Kaul said.
He also received feedback from the party workers about the present situation arising due to massive snowfall in the Valley and promised to raise the issue with the State Government and party ministers.
”Give me the feedback about the day to day issues faced by people in your respective areas, so that these can be raised with the Government for their redressal,” he said.
On the occasion, the party workers also observed two-minutes silence on the 69th death anniversary of father of the nation Mahatma Gandhi and those who sacrificed their lives for the country, including the soldiers and civilians buried alive under recent snowfall in Kashmir.
