Welcoming the new entrants, BJP Pradesh President Ravinder Raina and senior leaders Devender Singh Rana, Sham Lal Sharma , Surinder Choudhry and Balwant Mankotia described their joining as a step in right direction in the larger interest of peace and progress of Jammu and Kashmir that has undergone most turbulent times post 1990.
“Successive BJP Governments at the Centre in the intervening times during the past over three decades brought about a discernible change in the security scenario notwithstanding the heavy dent caused by the Congress during intervals but the NDA Government led by visionary Prime Minister Modi took terror head on and succeeded in breaking the vicious ecosystem comprising secessionists and their sympathizers with determination and precision”, Raina said.

He said the joining of political leaders into BJP is a continuous process that reflects peoples’ firm belief in the progressive and inclusive policies of the party. This is the logical culmination of exploitative politics, which has to happen, as the ocean is the final destination for streams to merge, he added.
