BJP’s point man on Kashmir and National General Secretary, Ram Madhav is arriving here for a two day visit. The BJP leader will review the performance of party ministers, following complaints by BJP workers against its legislators and ministers before the Home Minister Rajnath Singh last week.
Pertinently, the visit assumes significance after the Jammu Chamber of Commerce and Industry (JCCI) called for a shutdown on Monday against “non-performance” of BJP ministers and “sheer discrimination” against the region.
Madhav is visiting Kashmir on Thursday and will visit Jammu on Friday, BJP State General Secretary (Organisation), Ashok Koul told a local news gathering agency, KNS.
“He (Ram Madhav) is meeting with party leaders and activists in Kashmir on Thursday and in Jammu on Friday,” Koul said.
Koul did not reveal whether Madhav is meeting Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti during his visit and dispelled speculations about any reshuffle in the portfolio of BJP ministers.
“These are all rumours,” he replied to a question about reshuffle of ministers.
Notably, ahead of Ram Madhav’s visit, another general secretary, Ram Lal also visited the state after Rajnath’s visit to look into the complaints by party workers and people in Jammu region.
