For the first time BJP has stated that there is expectation of the Assembly polls Jammu and Kashmir by March – April next year.
“ This is our expectation,” said BJP General Secretary Ashok Koul while talking to media in Bandipore on Wednesday . He was there in connection with forthcoming visit of Home Minister Amit Shah, who is scheduled to address a rally in Baramulla on October 5.
“ Once the electoral rolls are finalised and published on November 25, we think election process will get underway,” Koul said.
He said that January and February are not suitable for elections in J&K due to weather conditions and it’s obvious that elections will be conducted in March-April next year.
He said that the publication of final electoral roll would be completed on November 25, following which voter list will be out and after that Elections Commission will start the preparation for conducting the elections in J&K.
While replying the question on daily-wagers, Koul said all of them will be included in minimum wages act very soon.
