Claiming that Peoples Democratic Party and Bharatiya Janata Party coalition government was working strongly with better understanding, BJP national general secretary Ram Madhav today expressed happiness that more people in the Kashmir valley are joining the party.

BJP incharge of Jammu and Kashmir rushed here yesterday and had a detailed meeting with Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti.
The meeting between the two leaders took place hours after moderate Hurriyat Conference (HC) urged the coalition government to clear stand on construction of colonies for Sainiks and migrant pandits since leaders from the coalition government are issuing contradictory statements on these issues.

BJP media incharge in the Valley, Altaf Thakur said Madav said that the BJP- PDP coalition government has strong understanding in the state and both the parties have the same motive to usher new phase of development in the State.
At a meeting of state office-bearers and senior leaders of Kashmir here, Madhav expressed satisfaction that people have embraced the party’s agenda and policies both in the country and state. “We are happy that more and more people are joining pro- nationalist party in the valley,” he said, adding, this all was possible only because of the party’s straight policy of development and welfare of people.
