After roping in the Task Force founder Farooq Khan in Jammu, the BJP on Sunday announced its candidate for the Lok Sabha from Kashmir. They were formally introduced in a press conference at party’s Rajbagh office by Ramesh Arora, party’s state vice president.
Aroda said the party is fielding G M Mir from north Kashmir Baramulla, Mushtaq Noorabadi from south Kashmir Islamabad and Arif Raza from Central Kashmir Srinagar constituency.
The party press release issued in the press conference talks about 11 things, which apparently seem to be state specific. These include Rs 50,000 grant for a female for Nikkah, old age pension to everybody after 60 years, peace and development, “stephens” (it seems it is stipend) to all educated youth, development of all three regions, action against corrupt politicians and “burocrats”, solution to all issues on negotiation table, encouraging tourism, food to every one, electricity and water to every house and an investigation into how central sponsored schemes are being misused by political leaders.
