Gupta assured the delegation members that their demands are genuine and the matter shall be taken up the Governor and union Government as well. He said BJP is committed to the development of the rural hamlets of the state at par with the urban areas and creation of separate Zanskar District shall surely be helpful in achieving that. Gupta was also convinced on many points put forth before him and considered the ground for the creation of District as the need of hour.
The provision of Praja Sabha during Maharaja Hari Singh Rule and Government Order No. GRLA(A)-80F 1986 Dt. 10.06.186 during Governor Shri Jag Mohan tenure are the evident that the area is geographically fit for the creation of the District. He further said BJPis committed in making all out efforts to fulfil the demands of the people, with special focus on providing all basic amenities to the residents of state with the agenda of equitable development. He highlighted various works undertaken and completed during last five years by BJP is the state.
“He said Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is the party of all sections of society. He said Prime Minister Modi has special attraction for our state as is witnessed from the Special Package for our state in addition to the mega projects for all the three regions. He said it was due to Prime Minister Modi that we got the third administrative division in the state.
Gupta appealed the delegation to strengthen the BJP at grass root level and ensure victory for the party candidates in the forthcoming Parliamentary elections. He also emphasized on reaching out to public from door to door, conducting nukar meetings and arranging “Chai pe Charcha” to discuss the forthcoming elections. Hitting out at Congress, NC and PDP whose successive governments had ruled alternately or jointly before 2014 had ruined the State, this can be witnessed from the period we were in Government as partner and had received many packages for the State along with the Mega projects for all the three regions of the state. Gupta further added that “what J&K has achieved in the past four years was never seen in the earlier two decades”.
