The BJP will be a part of the next government formed in Jammu and Kashmir, senior party leader Ram Madhav said today, noting that the "jinx" of having never been in power in the state had been broken.
After the BJP pulled out of Mehbooba Mufti's coalition government on June 19, Governor's rule was imposed in the state
"I say with confidence that whenever the government is again formed in Jammu and Kashmir, the BJP will be a part of it," Madhav said, adding that the "jinx is broken".
Talking about the Peoples Democratic Party-Bharatiya Janata Party coalition government that collapsed in June, Madhav said there were difficulties, but despite that some things were achieved.
"We wanted to do a lot. But when we thought that things are not going according to us, we came out (of the government)," he said.
He said separatism since the last 70 years and terrorism since the last 30 years had hampered progress in the state.
Madhav said the BJP's four-pronged approach to tackle the security situation in the state would continue despite the party not being in power in Jammu and Kashmir.
"Kashmir is going nowhere. Kashmir is an integral part of India," he asserted.
