The J&K unit of BJP has decided to celebrate the first anniversary of abrogation of Article 370 and bi-furcation of the erstwhile state of J&K into two UTs in a big way.
The 15-day celebrations will be held from August 5 to 20 and during this period the party will organise various programmes across J&K and Ladakh.
On Wednesday, a meeting of senior leaders of the party was held in which the party decided to rope in beneficiaries of the abrogation of Art 370, especially Valmikis, Gorkhas and west Pakistani refugees. The party has decided that the Tricolor will be hoisted on every roof-top of Jammu province.
Speaking on the occasion, party general secretary (organisation) Ashok Koul impressed upon all BJP leaders to ensure that the ‘pakhwara’ was celebrated like a festival in every nook and corner of the region. He discussed various programmes to be conducted during the whole ‘pakhwara’.
The party has already appealed to all citizens to illuminate their houses, chowks and prominent buildings in their areas with “deepmala” on August 5.
