BJP candidate Jugal Kishore Sharma files nomination papers for Jammu Lok Sabha seat

J&K has been put on developmental path by Modi government, says Anurag Thakur

For the third consecutive times, Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) leader Jugal Kishore Sharma filed his nomination papers for Jammu parliamentary constituency with a hope to get the third term as Member Parliament (MP).

Sharma was accompanied by BJP star campaigner and union minister Anurag Thakur.

According to news agency, Sharma filed his nomination papers at the Deputy Commissioner’s office (Returning Officer) here today and after that held a road show towards Shaheedi Chowk.


There was great enthusiasm among his supporters who were chanting slogans of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and hoped that BJP will win the Jammu seat easily.

The BJP candidate filed his nomination papers around 1 pm and after that moved towards Shaheedi Chowk Jammu in a road show. At Shaheedi Chowk BJP had organized a rally where Anurag Thakur addressed the gathering and sought votes in favour of Jugal Kishore Sharma.

Talking to media persons Anurag Thakur said that Jammu and Kashmir has witnessed development in each and every nook and corner during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s tenure. “Be it IIT, IIM, 11 medical colleges, Vande Bharat train, four lane highways and six lane expressway, J&K has been put on the developmental path by the Modi government,” Thakur said.

He mentioned that peace has been brought in Jammu and Kashmir and violence level has come down drastically. “Modi’s love towards J&K can be determined by the fact that he removed Article 370, put an end to stone throwing and separatism, terrorism related incidents have come down by 75 percent, killings of locals have gone down by 81 percent and killing of security forces have also decreased by 50 percent,” the BJP star campaigner said.

“This has become possible only when BJP government led by Modi came at the centre and J&K gave us two MPs Jugal Kishore and Dr. Jitendra Singh,” he added.

Replying to question on electoral bonds issue and Congress party questioning the government’s one-sided approach, he said, “BJP has around 400 MPs in both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha and we have got Rs 6000 crore through electoral bonds whereas party like TMC has got Rs 1600 crores. Through electoral bonds the money has gone straight to political parties whereas during Congress regime 95 percent was going to pockets of their leaders.”

“I feel sorry for Rahul Gandhi. Will his party not file income tax returns and is his party above law? Congress party lost in Court and with Appellate authority and that is why they got demand notice,” the BJP leader said, adding, “In the eyes of law, Congress party is guilty as they haven’t followed the rules and that is why they didn’t get any relief.”

He also lashed out on AAP and said that those who have done corruption are behind bars.

The Jammu Lok Sabha seat has been represented by BJP MP Jugal Kishore since 2014 and this time also the party has put its weight behind him by giving him the mandate. This time after delimitation, twin districts of Rajouri and Poonch have been made part of Anantnag Lok Sabha seat and Reasi district has been made part of Jammu constituency. There is a direct fight between BJP and Congress party on Jammu seat like Udhampur as Congress has fielded former minister Raman Bhalla against Sharma.
