"BJP has won over the hearts and minds of people of J&K including Pirpanjal districts by the public friendly programmes and decisions. There is no scope of people falling pray to the baseless sentimental exploitation by the old rot of politicians and which is why people of J&K have decided to support and vote for BJP in the days to come", said Dr Andrabi.
