Be it Kashmir or Jammu; Kathua or Kishtwar or Rajouri-Poonch....steps are being taken to alleviate the sufferings of masses. If you talk about (Covid) vaccination, J&K is number one across India. Whole population of J&K enjoys health cover. On security front, the government of day is all out against terrorism and terrorists,” he stated.
When asked about the agenda of BJP Core group meeting, Chugh said that it was a routine core group meeting where the party leaders strategized to gear up for challenges ahead, strengthen BJP and prepare for ensuing elections. He stated that he had come to participate in the function related to Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) ideologue and leader of the Bharatiya Jan Sangh Pandit Deendayal Deendayal Upadhyaya here organised by BJP J&K president Ravinder Raina.
