Bandipora: The BJP Jammu and Kashmir general secretary Ashok Koul Saturday attended workers meet in north Kashmir’s Bandipora district for some ‘election tips’ to workers so to achieve maximum voter turnout at ‘booth levels’.
Koul while talking to the reporters said that the ‘elections were most likely due in two to three months after the delimitation commission submits its final report’.

He said that the party’s efforts are always in process to prepare for the elections and ‘likewise today too we have given some election tips to the workers which are visiting the booths and fielding party workers there at booths’.
The special attention, he said is being paid to reach larger people with information on schemes launched by the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi.
Koul while reacting to questions of elections in Jammu and Kashmir said that the delimitation commission had collected enough information on Jammu and Kashmir and should be ready with a preliminary report and as soon as the committee submits its final report the elections will be held after two to three months.
He said the 90 seats which are in the UT are to be reorganised and the delimitation commission was in process of notifying them.
Stating that the commission was independent and working under the act, ‘there was no scope for suspicion of foul play.
