SRINAGAR: National General Secretary of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and party incharge for Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) and Ladakh, today said that a new era of development and growth has been ushered in with the vision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Addressing a gathering here he said there is a new environment in the region and the age-old politics of Muftis and Abdullahs is being clearly rejected.

He underscored the noticeable transformation in the region, citing the operational schools, absence of strike calls disrupting daily life, and uninterrupted internet services as evidence of progress. Chugh highlighted that these improvements are distinct under BJP rule, contrasting with the practices observed during the reign of NC and PDP.
During the proceedings, Tarun Chugh highlighted the party’s commitment to garnering votes through the showcasing of its achievements, rather than indulging in politics centered around sensitive issues.
