Jammu: Softening its stand against six party legislators who had been suspended on charges of cross voting, the Bharatiya Janata Party is likely to contact them soon to once again win their confidence.

Party’s recently appointed In-charge of Jammu and Kashmir, Jagdish Mukhi has said that he is ready to meet the suspended party MLAs. In April, party high command had suspended six legislators on ground of cross voting in the Legislative Council elections.

Mukhi during his two day tour to the state said, “Cross-voting issue has come as a major setback for the party and suggestions will be taken from everyone for planning a strategy in this regard. BJP’s dominance will be restored in the state.”

When asked about strategy to tackle challenges before the party, Mukhi said, “Right now, I cannot say much in this regard. I will review the entire situation before forming any fresh strategy.”

He said the party will hold campaigns and protests against corruption and inflation in the state. All the party programmes will be headed by a senior leader in each district, he added.

It is noteworthy that after the expulsion of Chamanlal Gupta who was also found guilty of cross voting from the party, BJP has been delaying any stringent action against the remaining six legislators.
