"Paswan and his son Chirag Paswan - both elected MPs from Bihar - will soon visit Jammu to boost the morale of the party workers," J&K Pradesh President of LJP Sham Lal Gupta told reporters in Jammu.
    
Gupta said that both would chalk out strategy for the forthcoming assembly elections in the state, which the J&K unit of the party would like to fight in alliance with BJP.
    
He said that the party would apprise Paswan about the problems being faced by the people in the Jammu, particularly the ‘discriminations’ meted out to the region by ‘Kashmir-centric’ ruling dispensation in the state.
    
The other problem to be highlighted is denial of citizenship and permanent state resident rights to the 1947 refugees from West Pakistan settled in Jammu, most of whom are scheduled caste, he said.

The state unit of the party would urge upon them to take up these issues in Parliament as well as with the government, he said.
