In J&K, BJP has 2 Member of Parliaments (MP) and 25 Member of Legislative Assembly (MLA).
Recently, some news channels reported that there are some problems in the BJP-PDP relations and a few BJP members may be replaced in J&K government led by Mehbooba Mufti (PDP). It was also reckoned that his visit is related to the current situation of J&K. However, Mr Shah, during an informal chat, told the reporter that his visit has nothing to do with the disturbing situation of J&K and it is purely focused to strengthen party and its extension.
