Tarun Chugh told ANI, "State Working Committee meetings are happening all over the country. BJP National President J.P. Nadda is going to attend the meeting here. It is because of the party workers that the BJP has formed the government for the third time."

On the Assembly elections likely to be held in Jammu and Kashmir by the end of September as per the timeline fixed by the Supreme Court, Chugh said, "It is the Election Commission's job to announce the elections. The BJP has always guarded democracy. The BJP is a worker-based party; we discuss and move forward together."

J-K is likely to see its first Assembly election in September this year, according to the timeline fixed by the Supreme Court after the erstwhile state's special status was scrapped in 2019. The last Assembly election in the erstwhile state was held in 2014.

The BJP-led government scrapped Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir in August 2019 and bifurcated the state into two union territories. There have been demands from political parties for early assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir and the restoration of statehood. Earlier, the Supreme Court had asked the Election Commission of India and the Centre to conduct polls by September.
