Jammu: Former Congress leader and prominent businessman Y V Sharma on Wednesday joined the BJP here, pledging to work towards strengthening the party in Jammu and Kashmir.

Sharma, a former president of Jammu Chamber of Commerce and Industry (JCCI), quit the Congress in December last year. He, along with his supporters, was welcomed into the BJP fold by Jammu and Kashmir BJP president Ravinder Raina and MP Jugal Kishore at the party headquarters here.

“I am joining the BJP after being influenced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah, who have devoted full attention towards the sensitive Jammu and Kashmir, which is hit hard by Pakistan-sponsored terrorism over the past three decades,” Sharma said.

He said he will work in accordance with the policies and directions of the party with utmost devotion and dedication.

Expressing happiness over Sharma’s joining, Raina said the policies of the BJP-led central government were attracting people from all walks of life into the party fold as they benefited every section of the society in Jammu and Kashmir.
