I thank them for their continued support and assure them that the BJP will leave no stone unturned to realise their dreams," he tweeted.
"Congratulations to karyakartas of the state BJP and state president Ravinder Raina for BJP's impressive performance in the recently held urban local body polls. BJP has won 212 and 106 wards in Jammu and Kashmir region respectively. You have earned trust of the people," he added.
