BJP national general secretary Ram Madhav said ceasefire in Jammu & Kashmir was announced during Ramzan festival keeping sentiments of people in mind and on Chief Minister Mehbooba’s suggestion. But, Pakistan took advantage of the ceasefire, he criticised. To a question, Ram Madhav has mentioned that the mess was created in Jammu & Kashmir by successive governments from 1966. He strongly denied of BJP breaking alliance with the PDP with an eye on elections in 2019. The BJP leader made it clear that the BJP would have broken alliance much earlier but respected the alliance dharma.
