While addressing at an event in the national capital on November 19, the National General Secretary of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Ram Madhav said, "Let me clarify on the question of new political class being cultivated from Delhi, no such thing happening from our side. We have huge respect for political leaders of different parties in the valley. Earliest possible, they will resume their political activity." "Omar Abdullah or Mehbooba Mufti, once they have the opportunity to come back and restore their political activity, I am sure they will definitely have the role to play in state politics. But, emergence of a newer leadership is a continuous process," Madhav added. "It happens in the rest of the country, it happens at Delhi-level. So, we are in favour of new leaders coming from the grassroots level of the Valley," he further stated.
