According to a report, the SMS number was launched in the presence of BJP IT Cell State Convener Jaidev Rajwal, state Vice President Sakina Bano, BJP spokespersons Dr Nirmal Kamal, Balbir Ram Rattan and Arun Gupta along with other party leaders.

While launching the number, Rajwal said, "BJP IT Cell has brought into use all the means of Social media to reach every area of Jammu and Kashmir. We have already been using facebook, Whats App, Twitter, Youtube, Email etc. and now adding one more facility, mobile sms number has been launched so that more and more people have access to the party.

BJP has set a lofty target of winning more than 44 seats in J&K assembly polls.

"Use of mobile has become a routine and maximum people have mobile phones and they can message us their views and suggestions by going to SMS message box of the mobile, writing JKBJP then leaving space and writing the desired message. It will prove to be very effective mean and act as a bridge between the party and people", he further said.

The move of launching the SMS number is a part of strengthening its "Mission 44+" (the required number of seats to make government in J&K) ahead of the assembly elections, that are scheduled to be held later this year.

In an attempt to mobilize people to be volunteers for the party's mission, it had launched "Mission 44+" stickers, last week.
