It will be Mr Shah's first visit to Jammu and Kashmir after the BJP withdrew support to its alliance partner PDP, prompting Mehbooba Mufti to resign as the chief minister on Tuesday. The state has been placed under Governor's rule.
"Mr Shah is arriving here to pay homage to the founder member of Bharatiya Jana Sangh Shyama Prasad Mookherjee on his martyrdom day. He will check preparedness of the state unit of the party for the upcoming parliamentary election," state BJP president Ravinder Raina told reporters.
Mr Raina, who was flanked by senior party leaders including former deputy chief minister Kavinder Gupta, said Mr Shah would chair the election committee meeting of the party to discuss the issues for the next election.
"A large public rally will be organised in front of Brahmin Sabha Parade Road which will be addressed by Amit Shah. People in large numbers are likely to attend the meeting as there is huge appreciation in the masses on the sacrifice of the government made by the BJP in the interest of nation," he said.
"The party is ready and prepared to face elections whenever the process will be initiated as it believes that real power lies with the voters and leaders are to serve the masses and nation," he said.
Mr Raina said the party stood by all its commitment made to the people while in power and when the time came for decision for national interest, it didn't blink for a moment before taking decision to resign from the government.
He said security forces have free hand to deal with the worsening security situation in the state and to bring about the change towards peace.
