Masses weal our pri­or­ity: Kir­mani

Pakistan Observer - - KASHMIR -

RAWALAKOT—Spe­cial Ad­vi­sor to Prime Min­is­ter Dr Asif Kir­mani said Pak­istan Mus­lim League (N), if came to power in Azad Jammu Kash­mir, would pri­or­i­tize the wel­fare of masses through tak­ing con­crete steps.

Speak­ing at the PML-N Work­ers Con­ven­tion, Asif Kir­mani said “PML-N do not be­lieve merely on slo­gans but on prac­ti­cal steps for the wel­fare of the peo­ple”. He said the peo­ple of Azad Jammu Kash­mir were sen­si­ble and they would not be­lieve on the empty slo­gans.

“It was Prime Min­is­ter, Muham­mad Nawaz Sharif, who raised the is­sue of oc­cu­pied Kash­mir on in­ter­na­tional level and is sin­cerely fight­ing the case of Kash­miri peo­ple”. The PPP led Azad Jammu Kash­mir gov­ern­ment was in­volved in cor­rupt prac­tices and had not given any devel­op­ment pro­gramme dur­ing its ten­ure.

“If AJK gov­ern­ment will have been worked for the up­lift of the peo­ple dur­ing the last five years, it will not crit­i­cize oth­ers”, he said. He said that trans­par­ent elec­tions were con­ducted in Gil­git Baltistan for the first time in his­tory of the coun­try.

He said, on elec­tion day, the peo­ple of AJK would bring down those lead­ers who vis­ited them through he­li­copters. About Panama Leaks, he said the name of Prime Min­is­ter was not men­tioned in the Panama papers and Im­ran Khan, who was blam­ing the Prime Min­is­ter, was him­self the owner of Off­shore com­pany since 1973.

Im­ran Khan would also be held ac­count­able for the deeds of his two ATM ma­chines, Kir­mani added. Ad­dress­ing on the oc­ca­sion, Fed­eral Min­is­ter for Kash­mir Af­fairs and Gil­git Baltistan, Chaudhry Bar­jees Tahir said that AJK gov­ern­ment had not taken any steps for the devel­op­ment of the area and wel­fare of its peo­ple dur­ing the last five years.

He said PML-N prac­ti­cally be­lieved on the slo­gan of serv­ing the masses adding AJK gov­ern­ment re­mained busy in crit­i­ciz­ing oth­ers in­stead of ini­ti­at­ing any devel­op­ment pro­ject for its peo­ple.—APP
