I can give big­gest sac­ri­fice for Quaid-e-Azam’s Pak­istan: Khalid

Pakistan Observer - - KASHMIR - OUR COR­RE­SPON­DENT

KHAI GALA, AJK - Chief of Jammu and Kash­mir Peo­ple’s Party Sar­dar Khalid Ibrahim Khan says his fight is aimed at restor­ing the sanc­tity of the elec­toral vote be­cause we want to run the coun­try on the ba­sis of democ­racy.

I can give big­gest sac­ri­fice for Quaid-e-Azam Mo­ham­mad Ali Jin­nah’s Pak­istan. No one can pre­vent us from con­test­ing com­ing gen­eral elec­tions in AJK.

Sar­dar Khalid was ad­dress­ing Naik Me­hboob Khan’s death an­niver­sary pub­lic gath­er­ing here Mon­day. “I am voter of Azad Kash­mir for the past over 46 years. There is no rea­son why should I not con­test the com­ing polls in AJK.

I con­sider my­self as a worker of Pak­istan Move- ment. I ten­dered my vote in AJK polls in 1970 when there was no sys­tem of iden­tity card. I am be­ing sub­jected to tests. We will go to the court of law against any black law. Our lead­er­ship had made de­ci­sion of af­fil­i­a­tion with Pak­istan in 1947”.

He paid glow­ing tributes to Sha­heed Naik Me­hboob Kiyani say­ing we honor him as na­tional hero. “I am a demo­crat and on the ba­sis of democ­racy we want to ad­min­is­ter the coun­try. I want that the prob­lems and is­sues of pub­lic must be solved at the thresh­old of peo­ple’s homes.

Why should they take rounds of of­fices in the pres­ence of democ­racy, he asked. He warned that con­spir­a­cies are be­ing upped to keep him out of elec­tion fight. We shall foil all such plots, he as­serted. I am a po­lit­i­cal per­son. I re­spect law and con­sti­tu­tion, he added.

He said that Ghazi-eMil­lat Sar­dar Mo­ham­mad Ibrahim Khan lib­er­ated the Azad ter­ri­tory and got the right of vote for the peo­ple of lib­er­a­tion re­gion. It is most sur­pris­ing that to­day con­spir­acy to keep me out of elec­tion race is be­ing hatched, but I warn the con­spir­a­tors that I would foil such ne­far­i­ous de­signs, he added. Sev­eral other lo­cal elites also ad­dressed.
