Pakistan Observer - - KASHIMIR -

OUR COR­RE­SPON­DENT BHIMBER, AJK—Former AJK Premier and now Pres­i­dent Pak­istan Tehreek-eIn­saaf Bar­ris­ter Sul­tan Mah­mood Chaudhry has has as­sured that lo­cal bod­ies polls in the State would be held af­ter win­ning the general elec­tions. He ex­tended this as­sur­ance while ad­dress­ing an If­tar dinner here Satur­day at­tended by lo­cal city elite.

Bar­ris­ter Sul­tan said that both the PML-N and the PPP-AJK have be­come bank­rupt; they have no money with them now to what he called hire/pur­chase the can­di­dates. Their process has gone slow and their po­lit­i­cal pres­tige is fall­ing day by day in the eyes of the peo­ple. We are not trick­sters. We play straight pol­i­tics that ben­e­fits the peo­ple. We are from the peo­ple and peo­ple trust in us. We would not break their trust at any stage of power or pol­i­tics. Hon­est pol­i­tics is dwin­dling the state. We will ar­rest this ugly trend, he as­sured.

He told the lo­cal peo­ple that Dr Ina­mul Haq will be given most im­por­tant min­istry af­ter he wins the elec­tions. It is your duty to stand by Dr Ina­mul Haq in the race for elec­tions. There is greater ex­tent of en­thu­si­asm in play for the com­ing general elec­tions in AJK. It is a good sign of democ­racy. We wel­come it, we will pro­mote this cul­ture of tol­er­ance via democ­racy, he as­serted.

Bar­ris­ter Sul­tan in an en­thu­si­as­tic tone de­clared that all the three as­sem­bly of Bhimber would be bagged by PTI. He again clar­i­fied that only Dr Ina­mul Haq is the PTI can­di­date and there should be no doubt at all. He is lo­cal peo­ple’s voice and trustee.
