PM Nawaz con­sid­ers Youth Wing front­line force of PML-N: Kir­mani

Pakistan Observer - - NATIONAL -

ISLAMABAD—Prime Min­is­ter Muham­mad Nawaz Sharif al­ways gave im­por­tance to the Youth Wing and con­sid­ered it the front­line force of Pak­istan Mus­lim League-Nawaz (PML-N), Spe­cial As­sis­tant to the PM on Political Af­fairs Dr Asif Kir­mani said Wed­nes­day.

Ad­dress­ing the AJK-chap­ter Youth Wing of PML-N, he said young­sters of Azad Jammu and Kash­mir (AJK) had to play a key role in the up­com­ing gen­eral elec­tions of the val­ley. He said the PML-N gov­ern­ment had a plan to lay rail­way track from Islamabad to Havelian en­route Mur­ree and Muzaf­farabad. The youth would hoist the party-flag and prop­a­gate its agenda of progress and pros­per­ity in AJK, he added.

Kir­mani said the AJK peo­ple had great ex­pec­ta­tions from the youth. The Prime Min­is­ter, he said, had brought $ 46 bil­lion Chi­nese in­ve­ment in the coun­try, which would help fur- ther strengthen na­tional econ­omy and im­prove en­ergy sit­u­a­tion. Kir­mani said the PML-N wanted to see all dis­tricts of AJK de­vel­oped and pros­per­ous, be­sides pro­vid­ing mod­ern ed­u­ca­tion and health facilities there.

He asked the Kash­miri youth to hoist the party flags at their homes, shops, mo­tor­cy­cles and ve­hi­cles, adding that the PML-N had to de­feat the corrupt and power hun­gry el­e­ments dur­ing the AJK elec­tions. The Prime Min­is­ter, he said, wanted that chil­dren of com­mon men should have equal right to get ed­u­ca­tion so that they could be­come doc­tors, ad­vo­cates and se­cure high-level jobs.

The PML-N was strug­gling to change the ex­ist­ing sys­tem so that ev­ery cit­i­zen should have equal rights in all fields, he added. In Azad Jammu & Kash­mir (AJK), he said, the Neelum-Jhelum project had been aban­doned and it was the PML-N gov­ern­ment which restarted it.

Kir­mani said the PML-N would take along those, who could not get the party tick­ets, in the elec­tion cam­paign and devel­op­ment of the val­ley. He said the PML-N would con­tinue pub­lic con­tact cam­paign dur­ing the holy month of Ramzan and af­ter Eid.

He said, “We feel proud that the Pak­istan Mus­lim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Youth Wing held suc­cess­ful work­ers con­ven­tions and formed elec­tion mon­i­tor­ing cell to enure vic­tory of the PML-N with ma­jor­ity in AJK and to stop rig­ging in up­com­ing elec­tions.” He said Prime Min­is­ter Muham­mad Nawaz Sharif had great love and af­fec­tion for ev­ery nook and cranny of Kash­mir.

Af­ter Quaid-e-Azam Muham­mad Ali Jin­nah, he said, it was Muham­mad Nawaz Sharif who made the Mus­lim League a pub­lic party. He said the PML-N al­ways faced dic­ta­tors bravely. He said the Quaid-e-Azam was the man of prin­ci­ple who used to sit with youth on ground and talked with them friendly.

Kir­mani said mak­ing com­par­i­sion be­tween state and non-state par­ties would be harm­ful for the free­dom strug­gle of Kash­mir. “Pak­istan means Azad Jammu and Kash­mir and Azad Jammu Kash­mir means Pak­istan,” he said. He said de­ci­sion to award tick­ets in AJK had been made in con­sul­ta­tion with the AJK lead­er­ship and par­lia­men­tary board.

“With the strength of Kash­miri youth, we will make the PML-N more strong,” he said. He said it was re­spon­si­bil­ity of the youth to make ef­forts for the suc­cess of the PML-N in Azad Jammu & Kash­mir in the up- com­ing elec­tions. He said the era of progress, pros­per­ity and devel­op­ment in Kash­mir would come. “Both sides of the Kash­miris will have an op­por­tu­nity to sit to­gether, and ev­ery body wants that Kashm­ris should meet with each other,” he said.—APP
