MIRPUR (AJK)

Special Assistant to the Prime Minister Dr Asif Kirmani lambasted the PPP-led AJK government for “indulging in massive corruption, malpractices and irregularities’ during their current regime of over four years.

He said that AJK ruling clique stands at the plastic legs since it has no courage to face the massive allegations of corruption and malpractices leveled against it. He pointed out that the entire AJK ruling junta flayed the Kashmir Affairs Minister Barjees Tahir when he identified and talked of the ill deeds and large corrupt practices of the AJK rulers including Prime Minister Abdul Majeed.

Dr Kirmani said that the AJK rulers should refrain from using the filthy language against their political rivals – the PML (N) leaders – who, he added, cannot respond to them in the same manner.

He accused the AJK prime minister of digesting the funds provided by the government of Pakistan for the sake of the development of AJK. He said that the day of accountability of the AJK prime minister and his accomplices is near. Majeed, he observed, has started smelling the sword in form of vote against him in the forthcoming general elections in AJK – following his worst corrupt era in the power.

Referring to the local public problems raised in the address of welcome by the local PML-N leader Ch Saeed, Dr Kirmani said that all the long-standing demands including the supply of gas in rest parts of Mirpur, early completion of Rs7 billion greater water supply and sewerage project in the city, linking of Mirpur with CPEC network and other issues would be met by the federal government on priority grounds soon.

He said that Kashmir issue will be settled in line with the aspirations of the people of Jammu & Kashmir under the spirit of the United Nations resolutions under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

He continued that PM Sharif always made alive the Kashmir issue raising it at each international forum in most excellent manner with his high and great ability and strategy. He recalled that in the past, then Indian Prime Minister Wajpayee drove to Lahore and recently Prime Minister Modi landed in Lahore. He added that the Kashmir issue will be settled during the sitting regime of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

Dr Kirmani said that Pakistan is at the path of speedy progress and prosperity as the development projects are underway. He said that the day is not far away when Pakistan will emerge as a developed nation. He said that the fruits of the speedy progress and prosperity of Pakistan will also reach every nook and corner of Azad Jammu & Kashmir.

He said the speedy progress and prosperity in Pakistan would obviously open the similar avenues of socio economic uplift and prosperity in Azad Jammu Kashmir. He underlined that Nawaz Sharif always did the politics for the sake of the human values and not for the sake of power. He said that Nawaz Sharif extremely loved the people of Kashmir. He said that the era of progress and prosperity is going to begin in Azad Jammu & Kashmir under the leadership of the PML (N) after the forthcoming general elections in AJK.

He recalled that before 2013 general elections, the country had reached at the verge of destruction following the crucial issues of energy crises, terrorism and the worst economy due to the poor policies of the outgoing regime. He said that now the things have rapidly changed with the advent of rapid progress and prosperity.
