DHERKOT - Information Minister Pervaiz Rashid has said that PPP and Imran Khan are afraid of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for his programmes for the development and prosperity of the country.

Addressing workers convention here on Monday in connection with Azad Kashmir elections, the minister said Imran Khan stages Dharna whenever the government of the PML-N takes steps to improve economy.

He said those doing politics of conspiracies were again planning to start their agitation but they would be defeated on 21st July by the people of Azad Kashmir through their vote.

He asked the people to vote for the PML-N and assured that it would implement its manifesto after coming to power.

He said electricity projects have been lingering on during theA government of PPP and now the PML-N would complete them in two years time in Azad Kashmir. He said Nawaz Sharif has the key to resolve the Kashmir issue.

He said the prime minister has expressed solidarity with the Kashmiris suffering in Indian occupied part of Kashmir and solidarity day will be observed on Tuesday and Black Day on Wednesday to show to the Kashmiris across the LOC that they were not alone and people of Pakistan are with them.

He said people of Dherkot have closed all exit points for those who want to run away rather than facing the verdict of the masses.

The information minister who addressed the function along with Political Adviser to PM Asif Kirmani said he was highly impressed by the large number of people present.

Earlier, addressing a function in Rawalakot following the joining of PML-N by AJK Prime Minister’s Adviser Dr Aleem, Pervaiz Rashid said PML-N will implement its manifesto in letter and spirit after victory in AJK elections for the betterment of the Kashmiri people.

He said the Kashmiri people want progress of the kind seen in Rawalpindi and Lahore.

He said PML-N has gained popularity in Azad Kashmir, as it is a party that is custodian of democratic values. He said the agenda of PML-N is based on welfare and prosperity of the masses.

Addressing on the occasion Asif Kirmani said no other party contesting the AJK elections has provided such a people friendly election manifesto as given by PML-N.
