MIRPUR - Lashing out at Washington, PML-N chief Mian Nawaz Sharif here Monday accused it of blatantly ruining the sovereignty of Pakistan through various means, including repeated drone attacks. Nawaz was addressing a widely-attended public meeting at Islamgarh, a town in the outskirt of Mirpur, in connection with the election campaign of his party candidates contesting the scheduled June 26 AJK Legislative Assembly elections. Nawaz said that the United States was indulging in open attacks on our sovereignty and our rulers are responding as silent spectators to this sheer violation and barbarity against the motherland. Referring to the tragic incident of PNS Mehran, Karachi, the PML-N chief said that the Navel Chief had claimed that there was no security lapse in the incident. Pakistan is facing worst jokes in its history one after the other, Nawaz said. Lambasting the former dictatorial regimes, Nawaz said that had country not suffered from repeated dictatorial eras and if the dictators had not dissolve the top judiciary and toppled elected democratic rules, Pakistan and its present young generation would not have been facing such worst condition. Nawaz said one military dictator put a prime minister to gallows and another arrested an elected prime minister after a coup and dispatched him abroad in chains. How the country could smoothly run the path of speedy progress and prosperity when it faces repeated dictatorships. Nawaz feared that Pakistan could fall deeper in the precipice if the mandate of 180 million Pakistanis was ruined time and again. He pointed out that the PML-N governments in the past were toppled twice. He said that by toppling an elected democratic government of the PML-N, Musharraf created a bad image for Pakistan abroad at a time when the country was being brought in the ranks of the developed nations through a network of motorways. He accused Musharraf of authoring loadshedding in Pakistan. He also held Pervez Musharraf responsible for the killing of top Baloch leader Akbar Khan Bugti besides indulging in bloodshed of innocent people in Karachi with the alleged connivance of the MQM. Expressing grave concern over the delay in the formation of an inquiry commission to probe the May 2 US Abbottabad raid to kill Osama bin Laden (OBL), Nawaz asked President Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gillani to let the nation know about the causes of delay in the formation of the judicial commission. He said that no such type of extra-ordinary incident has taken place ever before in the history of Pakistan. The PML-N leader alleged that the basic realities about the incident were being concealed, which, he maintained, was tantamount to pushing Pakistan towards further destruction. Criticising various policies of the government, Nawaz Sharif blamed that those ruling the country were involved in misdeeds and corruption. He said that Supreme Court exposes those involved in misdeeds but the government inducts the same persons on high position. We will not allow Pakistan and the people of Pakistan to be blackmailed at the hands of President Zardari and the system be corrupted. Nawaz said we will not allow Azad Jammu Kashmir to face the same fate as Pakistan was passing through at present following the repeated wrongdoings and misdeeds of the PPP-led coalition regime. He said that the PML-N has entered the AJK elections arena not only to change the fate of Azad Jammu Kashmir, but also change the fate of the entire region with a broad-based welfare and uplift programme to be implemented on coming into power in AJK. Nawaz Sharif will perform for the betterment of AJK people in the same spirit as was ever demonstrated for the people of Pakistan - since Pakistan and AJK are part and parcel, he added. He invited the AJK people to vote for the PML-N candidates to make him victorious a single majority party in the elections to form the next government in Azad Jammu Kashmir. Nawaz announced that on coming to power in AJK, the PML-N will set up an airport in Mirpur besides laying the network of motorways to facilitate the AJK people with latest means of travelling and communications. Nawaz also declared that on coming to power in AJK, the PML-N will perform an active role to ensure early peaceful settlement of the Kashmir issue in line with the aspirations of the people of Jammu and Kashmir, the prime stakeholders to the lingering dispute. This he said while addressing a mammoth public meeting in Bhimbar, Azad Kashmir, on Monday. They rally was addressed among others by the PML-N candidate Ch Tariq Farooq, a former advisor to the prime minister. He said that early peaceful settlement of Kashmir is the need of the hour for durable peace only in South Asia but also the world. Later addressing an election rally in Dadayal, Mirpur, on Monday night, Nawaz said that PML-N the youth in AJK were facing unemployment and the people were scared of terrorism and the loadshedding of gas and power. The rally was for the election campaign of PML-N candidate Raja Ali Zaman. He called upon the youth to lend all their energies to make Pakistan a fully developed state. Azad Jammu and Kashmir will soon pass through reforms, he said. He said three years ago he had no complaint against the government because at that time Zardari had started political reconciliation and had pledged that the destiny of Pakistan and Azad Kashmir would be changed through neat and clean politics and no institution would be allowed to exceed from its limits or violate the constitution. However, he said, these pledges did not materialise and corruption got rampant in Pakistan under Zardari. We had made a pledge with Zardari that the situation would change in Azad Kashmir and not made the pledge that we would support law-breakers or weaken the institutions, he said. Nawaz Sharif said there will be no peace or stability in the region without the resolution of the Kashmir dispute, which also has been a reason for tension between Pakistan and India for many decades. It is pertinent to mention here that Nawaz Sharif has not come in Mirpur city where all arrangements for the demo and rally were on the move a day before yesterday. After neglecting the candidate of PML-N in LA-3 constituency in the city of district Mirpur, ex-AJK minister Arshad Mehmood Ghazi stood away from contesting the forthcoming elections on the ticket of PML-N and also announced boycotting the elections at his residence. However, sources in PML-N told The Nation that the leaders of PML-N are in contact with their annoyed candidate in Mirpur city and they would arrange his meeting with the PML-N chief within days. The stage is set for competition among Muslim Conference, PML-N and Pakistan Peoples Party during Azad Kashmir elections. Monday saw Nawaz Sharif launching a full-fledged election campaign in Azad Kashmir. Nawaz is also expected to address a public meeting in Neelum valley on June 24.
