KAMALIA - Kashmir has been a long-standing problem between India and Pakistan, and India cannot unilaterally decide the fate of Kashmir.

This was stated by former federal minister Makhdoom Faisal Saleh Hayat at the second death anniversary of ex-minister Khalid Ahmed Khan Kharal here the other day. The anniversary was held at Kharal House, Kamalia. A large number of political and social figures attended the anniversary.  Faisal Saleh Hayat said even children of the subcontinent knew that India had occupied Kashmir. He flayed the Pakistani government for not taking any bold step on the Kashmir issue despite India’s attempt to revoke special status of Occupied Kashmir.

He said: “The present government has failed to eradicate inflation and unemployment. Inflation is increasing on a daily basis, and the economy of the country is declining with

every day passing. No relief has been provided to the poor over the past one year. The current government is simply putting all its energies into suppressing the opposition. The process of accountability has also become controversial. Discriminatory actions are being taken by the NAB which are being questioned by people. The NAB should conduct impartial accountability instead of troubling political leaders under government’s pressure.”
