PML-N to win elections in AJK: Pervaiz Rashid


Federal Minister for Information Pervaiz Rashid and Special Assistant to the prime minister, Asif Kirmani have said that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) will win the upcoming elections of Azad Kashmir Legislative Assembly.

Addressing an Iftar dinner hosted in hounor of party workers in Dudial on Friday, Pervaiz Rashid said PML-N formed government three times, fulfilled its promises and completed the projects announced by it. “When we came to power we got unfinished projects. The projects were like graveyards. We got Neelum Jhelum project whose cost was escalating.”

The PML-N government promised to complete Neelum-Jhelum project in three years and would do it in time, he added.

“Our government completed projects left unfinished by the previous government. We do positive politics instead of resorting to abuses,” he remarked.

Pervaiz Rashid said ambulance service in Azad Kashmir and Gilgit Baltistan was needed as these were difficult areas and it took time to take patients to hospitals by roads.

Asif Kirmani said political parties should act as partners and not adversaries, to resolve issues of poverty, ignorance, unemployment and disease.

He said July 21 was a day of accountability and PML-N wanted that elections in AJK should be held in a free, fair and transparent manner.  He said PPP government in AJK indulged in corruption in five years, had a shameful attitude with bureaucracy and in a recent bye election resorted to malpractices.
