Minister for Information, Broadcasting and National Heritage Senator Pervaiz Rashid Thursday urged the AJK people to give ‘Mukhtar Nama’ to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on July 21, the polling day, for effectively pleading the Kashmir cause.
Addressing PML-N workers, he said Kashmiris needed a brave leader like Nawaz Sharif to plead their case. Nawaz Sharif’s hands must be strengthened as weakening him would tantamount to weaken the case of Kashmiris, he added.
He said Azad Kashmir would be turned into a developed valley so that its inhabitants could have abundant employment opportunities in their native areas.
Two airports, he said, would be built in the valley to enable the overseas Kashmiris to land near their native cities instead of Islamabad or Lahore.
The minister said AJK would be provided five air ambulances for flying patients from far flung mountainous areas to hospitals.
The valley would be linked with railway, besides constructing hospitals at tehsil level.
He said the people would be provided basic amenities of life including health, education and infrastructure at their doorsteps.
