Minister: (PML-N believes in equal development of Azad Kashmir, Pakistan: Pervaiz Rashid)

ISLAMABAD: Information Minister Pervaiz Rashid has said that PML-N believes in equal development and progress of Azad Kashmir and Pakistan.

Addressing workers’ convection of AJK chapter of PML-N at Dheer Kot on Tuesday, he said PML-N will strengthen freedom struggle of the people of Kashmir.

The Minister asked the people of Kashmir to be aware of liars and turncoats, who will also come to AJK to mislead the people of Kashmir.

He said twenty two cancer hospitals are working across Pakistan, but Imran Khan deceives people by saying that only one cancer hospital built by him was operating in the country.

He said Imran Khan invested Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital donations of worth 30 million dollars in an offshore company and nobody knows about that amount.

Speaking on the occasion, Minister for Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit-Baltistan Chaudhry Barjees Tahir said the PPP-led AJK government did nothing for the people of the area and remained busy in plundering state’s resources.

He said PML-N would construct motorway from Islamabad to Muzaffarabad. He said the federal government was constructing schools in AJK. He said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif allocated Rs 113 billion for the development projects in Azad Kashmir.

Addressing the convention, Prime Minister’s Adviser on Political Affairs Dr Asif Kirmani said PML-N would field candidates in all the constituencies in AJK. He said ideological workers would vote for PML-N to bring prosperity to the area.
