Resolution of Kashmir issue govt’s top priority: Rashid

MIRPUR, 13 JAN, (DNA) – Information Minister Pervaiz Rashid says resolution of Kashmir issue and end to ceasefire violation at the Line of Control is the top priority of the government.

Addressing the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz workers convention in Mirpur Azad Jammu and Kashmir on Wednesday, he said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had raised these issues in a recent meeting with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The Information Minister said the PPP government in Azad Kashmir miserably failed to deliver during the last five years. He said Neelum-Jhelum project was delayed by the PPP government despite spending huge funds.

Pervaiz Rashid said rapid development in AJK will only be possible if PML-N forms government in the state.

Federal Minister for Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit Baltistan Chaudhry Barjees Tahir addressing the convention said that PML (N) would get a clear victory in the coming elections in Azad Kashmir. He said that AJK needs leadership with vision which only PML-N leaders could provide.

Addressing the convention, Advisor to PM Dr. Asif Kirmani said that PPP leadership undermined the Kashmir issue by converting it into a bilateral dispute by signing Simla Accord with India; however, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif revived the Kashmir issue at the international fora. DNA
