May 13, 2014

 Federal Minister for Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit-Baltistan has said that Pakistan is stuck to the cause of Kashmir and will go on raising the issue on every international forum including United Nations. Less than 20% turn out in election in Indian Occupied Kashmir shows that Kashmiris have rejected the Election Drama staged by Indian Government. Pakistan will never give up supporting struggle of Kashmiris in the light of UN resolutions. He said this in a meeting with President of AJK in his office today. President of Azad Jammu and Kashmir Sardar Muhammad Yaqoob Khan called on Ch Muhammad Barjees Tahir and discussed various ongoing and proposed development projects of Azad Jammu and Kashmir.
            Federal Minister said that Mian Muhammad Nawaz Shrif is struggling to make Kashmir a developed territory. That’s why he has come up with a comprehensive development plan for AJK including construction of Railroad and connecting the region with economic corridor. President AJK applauded the splendid economic vision of Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif. He also praised the steps taken by PML-N’s government in order to strengthen democracy and promote democratic culture in the country. President AJK emphasized the need of construction of tunnel to connect far flung Leepa Valley of AJK with rest of the country. President was told that work had already been started and feasibility report had been submitted for a almost 4 Kilometer long tunnel.
