ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister’s Special Assistant Dr Asif Kirmani on Saturday said by committing to make no corruption in future in Azad Jammu Kashmir (AJK), the Pakistan Peoples Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto admitted that his party’s government in AJK was until now busy in corruption.

Referring to Bilawal Bhutto’s speech in Kotli, Kirmani said the PPP leader had not given any development programme for the AJK. It was the only Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leadership which thought of the people’s prosperity and had a roadmap in that regard, he added.

He said the popularity of PML-N in Azad Kashmir had got on Bilawal’s nerves which was visible from his speech. He seemed to be frightened, Kirmani said in a statement.

He said the PML-N leadership behaved courteously, but Bilawal made personal attacks instead of giving some future plan for the prosperity of the people of Azad Kashmir.

His speech could not impress the AJK people as they had rejected the politics of criticism without any reason, he added.

The adviser said the AJK people were dejected from the corrupt and incompetent PPP government. The upcoming elections would be an eye-opener for the PPP leadership who remained indulged in corrupt practices during its tenure rather than thinking about the welfare of people, he added.

He said the PML-N would form the next government in AJK with the support of people.
