MIRPUR: The Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) government has yet to receive funds for building community bunkers in villages along the Line of Control where people were exposed to Indian firing and shelling. “We have approached the central government for provision of funds which we have not received yet,” Prime Minister of Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) Raja Farooq Haider said answering a question of MLA Malik Muhammad Nawaz. Speaking on the floor of the AJK assembly, PM Haider reminded that more than 410,000 people living along the LoC were demanding construction of community bunkers for safety from Indian firing. Regarding the administration, Haider said, his government would establish supremacy of law in the state. Speaking on the floor of the house on Thursday the prime minister said he respects the assembly, “I am here since 32 years, know everything about AJK history since 1947.”
