ISLAMABAD:

Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain on Friday said PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz were politically immature and totally ignorant of the history of Kashmir and their struggle for freedom.

Commenting on the speeches of Bilawal and Maryam during the AJK election campaigns, Fawad said both of them were trying to replace their parents in politics, who had looted and plundered billions of rupees from the national exchequer while in power. Maryam’s father (Nawaz Sharif) had even been declared an absconder by the courts, he added.

Fawad said the PPP and the PML-N had ruled Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) for 10 years and they should have better informed the public about their governments' performance. As they had nothing on their credit in that regard, that was why they were hurling political satires, he added.

The two parties had neither any political ideology nor any objective, as evident from the directionless speeches of their leadership, he said. Those who had ruled the country for over 30 years did not know about their policy.

The minister questioned how could the opposition leaders, who were afraid to mention the name of Indian spy Kulbhushan Sudhir Jadhav even during their respective tenures in government, devise policies for the country.

On the contrary, he said, Prime Minister Imran Khan was the true ambassador of Kashmir. Even today, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was being given a befitting answer by a leader like Imran Khan who is ruling the country, he added.

It was Premier Imran, who had again internationalised the Kashmir issue, by raising it all fora, including the OIC and the UN Security Council, Fawad said.
He asked how could those having money and assets abroad protect the ideology of Pakistan.

The people of Kashmir could no more be deceived as the broken roads along with lack of health and education facilities all across the AJK spoke volumes about the two parties’ apathy towards them, he added. APP
