MUZAFFARABAD: The no-confidence motion – moved against Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) Prime Minister Chaudhry Abdul Majid – was taken back on Friday, Express News reported.

The move comes after Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif asked Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz’s (PML-N) members to stay impartial on the issue.

Two members of the Azad Kashmir Legislative Assembly (MLAs) from the ruling Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) had submitted the no-trust motion against him on July 22 in a surprise attempt to bring an in-house change in the assembly.

“Prime Minister Chaudhry Abdul Majid [has] failed to deliver [on his promise of] good governance, implement merit and root out corruption in government departments,” alleged the MLAs, Majid Khan and Muhammad Hussain Sargala, in the charge-sheet they submitted to the assembly’s secretary, Chaudhry Basharat.

This was the fourth time a no-confidence motion was moved against a sitting AJK prime minister. Three earlier motions were successfully passed and the premiers were sent home packing.

Roni | 9 years ago | Reply @jibran: I agree with you fully. Noon party would try to do the same in Sindh; this was only a trial balloon in AJK assembly. Gen Zia, and NS govt have done this in Sindh repeatedly and there is no shortage of Mir Jafers and Mir Sadiqs in all the provinces of Pakistan. The law and order situation in Karachi would be made worse and there would be an excuse that Sindh govt failed to make a change either with governor rule or in-house with the help of elements who cannot live without power.
