MUZAFFARABAD: Opposition parties have unanimously rejected the results of elections in Azad Kashmir and have decided to launch campaign to hold new elections. The PML-N leadership, including Azad Kashmir Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider, has rejected the results of the Azad Kashmir elections, saying that on the one hand we are talking about FATF and on the other hand money laundering in elections has bought people’s faith gone.
Addressing a press conference in Muzaffarabad along with other leaders including Azad Kashmir Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider and Ahsan Iqbal, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said that there is no precedent in the history of Azad Kashmir for the way Raja Farooq Haider has ruled for 5 years. He always upheld moral values. Today, the political environment and traditions in Azad Kashmir have been openly attacked.
He said that Donald Trump had said that he would play the role of mediator between India and Pakistan and this was equated by the Prime Minister to win the World Cup. We did not say anything on 370. The talk of creating a province with a dummy prime minister and finding a new path is a denial of UN Security Council resolutions, it is tantamount to losing Kashmir.
“If we leave today and start bilateral talks with India, this is not acceptable to the people of Kashmir. Kashmiris belonging to any political party are not ready to accept this,” he said. But in the last two and a half years, we have seen these links, how we talked to the US, how we talked to India, what happened in this election and what was said about Pakistan’s principled position on Kashmir. And there is a deviation from the only solution of Kashmir.
Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said that efforts are being made to bring to power people who want to come to power only for money, they do not want to come to serve you or solve the problems of Kashmir, they stand for Kashmir. Do not want to come forward to advance, their only goal is to gain power here and try to fulfill Imran Khan’s agenda on Kashmir but I am sure people of Kashmir will never accept these things.”We reject this election and consider it a robbery on the rights of Kashmir,” he said.
On this occasion, the Prime Minister of Azad Kashmir Raja Farooq Haider said during the press conference that I want to ask the people of Kashmir whether the government that goes out and becomes the ambassador of Kashmir and talks about our right to self-determination I don’t want to be given a limited right to rule for five years, what could be a bigger joke with Azad Kashmir than that you don’t want to give us the government we want.
He said that the Prime Minister has violated the law by mocking the government, state and constitutional institutions of Azad Kashmir. The Election Commission is saying that Ali Amin Gandapur should not be allowed to come and an FIR should be registered. Azam was walking around with him.
“They say that Imran Khan’s vote is a vote of money and fraud, and we completely reject the results of these elections and will launch a movement against it all over Azad Kashmir and abroad,” he said. I will run, I will bring the real face of Imran government before the people of Kashmir and Pakistan.
Raja Farooq Haider said that money laundering is a serious problem in Azad Kashmir, find out where this money came from, who brought it, on the one hand you are talking about FATF and on the other hand you are laundering money from Azad Kashmir and Buys people’s faith on the basis that you also have complaints against law enforcement.
He said that it was the misfortune of this country that it had Prime Minister Imran Khan, Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid and Federal Minister for Kashmir Affairs Ali Amin Gandapur, just as Imran Khan and his government paralyzed the Election Commission. No one did.
He said that the government tells me that it is your responsibility to hold transparent elections, if it is my responsibility then what is the role of the Election Commission, then what is the need for a commission in Azad Kashmir.
The Prime Minister of Azad Kashmir said that he did not reject any suggestion of the Election Commission but it was a decorated shop. The dacoits came and looted. Time will tell.
On the occasion, PML-N Secretary General Ahsan Iqbal said that the way Azad Kashmir elections have been rigged in the style of 2018 general elections, not only to protest but now we have to break this ritual and end it. Yes, the world has arrived in space but in 2021 we are crying for the sanctity of the vote, this is unacceptable.
He said that the manner in which Imran Khan has stolen the mandate of Kashmir is part of a global conspiracy aimed at sowing the seeds of Pakistan’s distance on the soil of Kashmir. Establish an independent state that is part of the agenda of global imperialism, helped to establish it and the supporters of the same global agenda provided money for this election which was used ruthlessly to make the government of Pakistan popular among the people of Kashmir. And promote hatred against the state.
Ahsan Iqbal said that Imran Khan said that even if the people of Kashmir decide to join Pakistan, I will give them another chance to establish an independent state separate from Pakistan. It is not just a joke with the people of Kashmir and their sacrifices facing the bullets of the Indian security forces with the flag of India on their chests but a conspiracy to reopen the 1947 Partition of India scheme, this statement is an attack on Pakistan which Can shake the foundations of the federation of this country.
He said that this is the government under which Narendra Modi has annexed occupied Kashmir, India did not dare to do so in 72 years, then how can they claim that the people of Kashmir Can vote
“Imran Khan used to talk about opening constituencies and bags, but wherever we asked for a recount, it was rejected. This is being done because theft will be caught,” he said.
The PML-N leader said that we reject the dacoity on the mandate of Azad Kashmir, we will fight together with the PML-N of Azad Kashmir and the Muslim League for the sanctity of the vote. N’s statement will succeed.
