Regarding the party’s public contact campaign, Barrister Chaudhary said that owing to the federal government’s policies of accountability and transparency, people were joining it (PTI) in droves. He said that the peoples’ overwhelming response and their enthusiasm to join the PTI was a reflection of the changing political environment in the liberated territory (AJK). “This changing political environment in the region amply demonstrates that the PML-N, MC and PPP would suffer a shocking defeat in the next elections”, he added.
Expressing satisfaction over Prime Minister Imran Khan’s Kashmir policy, the members of the governing body said that the PM IK had played a key role in seeking China’s support as a result a threadbare discussion on the situation in Indian occupied Kashmir was held at the UN Security Council meeting after a hiatus of four decades.
While expressing satisfaction over the party’s mass contact campaign and the enthusiastic reception and response from the general masses the Governing Body reiterated the party’s pledge to initiate across the board accountability in the region to ensure good-governance and supremacy of the law. The Governing Body reminded the incumbent government of the AJK that implementation of mega projects (establishing of special economic zones in Mirpur and construction of expressway) guaranteed to the AJK under CPEC was the sole responsibility of the PML-N government.
Lamenting the loss of students due to lack of high-speed internet during the COVID-19 pandemic the Governing Body urged the government of AJ&K to make serious efforts to ensure the much needed 4G internet in the region. The Governing Body unanimously welcomed the issuance of Insaf Health Card by Prime Minister Imran Khan to all the citizens of the AJK and said that after the Rs 3.5 billion package released for the victims of the Line of Control, this was yet another gift for the people of the region. Welcoming the resources provided to Azad Kashmir by the federal government, the meeting said that the PML-N government should refrain from doing politics on these non-political public-welfare schemes.
Expressing serious concerns over the prevailing political and human rights situation in the Indian held Kashmir the meeting observed that despite the state oppression Modi has miserably failed to subdue the will and voice of Kashmiris who have rejected India’s 5th August move and subsequent actions taken to erase Kashmir’s distinct identity. “Despite its tall claims, the Modi government has not been able to launch a political process, nor has any significant Kashmiri political party endorsed its August 5 illegal actions”, the participants of the meeting said adding that it speaks volumes about Narendra Modi’s failed Kashmir policy.
The participants of the meeting of the Central Governing Body expressed their grief and anger over the fact that in three months, about 300 Kashmiris were martyred and the state terrorism increased dramatically. They appealed to the international community to take effective notice of the dire human rights situation in the region and help create a congenial atmosphere wherein people of the region could ascertain their political will by exercising their right of self-determination guaranteed to them by the international community.
