The Nation  |  Jul 24, 2021

Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed said on Saturday that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) would sweep the election in the Azad Jammu & Kashmir (AJK).

He was talking to the media after inaugurating the succession certificate kiosk here at National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) Mega Centre on Edgerton Road.

Sh Rashid said that after elections in AJK, he would announce the victory of PTI at Laal Haveli Rawalpindi (his residence) on Sunday at 7pm.

He said the PTI would form government in the AJK valley, and then you will hear the wailing of the opposition parties.

Responding to a question, the interior minister said that Nawaz Sharif was also wailing while sitting in London that he was in great trouble, adding that Nawaz himself chose that path.

“If you (Nawaz Sharif) announce your return to country in the morning, I will send you a chartered plane in the same evening with full security of your choice. I want you to come back in good health, as it will be better for everyone,” he told the PML-N absconding leader.

Today, the PML-N posted Razia Butt’s novel on its twitter account, portraying that they had great pain for the poor, Sh Rashid said and added that on what grounds, the looters of the nation were claiming to be defenders of the poor Pakistanis.

They had always chose branded clothes, shoes and other articles for themselves at the cost of public exchequer, and always ignored the poor people during their tenures in government.

He said that the PML-N had no political future and Nawaz Sharif’s irresponsible statements would sink his party soon.

He recalled that Nawaz Sharif had always showed great love and affection for ‘Modi’ (Indian Prime Minister), and today, on what basis, Nawaz Sharif was making tall claims of being a Kashmiri. He said such statements were hurting the sentiments of the people of Kashmir.

Contrary to this, he said, Prime Minister Imran Khan had very effectively highlighted the Kashmir issue at every international forum, asserting that Pakistan would continue with its diplomatic, political and moral support for Kashmiris’ struggle for their right to self-determination.
