At an election rally in Tarar Khel, Imran rejected the talk of turning Pakistan-occupied Kashmir into a new province of Pakistan.
Elections are near in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan is making big promises every other day to woo voters amid the weak support of his party. Khan said on Friday that his government will hold a plebiscite for the people of Kashmir to find out whether they want to join Pakistan or an independent state.
Imran is making this promise to those who are demanding basic amenities like gas supply and good roads in this area. Instead of debating on the plight of the common people, the Pakistani Prime Minister has chosen to contest the elections by targeting the Indian leadership on the issue of Kashmir.
UN resolution reminded
According to a Geo report, at an election rally in Tarar Khel, Imran rejected the talk of turning Pakistan-occupied Kashmir into a new province of Pakistan. What I want to make clear now is that there were two UN Security Council resolutions in 1948, which gave the people of Kashmir the right to decide their future.
According to UN resolutions, people had to decide whether they wanted to join Hindustan or Pakistan. Imran said that I want to tell you all. Inshallah, a day will come when all the sacrifices made on behalf of the people will not go in vain. Allah will give you that right.
Preparing to hold elections on July 25
PoK is preparing to hold general elections for the assembly on July 25. At the same time, due to the increasing threat of corono, an appeal is being made to postpone the elections for two months. Last year, assembly elections were held in Pakistan-occupied Gilgit-Baltistan.
People asking for basic amenities
Most of the regions of PoK are demanding gas pipeline. The people here depend on cylinders or wood for cooking. There is also a problem of electricity here. Although there are many big and small power stations in this area, where more than 2500 MW of electricity is generated. People also complain that electricity from Mangla Dam and other projects is being delivered to Pakistani cities.
The federal government of the country has failed to provide basic facilities to the people here. Also, PoK has limited scope to choose any option other than joining Pakistan. According to an electoral law, all candidates in the assembly of the autonomous PoK government have to take an oath to support the accession to Pakistan.
