These notifications will be effective immediately in Azad Kashmir, this was a permanent relief, which will be a part of the next budget.

There are fewer privileges than in Gakgat-Baltistan, 50% of the expenditure has been made in the budget of the Prime Minister’s House, for the first time in the history of Azad Kashmir, the cars of ministers have also been sealed, the government has saved and established a social welfare fund at a cost of ten billion.

It will benefit the downtrodden sections of society, whoever gives a fake certificate will be jailed for 3 years, the Prime Minister of the current government is not from any privileged class, and at the end of the financial year, people will have to pay the expenses of the Prime Minister House and Ministers.

He said that he was fully aware of the situation, formed a committee of ministers to negotiate with the Public Action Committee, and advocated the idea of joining Pakistan from the ancestors.

No single minister criticized the policy of the government, there was a coalition government, and everyone had their ideology. Party politics is their own, the government is running under the collective wisdom. Negotiation with the Public Action Committee was done that was headed by Raja Faisal Mumtaz Rathore. The quota of wheat is 300,000 tons, he said.

In response to another question, the Prime Minister said that the wheat mafia was powerful, all the flour used to be smuggled. In Azad Kashmir, there was a demand for power supply based on purchasing power, this done by the government of Pakistan

In response to another question, the Prime Minister said that the wheat mafia was powerful, all the flour used to be smuggled, today when the smuggling was stopped, this 3 lakh tonnes of flour are meeting the requirement.

Neelum Jhelum and Mangala are being handled by the Federal, the rate approved by the Government of Pakistan is the lowest in South Asia, this is the relationship between Pakistan and Kashmiris. The Pakistan Army has given testimonies on the LoC, and the commitment of the Chief of the Pakistan Army on Kashmir is clear, he said.

In response to another question, he said that the president of PTI Azad Kashmir was talking in vain, the wishes cannot be made into news. Nations cannot survive on subsidies, and unemployment has to be removed, if proper governance was done in the state, it would have become a welfare state in 5 years.

The self-made elite should be asked how many assets their ancestors had. There is a need to promote tourism in Azad Kashmir. Everyone will salute the bravery of the inspector, and give an award to the martyred inspector on the day of establishment. Illegal activities have been stopped, no minister has a corruption scandal, and the Public Action Committee also has confidence in me, by the grace of Allah and the grace of His Beloved Hazrat Muhammad (peace be upon him), he said.

The political activist who is afraid of death is against corruption. In Azad Kashmir, the prime minister has a heavy workload. The Azad Kashmir government has repaired things from the ruins. I cannot refuse the people’s demand as a political worker, the Prime Minister of Pakistan has shown compassion and given relief, and we have received the full support of the federal government. India failed to set fire to Azad Kashmir, he said.
