HAVELI: Pakistan People’s Party leader Aseefa Bhutto Zardari has asserted that PPP would rescue the people of Azad Jammu and Kashmir from the “oppressors”, urging the people of the valley to vote for her party in the July 25 elections.
Addressing an election rally in AJK’s Muzaffarabad today (Saturday), Aseefa Bhutto said her party had issued a people-friendly manifesto this time, vowing that PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari would live up to the expectations of the Kashmiri people.
She also criticized Prime Minister Imran Khan for “allowing” India to revoke occupied Kashmir’s special status.”Some people came here today and made tall claims, but where were they when Narendra Modi attacked Kashmir?” she asked.
The PPP leader urged the people of Kashmir to support Bilawal just like they supported her mother, former prime minister Benazir Bhutto, and her grandfather, former prime minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto.
“Kashmir is close to my heart, and I will never forget the love and respect the people gave to me here today,” she said, adding that PPP had established the National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases (NICVD) and Sindh Institute of Urology and Transplantation in Sindh.
“Moreover, the roads of AJK were laid during PPP’s tenure”, she said, adding, “Benazir Bhutto had stated that our blood would fall where the sweat of Kashmiris falls.”
She said PPP established six universities in the region, including medical colleges in Muzaffarabad, Mirpur and Poonch and if the people of Kashmir give them another chance, they “would serve them again”.
