Islamabad: Former Prime Minister Azad Jammu and Kashmir Sardar Sikandar Hayat Khan said that the people can come into power through votes but no military democracy can be run in Azad Jammu and Kashmir . He stated this while addressing in an inauguration ceremony of District Press Club Sidhnowati. He said that no military democracy could be allowed in Azad Jammu and Kashmir and through voting process any one can come into power . We have forgotten the ideology of Pakistan. Muslim Conference is the name of an ideology and we cannot leave its ideas. We do not know that what is Pakistanís stand on Kashmir issue. Someone talks about the establishment of United State of Kashmir and someone talks about the division of Kashmir State into 7 pieces. He also said that we have not done any thing against merits in my Government. The opposition was with me and my soul is relaxed. Now the Prime Minister has just announced but work on these projects could not be started as yet . He further stated Prime Minister Azad Jammu and Kashmir Sardar Attique Ahmed Khan promised to provide Sui Gas from Muzaffarabad to Sri Nagar. He also announced to lay down railway tracks from Murree to Muzaffarabad and then to Sri Nagar. Sardar Attique Ahmed announced to provide electricity to Occupied Jammu and Kashmir. He also announced to construct the road from Tarbat to Bhimbar . But we do not see any project starting as yet. He said that the Prime Minister has taken Rs. 8.7 million to visit 6 European countries. This big amount can also be used for development purposes in Azad Jammu and Kashmir. He said that the leaders today are wasting money rather than utilizing them for any constructive and development purposes. He said that how can these leaders make Azad Jammu and Kashmir an independent state. He also said that Rs. 3 billion has been taken as an over draft. In some upcoming months, they know that they will be out of power, so they are wasting the foreign money upon their likes and dislikes.
