MANCHESTER: Chief Patron of Tehreek-e- Kashmir UK, Syed Munwar Hussain Mehshadi has accused that a delegation of AJK government currently visiting UK and Europe achieved nothing but wasted two million hard earned money of the tax payers. Addressing a meeting of Tehreek-e-Kashmir North Zone he said recent visit of AJK Prime minister Sardar Attique Ahmed to Belgium, UK and other European countries with a truck load of state ministers, MLAs and other government functionaries is nothing more than a pleasure trips at the cost of public exchequer.
He said AJK government headed by Sardar Attique Ahmed Khan has no role in Kashmir freedom movement and it should desist from wasting public money on luxuries of costly foreign tours. The money should be spent on rehabilitation of the earthquake victims and on welfare of those widows, orphans and the families affected during the freedom struggle in occupied Kashmir.
He urged the new elected government in Pakistan to take cognizance of the activities of AJK government by holding them accountable for wasting public funds on meaningless foreign tours. He said federal government which is responsible to meet budgetary needs of AJK should check that where money provided by Pakistan for development is being spent.
