Post-ajk election: PML-N should take rejection in its stride, says Awan

Awan says the people of AJK rejected the politics of the Sharif brothers with the power of their votes.

LAHORE: 

Former federal law minister Dr Babar Awan lashed out at Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and said that the party leadership should respect the mandate of the people of Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK).

Addressing a press conference here on Thursday, Awan said “the people of AJK rejected the politics of the Sharif brothers with the power of their votes.”

“The Sharif brothers have deceived all parties four times,” he added.

Awan said the Sharif brothers should stop involving the judiciary into politics since they had been receiving ‘relief’ from courts for 30 years.

“They should be called the ‘relief brothers’,” he quipped.

Awan also predicted a landslide victory for Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) in the 2013 elections, “as it has done in the AJK elections.”
