Senator Sherry Rehman has called for the resignation of Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider following his statement on the annexation of AJK in the aftermath of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s ouster.
“It was shocking to hear such a statement coming from the PM of AJK. His loyalty should be to Pakistan and the people of AJK. Questioning AJK’s allegiance to Pakistan over partisan loyalty to the PML-N is unacceptable,” the PPPP vice-president said.
In a tweet, Rehman shared, “The AJK PM has lost his standing to stay in office. He should resign after questioning AJK’s allegiance to
#Pakistan. No delay.”
AJK’s Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider made his comments yesterday while addressing a joint press conference with Gilgit-Baltistan’s chief minister.
“The PM of AJK has lost his standing to stay in office for questioning AJK’s allegiance to Pakistan. His comment has made a mockery of his office and the struggle of the Kashmiri people. He must resign immediately,” Rehman added.
