Lahore

August 17, 2019

LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Punjab President Ejaz Chaudhry called on Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar at his office Friday and discussed various matters, including party organisation, political situation and freedom struggle in the Occupied Kashmir.

They strongly condemned unprovoked firing by Indian army at the Line of Control (LoC), imposition of curfew in Occupied Kashmir and Indian brutalities being meted out to Kashmiris in the Held Valley.

The two officials thanked masses for making the Black Day rallies a success, saying that such rallies would also be held at divisional level to express solidarity with the Kashmiri people.

Speaking on the occasion, the chief minister said Pakistan was standing shoulder to shoulder with Kashmiris. He said that Pakistan was incomplete without Kashmir and added that India could not continue its illegal occupation of Kashmir for long.

India committed a dictatorial step by revoking the special status of Occupied Kashmir, he said adding that freedom of the Occupied Kashmir was not far and India would have to face humiliation at every level.

The two leaders paid tributes to the bravery of army jawans, who embraced martyrdom at the LoC due to unprovoked firing by the Indian army. The chief minister said that the Pakistan army was giving a befitting reply to the Indian aggression. The army jawans who have sacrificed their lives for the defence of the country are national heroes and the whole nation pays tributes to them, he said.

The aggressive Indian designs are a grave threat to the regional peace, he added. Ejaz Chaudhry said that India was showing a policy of stubbornness on Occupied Kashmir, adding that no power on earth could separate Kashmir from Pakistan as Kashmir belonged to Pakistan.

He said that the PTI’s governing body meeting would be held at Punjab Secretariat on August 20.

police performance: Usman Buzdar has appreciated the performance of administration and police for making the best arrangements on Eidul Azha, Independence Day and maintaining security of public rallies on Black Day.

He said that police and the administration diligently performed their duties and they deserved accolades. The line departments took effective measures and their performance was praiseworthy for providing a peaceful atmosphere to the people.

He said the lives and properties of people were protected and the people enjoyed Eid and the Independence Day in a peaceful environment.

The administration and the police worked jointly and it was hoped that both would continue to work with the same passion in future as well, he added.

black day: Usman Buzdar has thanked the citizens as well as members of the minority communities for participating in a public rally held in connection with the black day. The people from different walks of life attended the rally and I especially thank the people belonging to Hindu, Sikh and Christian communities for their participation. He said that Kashmir is an international issue and all the people have jointly raised their strong voice for the Kashmir cause. He asserted that Occupied Kashmir is a disputed territory and the Indian conspiracy of changing its status will never be allowed to be succeeded. The international community will have to pay attention to this burning issue for its timely solution, he added.
