MUZAFFARABAD: A no-confidence resolution submitted in the Azad Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly secretariat by two ruling Peoples Party (PPAJK) dissidents against AJK Prime Minister Chaudhry Abdul Majeed on July 22, has been withdrawn.
The move comes after Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif asked Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz’s (PML-N) members to stay impartial on the issue.
“Prime Minister Chaudhry Abdul Majeed has caused irreparable harm to Kashmir freedom movement, identity of the state, governance and developmental activities besides violating merit, ruining institutions, unlawfully distributing development funds and inducting favourites, instead of eligible persons, in the Public Service Commission,” read an excerpt from the resolution, submitted by Minister for Rehabilitation Abdul Majid Khan and MLA Mohammad Hussain Sargala on July 22.
This was the fourth time a no-confidence motion was moved against a sitting AJK prime minister. Three earlier motions were successfully passed and the premiers were sent home packing.
