Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar has said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government was fulfilling its responsibility of representing the oppressed Kashmiri people and their struggle movement.
In a statement, he said that freedom-struggle in occupied Kashmir has taken a historic turn and now the world community cannot ignore the issue. Prime Minister Imran Khan has clean-bowled Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the issue of Kashmir as the Kashmir narrative of the Modi government had been rejected.
He said continuous curfew in occupied Kashmir, coupled with a series of restrictions, has become a matter of concern for the international community and human rights organisations.
Putting the gardens on fire in Srinagar was a considered attempt to economically devastate Kashmiris, he added. In fact, brute fanaticism of the Modi government had been exposed in the whole world, he said.
The chief minister also condemned threatening of human rights bodies and their workers by the Indian government and added that India was openly violating its commitment of protecting human rights in occupied Kashmir.
The police have arrested two criminals involved in the gang-rape of a girl-student in Bhakkar. The chief minister had directed to arrest the absconding criminal as well adding that provision of justice to the student’s family will be ensured. Meanwhile, the DPO Bhakkar visited the residence of the student to meet with the affected student and her father. He assured of providing justice to the victim.
In the meanwhile Chief Minister Usman Buzdar has taken notice of murder of an eight-year-old girl in Ahmadpur East and sought a report from the RPO Bahawalpur. He directed to provide justice to the affected family and added that strict action be initiated against the criminals. Meanwhile, the police have arrested two criminals and the case has been registered against six criminals. Raids were being conducted to arrest the others.
