Bilawal Bhutto visits quake-hit areas of AJK

Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Wednesday visited earthquake-affected areas of Azad and Jammu Kashmir.

As per details, the PPP leader visited the relief camps set up for earthquake affected people in Jatlan.

The PPP chairman also met with social worker Faisal Edhi at relief camp.

Bilawal Bhutto also visited District Hospital Mirpur where he inquired about the health of those wounded in the earthquake.

It must be noted that At least 40 people have died with more than 500 injured so far as a result of a 5.8-magnitude earthquake that hit Azad Kashmir (AJK) last week.

As per details, the death toll of the earthquake that hit Mirpur, AJK, Zafarwal, Jhelum and other areas has soared to 40. At least 6,000 houses were destroyed completely, while 7100 cattle farms have been damaged in the quake.

The strong earthquake of 5.8-magnitude brought disasters to different parts of Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK).

The quake hit some urban and rural parts of the Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) including Muzaffarabad, Kotli and many other scattered places.

Bilawal Bhutto said that the prime minister’s speech was good but it should have been more focused on the attack Indian has launced on the people of Occupied Kashmir.

Speaking to the media during his visit to earthquake hit areas of Azad Kashmir, he asked the prime minister to explain what practical measures he has taken for Kashmiris other than delivering the speech, a reference to Imran Khan’s address to the United Nations.

Bilawal Bhutto said the prime minister should have demanded  democratic rights and right to self-determination for people of Occupied Kashmir.

Calling for the unity among Pakistanis on the issue of Kahsmir, he said “we all should raise the issue at every forum”.

“Every prime minister makes speeches at the United Nations on Kashmir. What appropriate action have you taken against Indian measures,” said he.

Highlighting the ordeal of the people in Occupied Kashmir, the PPP chairman said Kashmiris’ right to self-determination should be discussed more vigorously.

Criticizing the prime minister, he said instead of standing for Kashmiris Imran Khan was busy vanquishing the opposition.

He said the PPP workers were also taking part in the relief activities in Kashmir.
