New Delhi, Nov 25 (ANI): Former Prime Minister of Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (PoK) Sardar Sikandar Hayat has accused the Muslim Conference government led by Sardar Atique Khan of being corrupt and ineffective, and has also demanded the latter’s resignation.
In an interview to ANI, Khan said that unless there is a change in the prime-ministership, the government would continue to drift apart, and warned of a possible split in the Muslim Conference, which he said would be harmful for the State.
Stating that he is seeking Khan’s resignation since the latter has overlooked the misdeeds of the government, Hayat said that he was not supportive of his ideas of ‘military democracy’ in Pakistan.
He also accused the PoK Government for not doing anything for the rehabilitation of the 2005 earthquake victims there.
Meanwhile, another former Prime Minister of PoK Barrister Sultan Memmood Chaudhary has also criticised Khan’s rule and has termed it as a ’sort of a crap government’.
“Atique’s government is very… sort of a crap government,” he told ANI, adding that he could force him out of power in the Assembly.
Commenting on the stability of the government there, Chaudhary said that it would not be able to complete its term.
“We are very serious that charges of corruption and nepotism against him (Khan) … Well, it’s my opinion, its my desire as well that he should not complete (the full term),” he added.
He also accused the incumbent government of doing nothing for the earthquake victims.
“I am saying that nothing has been done, especially two years since the earthquake. People are quite worried and the funds we were expecting from abroad, we have not got. The government has not played the due role they were supposed to play for the reconstruction of the areas, and of course the settlement of the people,” he added. (ANI)
