In the wake of release of a video of Federal Minister for Kashmir Affairs Ali Ameen Khan Gandapur distributing money among people of Azad Jammu and Kashmir during electioneering, AJK Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Justice (r) Rashid Sulehria has written a letter to Prime Minister Imran Khan, asking him to instruct his ministers as well as provincial ministers not to violate the election code of conduct, 2021, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Friday.

The CEC has asked PM Imran to ensure holding of free and fair elections in the AJK on July 25.

Similarly, Sulehria has urged PM Imran to make sure state resources are not spent either for or against a certain political party.
