Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Khawaja Saad Rafique said on Friday that elections to be held in Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) on July 25th belonged to the party provided the election commission succeeded in stopping the federal government from intervening, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Talking to the media outside an accountability court (AC) in Lahore, Saad said that the public gatherings addressed by Prime Minister Imran Khan in AJK were ‘flop’. “This ‘selective’ accountability will not continue for long. It was high time people woke up from their slumber now,” he stressed.

He was of the view that the people of Kashmir knew fully well who deserved their votes since they were politically enlightened.

Saad regretted that an accountability court in Islamabad had been built at the site of federal lodges. “What was the point in snatching that place from the MNAs where they would pay for their stay?” he queried.

Clarifying that he had a lot of respect for the judiciary, the PML-N leader opined that it would have been better if an alternate piece of land had been found for the court.
