MIRPUR - Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) was formally launched on Sunday in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir, thus becoming a new entity in the political arena of the area. The announcement regarding the formation of the PML-N, AJK chapter, was made by the partys Quaid and former prime minister Mian Nawaz Sharif at a public meeting in Muzaffarabad. More than 20,000 people attended the rally addressed by him. Former AJK prime minister Raja Farooq Haider Khan, ex speaker AJK assembly Shah Ghulam Qadir, PML-N leader Raja Zafarul Haq and other senior leaders and activists were present on the occasion. Elaborating the objective of forming his party in AJK, Nawaz said since he had always considered Muslim Conference as his Muslim League, he was never in favour of launching the PML-N in AJK in the past. But the circumstances compelled him to launch his partys chapter in AJK after those (leaders of Muslim Conference) whom he considered his allies in AJK, supported former dictator General Pervez Musharraf. Nawaz said he was keen to be with the aggrieved people when deadly earthquake struck Pakistan Occupied Kashmir on October 8, 2005, but he was not allowed to do so by dictator Musharraf. He said the PML-N would get the mandate from the democracy-loving people of Pakistan and AJK instead of licking the shoes of any dictator in the next general elections in the country. Nawaz categorically dispelled the impression that the PML-N was friendly opposition. PML (N) is Pakistan-friendly and not the government-friendly opposition party, Nawaz said adding that the party would continue working and striving hard for the speedy progress, prosperity, security and sovereignty of Pakistan. Meanwhile both Raja Farooq Haider and Shah Ghulam Qadir, formerly frontline leaders of Muslim Conference, elaborated the causes of parting their ways from the MC along with nine other lawmakers in the AJK Legislative Assembly. They said the decision was taken keeping in view the traditional betrayal of commitment and somersault by the incumbent Prime Minister Sardar Attique Ahmed Khan. Farooq Haider accused Attique of splitting MC for vested interests. Agencies add: Nawaz Sharif criticised MQM for its alleged involvement in May 12 massacre in Karachi and violence in the city after assassination of Dr Imran Farooq. Those who are talking about revolution should answer why massacre was carried out in Karachi when Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry arrived in Karachi on May 12, asked the PML-N chief. The MQM was an ally in Pervez Musharraf regime and its leader Mustafa Kamal was mayor of Karachi in 2007 when the May 12 riots took place in the city. Nawaz said those demanding revolution should define this word. Is it the revolution that MQM leader Imran Farooq is murdered in London and dozens of people are killed in Karachi in its reaction? He said PML-N is a revolutionary party. He himself is an innovative person, adding that the PML-N is a sign of revolution. The PML-N Chief lamented that the country witnessed massive mismangement in the flood aid. He said corruption is rampant and asked the governmet to mend its ways.
