ISLAMABAD - As dissidents take back their no-confidence motion against the Azad Jammu and Kashmir Prime Minister, the government is still all set to go ahead with the Assembly session to show its strength and try to make sure that no such motion is filed for the next six months.

The AJK constitution states: “If a resolution is not passed (no-confidence against prime minister) another such resolution shall not be moved until a period of six months has elapsed”.

Sources said that top leaders of the AJK government wanted that the no-confidence motion be taken up, and with ample chances of its failure, the constitutional bar on taking up such a motion for the next six months be invoked so that the government could sail well in the coming months.

Sensing foul, AJK PML-N President Raja Farooq Haider has called the government move to go ahead with the session as mala fide. “Neither no confidence can be tabled, no confidence can be reposed in the premier,” he contended.  “We will not attend Saturday’s session, he declared. The situation has politically devastated Barrister Sultan Mahmood Chaudhry, who was sure to replace the incumbent Ch Majeed, but the strong message from Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was a game changer. Toeing a principled line, Sharif didn’t want his party chapter in AJK to indulge in horse-trading or mudslinging, and gave a clear message to respect PPP’s mandate in AJK by discouraging the dissidents.

The Speaker of the Assembly, however, contends the fax by members who had initiated the no-confidence move to take it back, was received through fax, and signature of a member who initiated the move seemed fake. “We have made arrangements for the session on July 27 and the session will be held as per the schedule,” said the speaker while talking to The Nation.

As for today, voting on the no-confidence move against the incumbent government of AJK assembly that was initiated by the three dissident PPP lawmakers would be held today at 10am at Muzaffarabad, treasury members declared.

According to sources, these PPP members were present at Zardari House Islamabad late Friday night with the PPP senior command.

These members wanted to reconcile the issue with the PPP leadership and they showed their grievances against the alleged corrupt practices and misuse of authority of the incumbent Prime Minister Ch Abdul Majeed.

After categorical declaration by PML-N for not becoming part of the no-confidence move against the AJK Prime Minister, the no-trust motion was formally withdrawn a senior leader said, but the AJK speaker denied having received any such request from the no-confidence move initiators.

The PML-N central leadership has already directed its AJK members not to support the no-trust motion, moved by Rehabilitation Minister Abdul Majid Khan and MLA Muhammad Hussain Sargala. The PML-N has the status of main opposition party in AJK Legislative Assembly with its 11 members in the 49-seat lower house of the AJK parliament.
