He added that Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif formed the manifesto committee for Azad Kashmir, adding that implementation shall be made on every word mentioned in the manifesto.
Information minister stated that PM Nawaz’s name was written on every brick laid for the prosperity and development of Pakistan.

He criticised Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan by enquiring whether Khan was not able to curtail the rats-related issue faced by Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) or not.
He also asked PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto to tell the people what did their government do for the people of Azad Kashmir.
