ISLAMABAD: Asif Kirmani, Advisor to the Prime Minister, on Sunday asked Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) Prime Minister Chaudhry Abdul Majeed to step down for his failure to protect life and property of the people.

The AJK government hasn completely failed to deliver while corruption us rampant in all state departments, therefore, Chaudhry Chaudhry Abdul Majeed should quit his office immediately, he said while addressing a press conference here.

Referring to a clash between the workers of PML-N and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), he said it was a condemnable incident which had taken a precious life.

The AJK Prime Minister, who he alleged, was in Nakyal and giving directions to his party activists during their clash with the PML-N workers.

The incident, he said, showed ulterior motives of Chaudhry Abdul Majeed.

He distorted the facts and conveyed wrong information to the PPP leadership.

PPP leaders Asif Ali Zardari and Bilawal Bhutto should better depute some sane person to get correct information about the incident, he said.

Dr Kirmani said the participants of PPP youth rally while passing through Nikyal Bazzar first chanted ‘indecent and vulgar’ slogans against the PML-N leadership and then started attacking shops and business outlets of PML-N workers.

The PML-N workers then reacted in self-defence and a clash broke out resulting into loss of a precious life, which was highly regrettable and condemnable, he added.
