“Musharraf caused “great damage” to the Kashmir cause. If PTI comes to power in the upcoming general elections we will put forward “ground-breaking” proposals for resolving the Kashmir dispute in accordance with the UN resolutions,” said PTI chief.

Khan blamed former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for “undermining the Kashmiri struggle for self-determination when he became the first Pakistani PM to visit India officially (for Modi’s swearing-in ceremony) and not meet the Hurriyat Conference leadership in New Delhi.”

“He (Nawaz) did this because he was busy meeting his Indian business counterparts to talk business, not reaffirm Pakistan’s position on Kashmir. He put his business interests before the country’s interests and the Kashmiris struggle for self-determination,” Khan added.

He further said that UN resolutions continue to be of central relevance as they reaffirm the legitimacy of the Kashmiris right to self-determination.
