Federal Minister for Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit-Baltistan Ali Amin Gandapur

MUZAFFARABAD, 17 July: Azad Jammu and Kashmir(AJK) Election Commission ordered Federal Minister for Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit-Baltistan Ali Amin Gandapur to leave the region following an attack on his convoy a day ago.

The AJK election commission, in a letter written to the region’s chief Secretary, said that it had banned the federal minister from attending rallies and giving speeches.

“The federal minister’s speeches are creating law and order problems in Azad Jammu and Kashmir,” the letter said.

The election commission said that action was being taken against PTI candidates for violating the poll’s code of conduct.

Moreover, it directed the chief secretary to immediately implement the instructions and submit a report in this regard at the earliest.

Gandapur’s convoy comes under attack in Jhelum

The federal minister’s convoy came under attack when he, along with Minister for Communication and Postal Services Murad Saeed and other PTI leaders, was headed to a public gathering in connection with the upcoming elections in AJK.

When his caravan was passing through a place in Jhelum Valley, some infuriated people pelted stones at it.

The people also threw eggs at the convoy and blocked the Srinagar Highway. The federal minister’s guards resorted to aerial firing to break up the crowd.

Later, the PTI ascribed blame to the PML-N leadership on Twitter. “Fearing the defeat of Raja Farooq Haider, it is clear from this video of the attack on the convoy of Murad Saeed that the PML-N has lost its footing. Now Kashmiris will be holding the incompetent PML-N rulers accountable for five years.
