AJK Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider

ISLAMABAD(MUZAFFARABAD), 26 July: The incumbent Prime Minister(PM) of Azad & Jammu Kashmir Raja Farooq Haider has Sunday castigated Kashmiris people for electing Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf (PTI) into power in their general elections.

Having been defeated by PTI in the polls today, AJK PM Haider said the Kashmiri people are marred with the mentality of slavers for the past 250 years.

The results today reflect the slave mentality the people have here, he said holding press talk following poll results were announced.

His remarks were taken as distasteful by the political rivals, as Pakistan PM’s aide on political communication Shahbaz Gill said he was surprised at the words coming out of Haider’s mouth.

He said it was the Kashmiris people who regarded him to begin with to a point of making him the PM there. I am amazed at his statement, SAPM Gill said.
