PM Shehbaz approves Rs. 23 billion for AJK to quell the suffering

The people of Azad Jammu and Kashmir are facing several challenges, and on Monday, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif issued an order to release Rs23 billion immediately to help them.

According to a PM Office press release, the prime minister made the decision to provide funds following a thorough analysis of the territory’s circumstances in a special meeting he chaired.

Protests have been taking place in a number of AJK regions over the past few days, with protestors calling for lower taxes and electricity costs in addition to wheat flour subsidies.

High-ranking officials, members of the AJK cabinet, and the prime minister of Azad Jammu and Kashmir were in attendance.

Appreciating Prime Minister Shehbaz’s prompt decision to provide funds, the Kashmiri leadership and other attendees expressed gratitude.


Following the collapse of talks between the Awami Action Committee and the AJK government on Sunday, the shutdown strike and protests in Azad Kashmir over rising flour and energy costs started their fourth day on Monday.

The ongoing shutdown and wheeljam strike would continue until their demands are fulfilled, according to the Awami Action Committee.

AAC-led march on state capital Muzaffarabad today has brought the valley to a near stop. The caravans are coming from many AJK cities, and they are headed towards Rawalakot. The march is being caused by the impasse in the negotiations.

After fighting broke out between the police and demonstrators in Mirpur on Saturday, which left one policeman dead and numerous others injured, the AJK government dispatched Rangers.
