Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry on Saturday said that PPP and PML-N had no political culture as they were being run by two royal families, adding that one has a “queen”’ and the other a “king” at the helm of affairs.

The PML-N and the PPP leaders are leading the campaigns of their respective parties for the 11th AJK Legislative Assembly elections — that will be held on July 25.

Chaudhry, addressing party workers at Abbottabad, took a dig at the two parties, saying that they had campaigned for the GB elections but were frustrated as they could not find candidates to field. 

"They are facing the same situation in the AJK as [both parties] cannot find candidates to field in several constituencies," the federal minister continued.

He said leaders of the PPP and the PML-N have no respect for their party workers and treat their parties' former prime ministers like 'slaves'.

"Pakistanis and Kashmiris are a nation and no one can separate them," he said.

Fawad said PTI — under Prime Minister Imran Khan's leadership — would break “political idols” in the AJK elections as it had already done in other parts of Pakistan.

He said both Bilawal and Maryam knew nothing about running the national economy, as they had practically done nothing to earn even a single rupee.

The PTI, he said, came into being as a reaction to the "loot and plunder" of the former ruling parties.

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly Speaker Mushtaq Ahmed Ghani, PTI Member of the National Assembly Ali Khan Jadoon, KP Minister for Revenue Qalandar Lodhi, and PTI candidate for LA-45 Abdul Majid Khan also addressed the gathering.
