AJK shuts down to mark ‘black day’

Muzzafarabad, Feb.16(ANI): The Azad Jammu & Kashmir (AJK) Government has observed a black day today against the killing of a ruling party activist in an electioneering rally.

Addressing a rally in Kotli, Azad Jammu & Kashmir Prime Minister Chaudhry Abdul Majeed blamed the PML-N leaders for the deadly clash.

Chaudhry said that federal ministers who delivered provocative speeches are behind the killing of the PPP activist, reports the Dawn.

Tensions have been simmering between the Centre and the AJK Government since a Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) worker was shot dead and four more were wounded in the clash with Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) activists.

In Muzaffarabad however, the ruling party failed to pull in large crowds on the streets.

Elections for the AJK Legislative Assembly are scheduled in June.(ANI)
