ISLAMABAD: Women are an important segment of society, PTI believes in providing equal rights to women, said the former PM AJK, President PTI AJK, and Member Azad Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly, Barrister Sultan Mehmood Chaudhry here on Sunday. He expressed this while addressing the oath taking ceremony of women governing body in Islamabad.

He said that PTI will increase the women’s seats in AJK assembly after coming in power. But, an effort will also be made during the current government in this regard by tabling a bill for increasing the seats of women in AJK legislative Assembly, so that women can come forward to solve the issues being faced by this segment of society. The role of women is inevitable for the progress and development, he added.

He said that the violations of ceasefire agreement from Indian side are continuously increasing. Azad Kashmir is the base camp of Kashmir Movement, therefore there should be such a government in Azad Kashmir which can actively raise the Kashmir issue, he further said.
