Ready to conduct referendum on POK
Imran Khan Niazi , the prime minister of Pakistan has said that he is willing to hold a referendum in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK) , which has been recognized a controversial area between india and Pakista. He said “let the people decide whether they want to remain with Pakistan or to be independent.”
Khan gave this statement in an interview to German state-owned broadcaster Deutsche Welle. Ready to invite international observers from all over the world so that they can visit PoK'
Claiming that PoK holds free and fair elections and elects its own government Niazi said he is ready to invite international observers from all over the world so that they can visit there. However, truth be told, as per the 1974 constitution of PoKAzad, anyone who wants to contests in the local polls has to support Kashmir’s union with Pakistan and sign a “pledge of loyalty to Pakistan”. People who demand independence routinely face persecution.
In 2016 massive protests broke out all over PoK against rigged elections with thousands of people taking to the streets demanding “azadi” from Pakistan and its brutal military establishment.'Let the people decide whether they want to remain with Pakistan or to be independent.'
