Govt to fulfill promise of holding LG elections: AJK PM

Azad Jammu and Kashmir Prime Minister Sardar Tanveer Ilyas Khan says government is going to fulfill the promise of holding local government elections despite strong opposition by major political parties.

Addressing a press conference in Islamabad on Tuesday, he asked federal government to provide requisite security so that the elections could be held in Azad Kashmir in a single day.

Sardar Tanveer Ilyas said AJK government is not in favor of taking taxes by suppressing the citizens but efforts are being made to give the citizens confidence and bring them into the tax net.

He said IT, livestock, dairy and poultry sector are being made tax-free.
