“We welcome Karim Khan to APML”: Islamuddin

PT Report

Gilgit, June 16: All Pakistan Muslim League has been functional in Gilgit – Baltistan for the past many months. We welcome new members to the party, including Karim Khan.

These views were expressed by Islamuddin, an activist of APML, famously known as Musharraf League, while talking to Pamir Times the other day. He was responding to a news report published on Pamir Times a couple of days ago.

Islamuddin, a former independent candidate for GBLA from Gilgit city, said that their party is in initial stages and no body has been designated at a party position.

It is pertinent to note that Musharraf’s supporters in Gilgit – Baltistan have welcomed the party, terming it better than all other existing parties. Several leaders and workers of the PML (Q) have reportedly changed party ranks, lining behind the former dictator who is accused by many of destroying key national institutions. Many neutral professionals and educated youth have also expressed willingness to support Musharraf.

Musharraf is popular among the masses in Gilgit – Baltistan because many mega projects were started during his regime, including the region’s only university. The Northern Areas Council was also upgraded to Northern Areas Legislative Assembly (NALA) by his government.

The nationalists and other die-hard federalist party workers are, however, skeptical of the party. They think Musharraf League is another PTI in the making. “People respect him and appreciate his personality but they would not vote for him”, a seasoned PPP worker said.
