MUZAFFARABAD (92 News) – Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan has arrived in Muzaffarabad to address the special session of Azad Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly to express solidarity with the oppressed people of Indian Occupied Kashmir (IoK). Upon his arrival at the helipad, AJK President Sardar Masood Khan, Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider Khan, Speaker Legislative Assembly Shah Ghulam Qadir and other high-ranking officials accorded a warm welcome to him. Later, Prime Minister Imran Khan was given a guard of honor by a smartly turned-out contingent of AJK Police at his arrival at AJK Legislative Assembly. National anthem of Pakistan was also played on this occasion. On the occasion of Kashmir Solidarity Day, President Dr Arif Alvi and Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan have reaffirmed Pakistan’s unflinching support for Kashmiri brothers and sisters who have been subjected to an inhuman lockdown and communications blockade for six months. In his message,  President Arif Alvi said through its illegal and unilateral actions of August 5 last year, India directly contravened the relevant United Nations Security Council Resolutions. In his message, the prime minister said that India has turned eight million Kashmiris into prisoners in their own land through the deployment of over 900,000 occupation troops. The nation is observing Kashmir Solidarity Day to express wholehearted support of Pakistani nation to the just struggle of Kashmiri people for their inalienable right to self-determination under United Nations resolutions on Wednesday. The day will highlight the plight of oppressed Kashmiri people and remind the world community of its obligations towards the resolution of the outstanding dispute. This time the day is being observed after India revoked the special status of Indian Occupied Kashmir in August last year in breach of all international laws, and since then the entire population of the held territory has been under lockdown. One minute silence was observed at 10.00am to pay homage to the martyrs of the liberation struggle of occupied Kashmir. Human chains were formed at Kohala, Mangla, Barar Kot, Holar and Azad Pattan points linking Pakistan and Azad Kashmir.
