Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain says government is taking steps for the development and prosperity of Azad Jammu and Kashmir.

Talking to President Azad Jammu and Kashmir Barrister Sultan Mahmood in Islamabad today (Saturday), he said steps are also being taken for promotion of tourism in the region.

The Minister said Prime Minister Imran Khan is taking special interest in the development of Azad Kashmir and the welfare of the people of the region.

Chaudhry Fawad Hussain said Mirpur-Mangla road is about to complete which will resolve the travelling issue of the area.

He said plans to link the two-lane road from Lilla to Jhelum with Azad Kashmir via Mangla are also under consideration, which will usher in a new era of communication with Kashmir.

The project will limit the journey from Kashmir to Islamabad to one hour and will also boost tourism activities in the area.

The Minister said voice of Kashmiri people will be heard all over the world by launching regular PTV broadcasts in Azad Kashmir.
