Ali Amin Gandapur said, “I challenge Maulana to win the elections again. If you (Maulana Fazlur Rehman) want, we can install a camera inside every polling station to contest re-election.”
The Minister for Kashmir and Gilgit Baltistan (GB) said, “You must stop criticizing national institutions, and exhibit the courage to accept my challenge.” Ali Amin Gandapur claimed that Maulana will be dealt with a “humiliating defeat which he would remember for the rest of his life”.
Gandapur added, “A person who lost his seat in the general election is now demanding the resignation for Prime Minister Imran Khan.” The Federal Minister also revealed that he had sent a legal notice to Maulana, and urged the JUI-F Chief to respond to his legal notice.
Shedding light on Maulana’s inaction during his 15-year tenure as the principal authority on the Kashmir Committee, Ali Amin Gandapur said that his stubbornness has caused unprecedented damage to the Kashmir cause. He said that the Indian media is rejoicing the Azadi March led by the JUI-F.

Ali Amin said that Prime Minister Imran Khan has courageously advocated the Kashmir cause on various international forums, however, Maulana Fazlur Rehman, with his Azadi March venture, is hell-bent on sabotaging all efforts led by the government to fight for the Kashmiri right for self-determination.
