LAHORE, Aug 31: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz chief and former prime minister Nawaz Sharif has said the government should have taken the Kashmiri leadership into confidence before giving autonomous status to Gilgit and Baltistan, and announced a committee to establish his party’s Kashmir chapter.

He was talking to Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chairman Yasin Malik and a joint delegation of AJK Assembly here at his residence on Monday.

The delegation comprised People’s Muslim League president Barrister Sultan Mahmood, Muslim Conference leader Raja Farooq Haider, and speaker Shah Ghulam Haider.
