In his speech in Azad Kashmir, the federal minister declared Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto a traitor and Nawaz Sharif a dacoit.

During the election campaign, Ali Amin Gandapur announced to give a big development package once again after receiving votes.

The Federal Minister recalled his promise which he did in Gilgit-Baltistan to give a package of Rs10 million on the lead of one vote and rumoured that he would provide much more than what he was asking for.

Earlier, Azad Jammu and Kashmir Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) retired Justice Abdul Rashid Sulehria has ordered the registration of a case against Federal Minister for Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit-Baltistan Ali Amin Gandapur for donating cash during the party's campaign for the July 25 Legislative Assembly elections.

CEC rejected a report submitted by Returning Officer Mirpur Dadyal Raja Shamriz and directed the authorities to proceed with action against the PTI minister.

A video of the minister donating cash during the campaign for the July 25 election went viral last week prompting the CEC to take notice of the matter.

PTI member Chaudhry Rasib admitted to receiving money from Gandapur during the campaign, after which the RO for Mirpur seized the cash.

Shamriz had presided over a hearing in the matter of the distribution of money by Gandapur.

During the hearing, Rasib had admitted that he had received Rs390,000 from the minister but said that PTI candidate Azhar Sadiq, who is contesting the elections had nothing to do with the incident.

 

The RO confiscated the money, declared the Assembly candidate innocent and sent a detailed report on the matter to the AJK CEC.

Twitter tests edge-to-edge photos in timeline

The upcoming feature will expand visual media embedded in tweets to fill the whole width of a mobile phone's screen. The new layout is being tested on iOS but not on Android.

“The change is designed to make it easier for visual content to shine,” said twitter.

In the current test, tweets fill the full frame from left to right instead of being offset by a pretty large margin on the left.

The changes result in much larger images and videos that look better in the feed and a cleaner, more modern design that doesn’t unnecessarily squish tweets to the right of users’ profile pictures.

The test follows two previous image-focused changes— 4K image support and full-size images.

The 4K image support came in April and increased the resolution of images from 2048 x 2048 pixels to 3840 pixels on the long end.

While, full-size image support came in May and brought an end to cropped photos on timelines in iOS and Android.

The company, with the announcement that it is testing edge-to-edge photo support is increasing its chances of becoming an Instagram competitor.

The date for the rollout is not ascertain yet. However, users are already complaining about the change, despite the fact that it is still in its early stages.

This is because, there's no word, on when full-width tweets will arrive on some of the best Android phones.
