Islamabad, Dec.20 (ANI): Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairperson Benazir Bhutto has said that the people of Balochistan have been forced to pick up arms to prevent the authorities from depriving them of their resources.
Addressing a campaign rally in Dera Allahyar, Bhutto vowed to end their deprivations and give them due compensation if she came to power.
Bhutto also said she would find all missing persons and release political prisoners from the region.
The PPP chairperson, however, expressed satisfaction over the way President Musharraf has so far lived up to his promises on the ‘roadmap to democracy’ having lifted emergency rule and removing his uniform.
She said that the promise of transparent elections is the only point that remains to be fulfilled.
Former Chief Minister of Balochistan and candidate of NA-266 Taj Jamali, Mir Sadiq Imrani, Qaim Ali Shah also addressed the rally. (ANI)
