Pak senators want change in PPP Govt’s attitude towards BalochistanJuly 27th, 2010 - 1:11 pm ICT by ANI
Islamabad, Jul 27 (ANI): Pakistani senators have expressed their concern over the deteriorating law and order in the country, particularly in Balochistan, and urged the government to take appropriate steps for curbing violence across the country.
At the onset of the session of Pakistan’s Upper House, Leader of the Opposition Senator Wasim Sajjad and Senator Raza Rabbani moved two separate resolutions to condole the deaths of former senators Qazi Abdul Latif and Habib Jalib Baloch.
Dr Abdul Maalik expressed concern over the deteriorating situation in Balochistan, and urged the government to change its attitude on the Balochistan issue.
He said the provincial government was limited to corrupt practices, adding that the Balochistan cabinet members were to be blamed for incidents of abductions for ransom, the Daily Times reports.
Raja Zafarul Haq of the PML-N pointed out that those who protested against violence in Balochistan had been gunned down one by one, and it was time to unmask internal and external elements working to destabilise the country.
Participating in the debate, Shahid Bugti termed the situation in Balochistan exactly the same as that of Bangladesh in 1971.
He pointed out that the government had been talking about “foreign hands”, but the question was why these elements had not been exposed.
Bugti said those who were hiding the identity of terrorists were actually protecting them, adding that those who killed Nawab Akbar Bugti believed that they would be able to contain the movement there, but instead the movement had gone from strength to strength.
Kalsoom Parveen said various packages had been announced to resolve Balochistan’s problems, but none of them had been implemented fully, and demanded the dispatch of medicines for those affected by the recent rains in Balochistan. (ANI)
