Enemy sowed seeds of ethnic hate: Mengal

QUETTA: Balochistan National Party-Mengal (BNP-M) Chief Akhter Mengal said that ethnic differences in the province are responsible for the unrest, which has plunged Balochistan into more bloodshed.

Addressing a public gathering at Alamdar Road, the BNP-M chief said, “Today every single home in Balochistan has a widow, dozens of children are helpless in our province, all nationalities living in Balochistan have lost their loved ones due to ethnic hate fueled by our common enemies.”

Mengal urges APC to take up province’s issues

Meanwhile, independent candidate Tahir Hazara has announced his withdrawal from NA-264 and NA-265 in favour of BNP-M candidates Nawabzada Haji Lashkari Raisani and Abdul Wali Kakar. Senator Dr Jahanzaib Jamaldini, former MNA Nasir Ali Hazara, Sajid Tareen Advocate and people from Hazara tribe gathered in the election alliance between BNP and Tahir Hazara.

“I have been feeling ashamed while facing the people of Hazara tribe because the beleaguered community has been facing genocide for the past two decades,” Mengal said adding “Hazara nation is tired of lifting bodies of their loved ones.”

He said that Pashtoon, Hazara, and other nations were living as one community during the era of (National Awami Party) NAP. “There were no reports that any nation hurled a stone on the other,” he added.

“Today we have been divided as separate nations, our enemies cultivated seeds of ethnic hate in Balochistan,” Mengal said adding “the forces want to fuel more unrest in Balochistan so they could easily exploit the resources of people of Balochistan.”

Mengal furious at not being taken on board while choosing caretaker CM

With regards to the mega corruption in Balochistan by previous regimes, the BNP chief said, “Today people do not have a bicycle while some have become billionaires and travel on private helicopters after looting the rights and due share of the people of Balochistan.”

“After Nawab Bugti’s assassination we segregated ourselves from government, despite facing immense challenges, BNP is the only party which is still standing on its ideology and never compromised on the rights of people of Balochistan,” Mengal said.

BNP leader Nawabzada Haji Lashkari Raisani lauded Tahir Hazara’s withdrawal from National Assembly’s constituencies and said, “BNP-Mengal has pledged people of Balochistan that their rights would be protected in parliament at all costs.”

“Though today our province is stricken with a crisis which can’t be addressed by a single nation, we all have to play our due role to pull the province from crisis,” he added.
