ZIARAT: 

Claiming that they have lost their war, Balochistan Chief Minister Sanaullah Zehri has called upon the Baloch separatist leaders to return to their country and to end their political isolation by joining mainstream politics.

“The people, the government and the defence forces have won the war and those who wanted to impose their views through use of force are defeated and isolated,” Zehri said, while addressing the national flag hoisting ceremony at the Ziarat residency on Wednesday.

The chief minister spoke at length on the situation in Balochistan and said his government would not leave the people at the mercy of terrorists.

During his speech, he deviated from his written speech and spoke randomly about the prevailing situation in Balochistan. He said he had seen half of the world but enjoyed the time that he spent in Pakistan, “a wonderful country where everyone enjoys freedom, both individual and collective.”

    The only way to fix problems in baluchistan “permanently” is for pakistan to “permanently” make peace with india.
    Only then, it would become disinterested in supporting the baluch separatists.
    Common sense dictates this.Recommend
