KARACHI: Balochistan Chief Minister Sanaullah Zehri on Monday once again blamed ‘external forces’ for fomenting unrest in the province to achieve their ‘ulterior motives’, saying the suicide blast on a hospital in Quetta last week was also the handiwork of such elements.

“Terrorists cannot divide us with such cowardly acts. The nation stood united behind law-enforcement agencies who have been sacrificing their lives to protect citizens,” Zehri said while talking to the media after visiting victims of the Quetta blast at Aga Khan University Hospital.

Balochistan isn’t Kashmir: Zehri rejects Narendra Modi’s toxic analogy

He said the successful completion of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor was at the heart of his government and vowed to provide “foolproof security” to those working on the project.

The CM said the morale of the security forces is high and they are alert to countering every act of terrorism in any part of the province.

    Why don’t we settle India & Pakistan’s repeated allegations of “EXTERNAL HAND” in their internal affairs by reuniting both the countries again? Then it would be left only to “Internal Hand, left or right” to clean the mess.Recommend

    And just WHERE is that evidence of RAW involvement in the recent Quetta bombing that Zehri claimed to have even before an investigation started???
