    Uzair Baloch is the real face of PPP it is proven fact that PPP backed anti-Pakistan elements involved in espionage. All such PPP members should be arrested, until that their names should be put on Exit Control List (ECL) to stop them from leaving the country as in the case of Ayyan Ali who managed to escape and now Dr Asim is preparing to left.
