QUETTA: Former Balochistan chief minister and Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) member Abdul Quddus Bizenjo has announced he will contest the general elections from both Awaran and Quetta.
He stated this while receiving his nomination papers from the sessions court on Thursday.
Bizenjo said, “As the people of Quetta have given much reverence to me, I have decided to contest elections from Quetta too.
“However, district Awaran is our ancestral place and we have been contesting elections from this place since the era of my forefathers.”
He further said, “In a minimum time as the chief minister I tried my level-best to serve the people despite multiple challenges.”
He said, “The decision of the Election Commission of Pakistan to nominate Alauddin Marri as the caretaker chief minister of Balochistan is a positive step.”
He was hopeful that Marri would ensure that elections were held in a neutral manner.
