QUETTA: Balochistan National Party-Mengal (BNP-M) chief Akhtar Mengal has said that the people from outside have been looting Balochistan’s resources for decades while the local people have been walking barefooted.
“People of Gwadar have been complaining about lack of jobs at the Gwadar Port and the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor projects, but first I want to ask the people of Kanraj that how many Baloch have been given jobs in private companies in your area,” said Mengal while addressing a public gathering in the Kanraj area of Lasbela on Thursday.
The BNP-M chief said, “Unfortunately people from outside Balochistan have been looting resources of our province, but BNP made a pledge with the people to make them the owner of resources of the province.
On the election alliance with Pakistan Peoples Party, Mengal said, “Following our alliance, PPP candidate will contest elections on PB seats while I am contesting for the National Assembly seat.”
He said that PPP candidate Wadera Hassan Jamot was missing and he had been looking for him from Wadh to Othal.
“Today, I thought he might be in Kanraj so I came here but he is still missing. I have heard he is looking to take shelter by hiding among the people. People living here must be careful of these leaders,” Mengal said.
“Politics isn’t an easy task; therefore, on election day people of Kanraj should vote for true leadership of Balochistan,” he urged.
