QUETTA: Winner of NA-272 Lasbela-cum-Gwadar seat Aslam Bhootani has said that he has not yet opposed any development project, but Gwadar should be included in the development projects under China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.
“People of Gwadar and Lasbela have shown confidence in me; therefore, it is my responsibility to protect their rights,” Bhootani said after he arrived in Hub on Monday.
He received a warm welcome by the people of Hub upon his arrival after winning the NA-272 seat.
“I have never lured people into violence because I believe in resolving issues through discussion. Our predecessors failed in delivering to the people of Lasbela and Gwadar, which is why they were rejected in elections,” Bhootani said.
He said the coastal strip of Balochistan had been playing a vital role in boosting Pakistan’s economy and vowed to work together for the development of Lasbela, Gwadar and Pakistan.
