Raisani said the financial reserves of Balochistan were in surplus during Aslam Raisani’s government in the province. He added the previous regime looted the public money and kept the province deprived of development.

Referring to the July 25 general election, he said free and fair elections were the only way out of the financial crisis but the mandate of political parties was ‘stolen’.
