QUETTA: Balochistan National Party (BNP) chief Sardar Akhtar Mengal has said that the government has failed to restore peace and provide security to the people in Balochistan.
Speaking to protesters during a sit-in at western bypass near Hazar Ganji Market, Mengal said the recent bomb attack in quetta was not the first incident of terrorism in the province. Balochistan had seen several attacks in the past and suffered the loss of a number of lives, he added.
Balochistan Assembly Members Akhtar Hussain Lango, Ahmed Nawaz Baloch and other BNP leaders were also present at the occasion.
The BNP chief remarked that the Baloch, Hazaras and Pashtuns who were declared the owners of Balochistan for past 70 years did not enjoy equal rights as other citizens.
Mengal said that if the government was unaware of the perpetrators of the Quetta attack then they had no right to rule the country.
The BNP chief remarked that the people of Balochistan were helpless and had no choice except staging a sit-in for getting justice for their loved ones.
He said the BNP would continue raising voice for the recovery of missing persons at every platform and its lawmakers would seek justice for the Hazara community in the assemblies.
