QUETTA: Opposition parties and other officials urged the federal and provincial governments to arrest people involved in the assassination of Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti.

They addressed a condolence reference on the 13th death anniversary of former governor and chief minister of Balochistan.

Officials of parties including Jamhoori Watan Party (JWP) President Shahzain Bugti, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Nazaryati (JUI-N) Ameer Maulana Abdul Qadir Loni, Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Balochistan chapter Secretary General Iqbal Shah, and Balochistan High Court Bar President Syed Abdul Bashir were present on the occasion.

Musharraf acquitted of Bugti murder charge

Admiring the struggle of Akbar Bugti within the constitutional framework, they blamed retired general Pervez Musharraf for launching operations against the leader.

They accused Musharraf’s government of hatching a conspiracy, through the murder of Bugti, to disturb the peace in Balochistan.

However, according to them, leaders of three other provinces failed in arresting his killers.

Stressing upon other political parties to launch a joint movement for the rights of Balochistan, they claimed that justice cannot prevail in the country without the arrest of the assassins.

They also backed Kashmiris against the Indian government’s atrocities and complete lockdown in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK).

Claiming the support of Pakistanis, they also affirmed the unity of the nation over the IOK issue and said the nation will continue expressing solidarity with the Kashmiris.
