People of Gwadar want their own province just like Province in Seraiki belt & Hazara.

We have our own culture with Mekran roots.We can earn more foreign exchange though our port that can feed the whole of Pakistan.

We dont want to take orders from those sitting hunderds of miles away in Quetta

Long Live Gwadar province.
