@Mirza: For the last almost five years the PPP and its partners are in power. Instead of paying attention to the most sensitive issue of Baluchistan, the PPP leaders are busy in making money and also covering up their previous corruption. Blaming Musharaf or anyone else will not absolve those people of their responsibility who have been in power for the last almost 5 years.

Everybody knows who has the actual power when it comes to Baluchistan. The deep state has been active there for more than a decade. The disappearance of Bloch youth, the killing of their nationalist leaders including Mr. Bugti by Gen. Mush are just a few of the "achievements" of the FC and other security agencies. Politicians come and go but the deep state and its objectives continue even after the next govt.
