QUETTA: Balochistan Governor Nawab Zulfiqar Ali Magsi said foreign interference had led to the deteriorating law and order situation in the province.  Talking to the media on Thursday, Magsi rejected any justification for dissolving the provincial assembly. He said foreign influence was provoking people to shun stability in the province, adding that a heavy-handed crackdown was needed against such elements to ensure peace.  “We should not let these conspiracies succeed, let’s be united,” said Magsi, adding that he was never satisfied with the law and order situation of the province.  Talking about the Supreme Court’s interim order on Balochistan government’s constitutional authority, Magsi said the law and order issue in the province is not a constitutional issue, adding that the dissolving of the provincial assembly was not justified.
