Any one who see this face would lose faith in our abilities to run the country and choose a correct man for correct job.

Such drama, the Idio-establishment partnership has brought nothing but HAVOC to a province that already found it hard to keep pace with the rest of the county. Self mockery on part of these so called leaders has damaged the image of the people of Balochistan who have all the potential to achieve great feats.
