QUETTA: 

The Balochistan National Party-Mengal (BNP-M) on Friday announced their party manifesto in Quetta for the upcoming general elections, Radio Pakistan reported.

The manifesto promised that the party, if elected to power, would work on improving the law and order situation and eliminate the social evils plaguing Balochistan. The manifesto claimed that BNP-M would put a stop to instances of targeted killings in the province.

The manifesto added that the political party would regularise the gas supply to Balochistan and help create an environment that fosters peace and tolerance in the region.

BNP-M chief Sardar Akhtar Mengal had earlier boycotted the 2008 elections and had been living in self-exile in Dubai. He recently returned to Pakistan to lead his own faction of the BNP in the upcoming elections.

He also wrote an open letter to the chief justice requesting him to play a role in conflict resolution between the Pakistani establishment and the Baloch nationalists seeking their inalienable national rights.

    Did you hear that top Pakistani prosecutor got killed in front of his house on his way to Court to prosecute brave Mr Musharaff of Pakistan? The rest of the world is buzzing about it — may be the same force that killed the Indian prisoner originally convicted by a military court is flexing its muscle.
    Don’t let the authority or the militants ( they are synonymous in Pakistan — so it seems) muzzle you

    @Navdeep:

    Perhaps, just like no one understands the pain and trauma of the people of Kashmir, the Sikhs of Punjab and Haryana, the peoples of the North East. Free KASHMIR, Free KHALISTAN, Free ASSAM, MEGHALAYA, ARUNACHAL, TRIPURA, BODO
