Pashtoonkhwa Milli Awami Party (PkMAP) chief Mehmood Khan Achakzai said on Thursday there is a need to restructure the 1973 Constitution in order to protect the country’s “oppressed nations” from decades-long injustices.
During his visit to Quetta Press Club, the PkMAP chief said that Pakistan is a country where several nations with distinct cultures live, and it is time to end the decades’ long injustices done to the some nations living here. If proper rights are not given, he added, it would result in terrorism and hatred among people.
“Everyone wants to live in a Pakistan where their rights are protected. The Baloch, Pakhtun and other suppressed nations should be given rights of ownership on their land and resources,” he said.
