ISLAMABAD, Pakistan – Balochistan National Party (BNP) party organized a rally on Thursday at Shaheed Justice Muhammad Nawaz Chowk, Distt Kohlu, according to reports, against military establishment’s apathy.

According to locals, the establishment and Pak army is busy seeking their own interest rather than paying attention to the real issues of Balochistan and the subjugated Baloch people, who are dying of poverty and hunger accentuated by the recent floods in the region, as local media reported.

Recently, Pakistan estimated the total losses from flood could be as high as $40 billion – $10 billion, a figure more than the government’s initial estimate.




Meanwhile, Randhan, a local Baloch farmer committed suicide due to his inability to look after his family. He used to support his family by farming but the recent floods destroyed his land, added the local media.

The National Party, one of the largest parties active in Pakistan’s province of Baluchistan, accused the provincial government of miserably failing in improving the law and order situation and said crimes are now a daily routine in cities, media reports said.

Secretary General of the National Party, Jan Muhammad Bulidi and member of the Central Committee, Haji Farooq Shahwani said that the Balochistan government has failed miserably in improving the law and order situation and making the national highways safe, reported The Daily Balochistan Express.
