Balochistan Assembly adopts resolution against India’s PM Narendra Modi


QUETTA: Balochistan Assembly on Saturday adopted an unanimous resolution condemning the India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi in regard to his statement about the province during his Independence Day speech, earlier this month.

The resolution, tabled by PML-N lawmaker Muhammad Khan Lehri, was supported by all political parties including National Party, Pashtoonkhwa Milli Awami Party (PkMAP), Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam and other political groups.

Balochistan Chief Minister Nawab Sanaullah Zehri along with other legislators also signed the condemnation resolution.

“The Indian prime minister’s statement about Balochistan has proved that terrorism in the province was clearly sponsored by India,” the resolution said.

Commenting on the resolution, Lehri said: “Indian Prime Minister has violated the sovereignty of Pakistan and United Nations charter in this regard.”

The house demanded the federal government to take up the statement at the international level and expose India’s nefarious designs in Balochistan.

“Modi gave such statement to divert world’s attention from occupied Kashmir”, Balochistan Home Minister Sarfaraz Bugti said.

National Party leader Sardar Aslam Bizenjo strongly condemned Indian premier’s statement and urged upon all political forces to get united to foil designs of the enemies of Pakistan.

“We stand united for Pakistan,” he added.

The house had earlier adopted a condemnation resolution against Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain with regard to national institutions and against the stability of Pakistan.

The resolution was tabled by province’s Home Minister Sarfaraz Bugti.
