Akhtar Mengal says one year given to govt, now free to take decision


Chairman Balochistan National Party (BNP) Sardar Akhtar Mengal said on Saturday that his party had given the government one year and now it was free to take decision.

He said the incumbent government was not responsible for the current inflation, but the previous governments which had taken huge loans. Talking to the media here, he said a huge amount of budget was allocated for paying interest on foreign loans. He lamented that the loans, obtained in the past, were not spent on useful and productive areas.

Replying to a question, he said he had suggested the government to form a special committee, comprising parliamentarians to solve problems of Balochistan. About the south Punjab province, he said the demands of people should be met.

About the involvement of foreign agencies in damaging peace in Balochistan, he said such enemy hands should be traced and their cases should be taken to the International Court of Justice.
