QUETTA - Lauding the decision of PML-N and its alliance in Balochistan, Sardar Akhtar Mengal, the chief of Balochistan National Party (Mengal), on Sunday said that the issue in Balochistan is not that of appointment of Chief Minister or Governor but the real issue was that of the particular mindset of ruling elite.

Talking to media here, he said that if the issue of the missing persons and mutilated bodies is resolved, it would be a fortunate occasion for the people of Balochistan, adding, that however, it seemed difficult. He said that his party has not announced the future course yet and it would be decided in the party’s general body meeting which would also continue on Monday. He said that the decision of the party members was commendable and he had no right to criticise it, adding, that until the government is made powerful in Balochistan, the issue of Balochistan would not be resolved. He said that even during the rule of caretaker government as many as 279 people were whisked away and 100 fell prey to targeted killings including 50 mutilated bodies were found in Balochistan.
