KASUR - Former foreign minister Khursheed Mahmood Kasuri said the law and order situation in Balochistan had collapsed and killing of the innocent people had become the order of the day. He said under such circumstances, the Balochistan government ought to have resigned.

All the new participants are from PP-177. Mr. Kasuri said the rulers had focused on prolonging their tenure rather than to solving the problems. He said by other bench marks including health, education, foreign policy, law and order, joblessness and corruption, there was a wide gulf between the priorities of the public and those ruling them. Addressing the workers and the new participants, he urged the participation of the youth and minorities in the party.
