QUETTA – Expressing his concern over deteriorating law and order situation in the province, Governor Balochistan Nawab Zulfiqar Ali Magsi declared on Wednesday that unless the feudal lords and incompetent people, including himself sitting in the assemblies, were not sent to the gallows, no change in the system or improvement of situation was possible.
Magsi, known for being straightforward, was talking to the representatives of protesting lawyers over failure of police and other security agencies to recover their fellow Mohammad Iftikhar Advocate, who was kidnapped last month on gunpoint when he was on his way from home to drop his children at school.
The lawyers, who have been protesting since his abduction, staged a demonstration in front of Governor’s House and later met Magsi at his office on his invitation. Former president Supreme Court Bar Association Ali Ahmed Kurd, President Balochistan Bar Association Baz Mohammad Kakar and Hadi Shakeel Advocate included in the delegation.
The governor urged the need of non-discrimination between the poor and affluent ones, saying everyone was equal before law. “Ensuring the safety and protection to the lives and property of citizens is the prime responsibility of the government,” he added.
Magi said the government should fulfil its duty to restore peace in the province.
“It is evident from the growing incidents of targeted killings, abduction for ransom, theft, robbery and terrorism that the police and local administration have failed in discharging their duties, and the police despite knowing everything are sitting like lame ducks, unable to take any action against the criminals,” he said.
“The policemen are so helpless that they are unable to take revenge for the killing of their fellows who lost their lives in the incidents of targeted killings,” he remarked.
