QUETTA–Pakistan Muslim League (N) is gaining strength in Balochistan as another MPA of Balochistan Assembly and many tribal elders from Naseerabad joined the party few days back. Mir Zahoor Hussain Khosa ,MPA, had also remained the former Speaker of Balochistan Assembly.

He joined the party under the leadership of Chief of Jhalawan Sardar Sanaullah Zehri after meeting with Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif in Lahore few days back.Zahoor Hussain Khosa had contested elections independently in 2008 general elections. He was a stalwart of Jamhoori Watan Party till the death of its founder late Nawab Muhammad Akbar Khan Bugti. But after assassination of Nawab Bugti, Zahoor Khosa had parted his ways with the party and joined PML (Q).

He did not contest elections on the ticket of PML(Q) rather preferred to fight elections as an independent candidate as he thought there would be no future of Q-League after ouster of its mentor Pervez Musharraf from power.He is a well respected personality of Khosa tribe, one of the influential and biggest tribes of Naseerabad division.Out of five seats of Naseerabad district two seats were won by Khosas in 2008 elections.

After joining of Mir Zahoor Hussain Khosa, the number of members of PML-N in Balochistan Assembly has reached three.It is important to mention here that PML-N had failed to bag any seat of Balochistan Assembly or National Assembly from Balochistan but after elections Captain (Retd) Abdul Khaliq who won from the border town of Chaman joined the party.

Later on, Chief of Jhalawan Sardar Sanaullah Zehri and MNA from Balochistan Lt.General (Retd) Abdul Qadir also joined the party.Both Sardar Sanaullah Zehri and Captain (Retd) Abdul Khaliq are also members of provincial Cabinet.

Besides Zahoor Khosa many other influential people from Naseerabad including Mir Attaullah Buledi had also joined the party after their meeting with Mian Nawaz Sharif.Buledi had contested the elections on PPP ticket from PB-25 Jaffarabad and had given a tough contest to late Minister of Balochistan, Mir Rustam Khan Jamali in 2008 elections
