He announced that JI would give a call for wheel jam strike on May 1 against the abduction of Saeed Ahmed Baloch.
Baloch said locals and family members of the missing JI leader apprehended that Saeed Ahmed Baloch was abducted by government agencies.
He said there was strong resentment and a revolt- like situation in Balochistan due to the attitude of the government, the armed forces, agencies, Frontier Constabulary and Coast Guards, etc. he said the entire responsibility of this rested with the authorities in Islamabad.
Liaquat Baloch also demanded trial of former military dictator Pervez Musharraf under article 6 of the Constitution for breaching the Constitution and other heinous crimes like assassination of Sardar Akbar Bugti, Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto, massacre of hundreds of innocent girl students of Jamia Hafsa, bloodshed at Lal Masjid and abducting thousands of patriot Pakistanis and handing them over to Washington for the sake of dollars.
Commenting on the designs of MQM for Punjab, Liaquat Baloch remarked that MQM was fast losing in Karachi and it could not gain ground in Punjab. He said MQM chief while sitting in London could only befool the people of Karachi, but the people of Punjab won’t be taken in by him. He hoped that JI would soon regain its lost position in Karachi.
