Targeted killings undermine legitimate Baloch cause: Imran

Published: April 28, 2010

ISLAMABAD – Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Imran khan has said that targeted killings of settlers in Quetta and other parts of Balochistan undermine the legitimate cause of the people of Balochistan.

Imran Khan condemned the killing of a lady Professor in Quetta on Tuesday. He said the Provincial Government has failed to provide security to the people of the province. He said it was the responsibility of all the political forces, particularly those fighting for the rights of the people of Balochistan, to categorically condemn the killing of innocent settlers who had every right to live and work in any part of Balochistan.

The PTI chief said that the ruling PPP coalition government in Balochistan was merely paying lip service to the cause of the people of the province. By championing the cause of Balochistan, they are only demanding greater resources to siphon off, he added. “How else can the Government justify that all except one member of the provincial assembly are ministers or holding equivalent status at taxpayers’ expense. If the Provincial Government was committed to the cause of Balochistan, they would reduce the size of the provincial cabinet to around 10 and the rest of the MPAs would work for the betterment of the people,” he further said.

The PTI Chairman called for fresh elections in Balochistan as the real representatives of the people of the province boycotted the last elections. Only the genuine representatives of the people could improve the worsening security situation in Balochistan and implement development projects which would improve the livelihood of the people of the province irrespective of their ethnicity, Imran added.
