Many Baloch were disappointed by the attitude of Akhtar Mengal for not meeting Baloch in US during his on going trip, below is a comment by a Baloch
"I am really disappointed that Sardar Akhtar Sahib comes to D.C and did not even bother to meet few Baloch here. What kind of impression it gives to Pakistanis that our prominent Baloch leader from a prominent party visits US Capitol and could not get time to meet his own people. Despite my calls to Dr Tarachand and Akram, I had no luck. Previously in 2001 Elder Sardar Saheb came and we were honored to be host to him. I as Baloch very disappointed by this attitude."
