KOHLU: A huge congregation was held at Kohlu, Balochistan on Wednesday to welcome self-exiled Baloch leader Dr Jumma Khan Marri’s decision of disassociating himself from the Baloch separatist movement and to join the national mainstream.

The event started in the form of a rally that was taken out from Kohlu’s Bank Chowk, with participants carrying banners that welcomed the decision of Dr Marri. Several tribal elders from the area also attended the gathering.

Addressing from Moscow, Dr Marri thanked the people of Pakistan, especially his supporters in Kohlu, for arranging such a big congregation to welcome his decision.

He said that projects like Gwadar port and China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) would change the fate of Balochistan. All those opposing these projects were not only the enemies of Pakistan but were also hurting the people of Balochistan, he added.

He asked all Balochis to lay down their weapons and start supporting development activities in the province. He said the Indian funded so-called Baloch leaders were enjoying a life of luxurious in Europe, while on the contrary, the common Baloch people were suffering from terrorism and growing violence. He said that only the Balochis had suffered at the hands of the attackers and were the primary victims of violence in the province
