SRINAGAR: Balochistan chief minister, Nawab Sanaullah Zehri, is going to send a delegation of provincial lawmakers to friendly states for raising the issue of India’s involvement in fomenting violence in the province, a report said.
According to a report carried by Express Tribune, Zehri stated that a letter would also be written to United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in this regard.
Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, in his Independence Day address, had thanked the people of Balochistan, Gilgit and Pakistan-administered Kashmir for the goodwill they had shown towards him.
He had also said that the “time has come that Pakistan shall have to answer to the world for the atrocities committed by it against people in Balochistan and PoK”.
Modi’s remarks were rejected by Pakistan, with the country’s Prime Minister, Nawaz Sharif, forming a team of 22 parliamentarians as special envoys that would travel to various countries to highlight the situation on the Kashmir issue and cement Pakistan’s stand in the Kashmir dispute.
