Operation alone won’t resolve Balochistan issue: Mustafa Kamal


QUETTA: Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) leader Syed Mustafa Kamal said that operation alone won’t resolve the issue of Balochistan, adding that the recovery of mutilated bodies should come to an end.


The PSP leader made these remarks on his maiden visit to Quetta, where he opened the party’s office.

“Neither mutilated bodies should be found nor should people go missing,” he said.

The former Karachi mayor stressed that military operation alone won’t resolve the problems being faced by the province. “I have not come here to become Prime Minister. I am here to convey my message and listen to others,” he said.

Kamal emphasized on the need to devolve power to the grass-roots institutions. “People expect everything from Prime Minister or Chief Minister. It is not their job to install sewerage systems,” he pointed out.

“We will have to change the 70 years of outdated system to empower people and resolve their issues,” he said.

To a question, he said that the Kashmir dispute was not the basic issue of Pakistanis.

About the Panama Leaks, he said that people, who were dying of hunger, weren’t bothered by such issues.
