Provinces should be given their basic rights: Achakzai


QUETTA: Pakhtunkhwa Milli Awami Party (PK-MAP) leader Mehmood Khan Achakzai on Wednesday said the country’s foreign police should be based on recommendations put forth by all the four provinces.


Addressing a rally on the occasion of nationalist leader Abdul Samad Khan’s death anniversary, the PK-MAP leader said the provinces should be given their basic rights.

Achakzai linked completion of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) with peace in the region. He said peace cannot be achieved until the environment of distrust between Afghanistan and Pakistan is eliminated.

“Both the countries (Pakistan and Afghanistan) need peace,” he added.

Achakzai said the soil is dearest to Pashtun after the holy Quran and Kalima and the nation will not make any compromise on it.

The PK-MAP leader said the people of Balochistan should also be given their basic rights.
