QUETTA: PML-N chief Mian Nawaz Sharif is in Quetta for 2-day visit where he met with the delegation of National Party lead by Senator Dr Abdul Malik Baloch at MPA hostel, Geo News reported Friday.

While addressing the delegation, Nawaz regretted the military operation in Balochistan and said that people of the province were not treated fairly and their sentiments were hurt but it is the time for accountability and address their issues.

He questioned the PPP government that what steps were taken to solve the problems of Balochistan including the issues of target killings, kidnappings, and recovering missing persons. He also asked what did the government do to address the murder of Nawab Akbar Bugti.

The PML-N chief also highlighted that no action had been taken after the Kharotabad incident, where five foreigners were killed by security forces. He said that without addressing these issues, peace cannot be restored in the province and that the Balochistan package is not enough to solve its problems.

Nawaz said that he had many plans for the province and pledged for serious efforts to uplift the province if elected again.

He said that Balochistan’s Gawadar port had the potential to compete with Dubai and other Gulf countries. He said it was his dream to develop Gawadar and that he does not know who stopped the developments.

The PML-N leader also said that everything in Balochistan had been destroyed, and that this had ended up hurting the people of this province.
