QUETTA/KARACHI: The leader of the Baloch National Front (BNF) Brahamdagh Bugti, said on Wednesday the third death anniversary of Nawab Akbar Bugti, that the Baloch living in Karachi cannot be separated from the land and people of Balochistan.
Brahamdagh gave a telephonic address to the people of Lyari, which is predominantly Baloch. He said that they could not be separated from the movement in Baluchistan.
“A conspiracy is being hatched to cut Karachi’s Baloch from the land and people of Balochistan on the basis of the argument that they are part of Karachi and they have no relation to Balochistan,” he said.
“But we want to clarify that we are all Baloch by identity and we belong to the same land and have the same interests.”
Nationalist parties that were offering promises of jobs and provincial autonomy to their people were basically deceiving them, he said. “The government is still following its policy of divide and rule. But we didn’t accept the government’s offer for talks yesterday and we will not accept this offer tomorrow. We will continue our struggle till we achieve our objectives,” he pledged.
Brahamdagh said that Nawab Akbar Bugti sacrificed his life for the Baloch people and for Balochistan, and that his followers would continue his mission.
