The 19th Counsel session of BSO-A ends, Cabinet and Central Committee elected, members vow to continue struggle for national liberation.
The Counsel Session continued for the second day. Among various other things the agenda for the second day included constitution making, regional and international politics, election of new cabinet and concluding speech by the Chairman. All the counselors participated in the discussion and an election commission was formed.
Seven members submitted their names for the nominations and all were elected unopposed. The Central Committee was also elected unopposed.
Speaking in his concluding Speech, the BSO-A chairman, said, “The Baloch youth are fortunate that they have a platform in the form of BSO-A, which has, for 46 years, educated hundreds and thousands of Baloch youth on ideological and educational basis. A large number of Baloch youth is struggling for the national liberation after getting educational and ideological training from BSO-A.”
The provincial government openly admits that they have no say in the affairs and the FC runs a parallel government in Balochistan
As expected, the new prime minister, Raja Pervez Ashraf stated, “I categorically declare that Balochistan issue is on my priority list and I have invited disgruntled Baloch leaders to start dialogue with the government to resolve the crisis at the earliest.” He also regretted that Balochistan remained on low priority in the past, and therefore, its progress remained very slow. Anyone unfamiliar with Pakistani state’s attitude and treatment of Baloch while listening to these pronouncements would think that an entirely new Baloch-friendly party and state apparatus had come into existence and the policy of systematic deprivation and organised violence against Baloch would end forthwith. Sadly, the reality is different. Yousaf Raza Gilani, who was at the helm for four years also belonged to the Pakistan People’s Party, and all through his term, even though he promised his burning desire to create a paradise for Baloch on earth, he presided over the worst human rights abuses against the Baloch. And it is not going to be any different during the new incumbent’s term.
Earlier today Baloch Republican Party (BRP) spokesperson Sher Mohammad reported that Pakistani armed forces launched deadly operations in several parts of Balochistan including Kalat, Mastung, Manguchar, Isplinji, Nagahi, Koh-e-Maran, Khuzdar, Diagh and adjoining areas. Observers say a large number of military and para-military personnel blocked both entrances and exits to the areas and proceeded to bombard the civilian Baloch populations with heavy shelling from gunship helicopters. A Quetta source reported sighting two Hughes helicopters flying southeast in the morning. BalochJohd reported that Pakistan Air Force (PAF) fighter jets and gunship helicopters participated in the hours-long bombardment and that the army was carrying out house-to-house raids. These raids invariably end with the abduction of persons who disappear into Pakistan’s labyrinth deep state security system.
