QUETTA: Former Chief Minister of Balochistan and Central President of the National Party Dr. Abdul Malik Baloch has said the assembly and the government are mere spectators, while the real power lies elsewhere, which has brought corruption to its peak. Stressing that the situation in Balochistan is deteriorating rapidly and all economic resources are being exploited.

He expressed these views at an event held in honor of Late Ghulam Nabi Rind, a former organizer of the National Party district Usta Mohammad. The event took place at Quetta Press Club on Monday.

Addressing the audience, Dr. Malik said the estimation of slavery can be made from the fact that even today the people of Balochistan do not have the right to vote. “Votes are cast for someone else. The state machinery issues notifications of success to others, which is the epitome of slavery and oppression,” he added.

Dr. Malik Baloch said that in the past five years, there has been success in joining the people of Balochistan to the party’s platform, but institutions have tarnished politics, promoting bribery, and empowering non-political and unknown individuals over the public.

Dr. Malik further added that “Our workers are committed strugglers like Ghulam Nabi Rind, but the damage that is done to the state by eliminating the political culture, promoting corruption, and disrespecting institutions is irreparable.“

Speaking at the ceremony, party Secretary-General Senator Jan Mohammad Buledi said that the country is going through the worst political and economic crisis. It is alone in the world on the foreign front, while state institutions refuse to accept the public mandate. Unemployment, ignorance, and corruption prevail in Balochistan.

Central Secretary of Information Islam Baloch, Provincial Secretary-General Khair Bakhsh Baloch, Abdul Rasool Baloch, BSO-Pajjar Central Chairman Bohir Saleh Baloch, Miran Baloch, Hakim Baloch, Nawaz Baloch, Naeem Baloch, and Ghulam Nabi Rind’s son Haider Rind also spoke at the event. They paid tribute to Late Ghulam Nabi Rind and praised his consistent political struggle.
