Parliamentary leader Awami National Party (ANP) Balochistan, Asghar Khan Achakzai has lamented over the protest on behalf of opposition members at Bijli road police station. “What an irony, prisoners are eating Sajji in the police station”, Mr. Achakzai told a news conference at Quetta Press Club on Saturday.

Provincial ministers Saleem Khoso and Arif Jan Muhammad Hassani were also present on the occasion. Government ministers lashed out at protesting opposition members for what they call an undemocratic attitude.

“Opposition turned police station into a press club”

Asghar Achakzai mentioned that opposition members were holding press conferences and invitations inside the police station. “A prisoner cannot address a press conference”, he added.

Saleem Khoso urged the opposition to end the protest and come into the house to debate issues relating to Balochistan. “They should debate the budget inside the house”, Mr. Khoso stated.

Asghar Achakzai said the opposition should not turn the police station into a press club for addressing press conferences. “Opposition should come to press club and address press conferences”, he added.

The opposition accuses the government of ignoring their constituencies 

Opposition political parties have accused the Balochistan government of ignoring their constituencies. However, the government claimed to have given equal importance in terms of funds to all constituencies.

Opposition members’ protest entered the 13th day on Saturday. Opposition leader in Balochistan Assembly, Malik Sikandar Advocate had threatened to launch a hunger strike inside the police station.

The opposition legislators have refused to end the protest despite repeated rounds of talks with the government negotiating team. Opposition members had offered voluntary arrests at Bijli road police station after registration of FIR. Although, the government has withdrawn the FIR three days back. However, the deadlock between the opposition and the government still persists till the filing of this report.
