QUETTA: Chief Minister of Balochistan, Sarfraz Bugti, along with other ministers, announced the formation of a parliamentary committee aimed at tackling the longstanding issues of peace, security, and the missing persons issue in the province.

Chief Minister Sarfraz Bugti stated, “We are committed to creating a comprehensive plan that ensures peace and order prevail in Balochistan, allowing our people to live without fear.” The committee, to include representation from opposition parties, is set to deliberate on various aspects of the Balochistan issue, with a focus on formulating effective policies.

Bugti emphasized the importance of negotiation in resolving the Balochistan problem, stating, “It is imperative that we seek peaceful solutions. However, if negotiations fail, we must consider alternative measures.”

Addressing the pressing issue of missing persons, Bugti acknowledged the gravity of the situation, stating, “The missing persons dilemma is a significant concern for our nation.” He revealed that a commission has made progress in resolving 80 percent of the cases but acknowledged the challenges in identifying missing individuals.

Furthermore, Chief Minister Bugti condemned recent acts of violence, including the killing of an individual in the Kohlu district of Balochistan. He urged citizens to unite against terrorism, particularly condemning groups like RAW Funded Lashkar, which have inflicted harm on innocent civilians.

Bugti also highlighted external factors contributing to terrorism in the region, stating, “Those who perpetrate acts of terrorism in the name of religion are receiving support from across the border in Afghanistan.”

The announcement of the parliamentary committee signals a concerted effort by the government to address longstanding issues in Balochistan, with a focus on fostering peace, security, and reconciliation in the troubled region.
