ISLAMABAD: The Balochistan assembly has adopted a unanimous resolution condemning Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his statement about the Pakistani province during his Independence Day speech on August 15.
The resolution, tabled by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) lawmaker Muhammad Khan Lehri, was supported by all political parties, Dawn online reported.
Balochistan Chief Minister Nawab Sanaullah Zehri signed the condemnation resolution. “Modi’s statement about Balochistan has proved that terrorism in the province was clearly sponsored by India,” the resolution said.
Commenting on the resolution, Lehri said: “Modi has violated the sovereignty of Pakistan and the United Nations charter in this regard.”
“Modi gave such statement to divert world’s attention from Kashmir,” Balochistan Home Minister Sarfaraz Bugti said.
National Party leader Sardar Aslam Bizenjo condemned the statement and urged all political forces to get united to foil designs of the enemies of Pakistan. “We stand united for Pakistan,” he said.
The house had earlier adopted a condemnation resolution against Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain with regard to national institutions and against the stability of Pakistan.
