Sardar Akhtar Mengal, chief of his own faction of the Balochistan National Party (BNP), has said that there would be no let-up in BNP’s struggle for securing the rights of the people in Balochistan.                   

Sardar Mengal said that the BNP was neither frightened by the usurpers nor would it compromise on sacrifices rendered by Nawab Akbar Bugti and Nawabzada Balaach Marri. He said that as army chief President Musharraf was “very arrogant” and threatened to annihilate the Baloch leadership, but now things were different. 

“Today, thousands of people are here … but the man who had once been a dictator is living a life in isolation,” the Dawn quoted Mengal as saying while addressing a large public meeting here late on Monday night. 

Nations could not be enslaved by weapons; he said and added that the current military operation was the fifth in Balochistan since 1958. “Sophisticated weapons have failed to suppress the political movement of the Baloch people.”
