ISLAMABAD - Balochistan Chief Minister Nawab Aslam Raisani said on Thursday that foreign forces were involved in disturbing the law and order situation in the province. Talking to reporters at the Parliament House on Thursday, Raisani took exception to statements by the United States on human rights violations in Balochistan, saying “in fact the US has been involved in human rights violations all over the world”.
As an example, he referred to the incarceration of Dr Afia Siddiqui, first in Bagram jail and then in the United States. In reply to a question, Raisani said his government was functioning well. He rejected rumours of early elections, saying that polls would be held on schedule, as “haste would be dangerous for them”.
