Calling Balochistan crisis one of the most important issues in the country, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has assured Balochistan National Party-Mengal (BNP-M) chief Sardar Akhtar Mengal that the federal government was trying to resolve the matter on priority basis.
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif met with the Balochistan National Party-Mengal (BNP-M) chief Sardar Akhtar Mengal in Islamabad on Friday.
According to the PM House spokesperson, the leaders discussed the deteriorating law and order in Balochistan that had crippled the provincial administration.
Moreover, Mengal informed the prime minister about the current status of the city and also enlightened him about the measures taken for improvement in the province.
Nawaz said the government was also bringing all political parties and leaders of Balochistan to the table so that the problem could be solved in a peaceful manner.
Sources said Mengal had always preferred Nawaz over the federal government for political discussions on Balochistan crisis.
Last September, the Baloch leader had refused to meet a team of federal ministers, including Law and Justice Minister Farooq H Naik, in Islamabad.
Mengal, who lives in self-exile in the United Arab Emirates, returned to Pakistan in March this year.
