On Tuesday, Baloch Republican Party chief Brahamdagh Bugti spoke on the current scenario saying, there is a war like situation in Balochistan, and human rights violations are rampant due to heavy presence of military forces in the region.
“In Balochistan, it is a war like situation. There is a huge presence of military and Frontier Corps (FC) in areas like Quetta. And they pick up people for slightest of political activity,” Bugti told ANI.

He further added that the people of Balochistan have tried long enough to be a part of Pakistan but they have always been exploited.
“When we were forcibly merged with Pakistan we tried to stay with it and be given equal rights but whenever we talked about our rights, military operations were conducted and our people were killed. This is the fifth military operation and is being done since ten years. Our language is different, culture is different, code of life is different so there is no point that we stay with them forcibly,” Bugti said.
