“This is a very good move and we expect that India will keep raising this issue because India is that democratic country and responsible country which undertakes its responsibility with sincerity,” Bugti told ANI.
“The developments which are taking after Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech, I feel this will help stop massacres of Baloch people and the sufferings we are facing for over 50-60 years will end. We are seeing a ray, because usually when such statements are raised, it only remains as a statement. But in this case, there is continuity.”
“The people of our community are watching Indian brothers, the support we are getting, and we always wanted that,” he added.
When asked about his brother who is in Pakistan he said, “Pakistanis do such stunts. He stays in Islamabad and isn’t able to go to Balochistan. So, if they five people supporting them, then they start saying that they will fight against India. When they can’t do anything for their country, then what will they do for Pakistan. Everyone is lying.”
Bugti is currently seeking political asylum in India, who has been living in Switzerland spoke about the current issue of Balochistan and said, he is hoping for something positive.

On Monday Swaraj said, “Those accusing others of human rights violations would do well to introspect and see what egregious abuses they are perpetrating in their own country, including in Balochistan. The brutality against the Baloch people represents the worst form of state oppression.”
Swaraj advised Islamabad to give up its dream of separating any part of India, saying “Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India and will always remain so.”
