Congratulation Sardar Akhtar Jan Mengal. Good to know that you are part of assembly and late result indicates the poor performance of Election commission of Pakistan. Chief Election commission, Justice (R) Fakhar uddin and his team, has disappointed the nation to large extend. I hope you will do good work for the masses. Regards Shahid

It is heartening to know that Sardar Akhtar Mengal will be part of the democratic process and represent us in the assembly. Hope that his presence in the country and the assembly will be beneficial for the people of Baluchistan.
