QUETTA: Dr Abdul Malik Baloch, a consensus nominee of the three main parties for the post of Balochistan chief minister, has said he will quit the government if he fails to restore peace and end human rights violations in the province.

Talking to journalists here on Sunday after the announcement of his nomination by PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif for the coveted post, he said he would meet all stakeholders, including nationalist leaders, and seek their cooperation in maintaining law and order and bringing peace to Balochistan.

“I will approach everyone and request him to extend his cooperation and play a role in restoring peace since progress and prosperity of the people of Balochistan are linked to peace,” the National Party chief said. “The utmost priority of my government will be to bring an end to violation of human rights,” Dr Baloch said.

He said he was thankful to Mian Nawaz Sharif, Pakhtunkhwa Milli Awami Party chief Mehmood Khan Achakzai and leaders of his party for nominating him as a consensus candidate for the post of chief minister and promised to fulfil the responsibility given to him.

Answering a question, he said Sardar Ataullah Mengal and Akhtar Jan Mengal had a major role in Balochistan’s politics and he requested them to cooperate with his government in securing peace and putting the province on the track of progress and development.

You ( Dawn.com ) are requested to NOT use just Malik while referring to him because this reminds of " someone " else asa well as huge amounts of rubbish statements.

For a second, I too thought 'he' was back. But it turned out to be a different Malik.
