KARACHI: Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) Chief Altaf Hussain on Thursday said that calling an All Party Conference (APC) on Balochistan is futile unless operations against the Baloch come to a halt, DawnNews reported.

Speaking with the Chief of Awami Muslim League (AML) Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed on telephone, Hussain said that Balochistan is the gravest issue Pakistan is currently facing because the province is on the verge of separation.

MQM chief said that already there has been a lot of delay in addressing the issue and calling APC at this point in time would not be effective unless prominent Baloch leadership would be part of it.

“Now there is a need of some serious decision making and ending the operations against the Baloch.” Hussain added.

AML chief also agreed with Altaf’s point of view.
