QUETTA: The Balochistan government has finalised a strategy to ensure peaceful elections in the province.
Sources in the Provincial Home and Tribal Affairs Department told Dawn.com that more than 22000 military and frontier corps personnel were being deployed in all thirty districts of Balochistan.
Military and FC contingents have reached almost all sensitive districts of Balochistan on Sunday evening to ensure peaceful electioneering, the Home Department Source, who requested not to be named, confirmed.
He said ballot papers were also being reached in troubled parts of the province to ensure elections as per schedule given by the Election Commission of Pakistan.
The Balochistan Government has ordered deployment of military and paramilitary troops following a rise in attacks on candidates and election offices of political parties.
The decision to this affect was made at a high level meeting chaired by Interim Chief Minister Nawab Ghous Bakhsh Baroozai earlier on.
