QUETTA: Opposing the use of state apparatus against antagonists, the Balochistan National Party-Mengal has said that the issue of Balochistan has political, constitutional and economic dimensions to it and therefore political means should be employed to settle it.

The BNP-M said in a statement that party leader Akhtar Mengal had submitted a six-point agenda to the Supreme Court for resolving the issues confronted by the people of the province.

It claimed that its representative Agha Hasan Baloch at the all-party conference organised by the provincial government on Tuesday had suggested some points for inclusion in the declaration but they were ignored.
