QUETTA: Balochistan Chief Minister Mir Abdul Quddus Bizenjo hasn’t joined any political party yet but he has sympathies with the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and will join it before the upcoming general elections, said PPP’s provincial president Haji Ali Madad Jattak.

“The provincial capital is turning into another Larkana as a large number of people from Balochistan have decided to join hands with us,” he said, adding that PPP would be an undefeatable political force.

Addressing a press conference at the Quetta Press Club on Thursday, he announced that Awami National Party’s Nazim Malik Khan Wali Nasir had joined the PPP.

Discussing the chief minister, Mr Jattak said that the party hadn’t invited Mr Bizenjo to join “because sooner or later we know he will join the PPP as he sympathises with us”.Discussing the party’s future in Balochistan, he said that the people of Balochistan had said goodbye to nationalist parties and Quetta would soon be PPP’s second stronghold after Larkana.

“Nationalists have given nothing to the people of this province except for despondency and false promises, the PPP will revive the province,” Mr Jattak added.
