QUETTA: Balochistan Muttahida Mahaz (BMM) Chairman Nawabzada Siraj Raisani on Sunday announced his party’s merger with the Balochistan Awami Party (BAP).

Mr Raisani announced the merger of his party, which had been founded by the late Nawab Ghous Bakhsh Raisani in 1970, with the newly formed BAP at a press conference. He said the decision was made keeping in view the BAP’s mission to unite people from all tribes and ethnic backgrounds living in the province for the rights of the province.

A close relative of former chief minister Nawab Sanaullah Zehri, Khuzdar District Council chairman and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Agha Shakeel Durrani and Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl leader Noor Ahmed Bangulzai and some BMM workers also announced their decision to join the BAP while addressing a joint news conference with the BAP president and a former federal minister, Jam Kamal.

BAP founder Saeed Ahmed Hashmi, general secretary Manzoor Kakar, and other leaders including Naseebullah Bazai, Mir Amanullah Notezai and Prince Ahmed welcomed them.
