DERA MURAD JAMALI: Balochistan National Party-Mengal (BNP-M) secretary general Senator Jahanzeb Jamaldini said on Friday that it was a pity that the people of those areas of Balochistan from where gas was supplied to all over the country were deprived of this commodity.

“People from Karachi to Kashmir used gas supplied from Balochistan’s areas, but our mothers and sisters in these areas don’t have access to this natural resource of their own,” he said while talking to reporters after his party’s workers convention in Dera Allah Yar.

The provinces should be given control over their natural resources, he said, adding that his party would not allow anyone to loot natural resources of Balochistan. “The people of Balochistan are the real owner of this province’s natural wealth,” he said.
