PESHAWAR: Mir Ghaus Bakhsh Bizenjo, Governor of Baluchistan, said here this afternoon [Sept 19] that any attempt to break the unity of Frontier and Baluchistan by the Central Government would not be in the interest of the country. The Governor was asked by reporters at the airport on his arrival from Quetta whether he had felt greater inclination of the Centre towards Baluchistan as compared to the Frontier. He said as yet he had no such feeling but if it was so “it would be dangerous”. The Governor also denied that he had any differences with his party chief Khan Abdul Wali Khan and said there was no question of this neither now nor in the future. Mir Ghaus Bakhsh Bizenjo said he was satisfied with the clarification of the so-called London Plan by the President in Karachi. He, however, denounced the attempts made by some “irresponsible” Ministers to create misunderstandings between the Centre and the provinces… .
