BNP-M plans Baloch MPC

Published March 16, 2007

QUETTA, March 15: Balochistan National Party (Mengal) secretary-general Habib Jalib Baloch has said that a multi-party conference of Baloch political parties will be convened soon to determine future course of action to protect resources and coastal belt of Balochistan.

Speaking to party activists after his release from the jail ward of the civil hospital on Thursday, he said that the negotiation stage had passed and the Baloch would now struggle for national and sovereign rights.

The Balochistan High Court granted bail to Mr Jalib in two cases on surety of Rs200,000 in each case.

Activists of the BNP-M accorded warm welcome to him and brought him in a procession to the Pirkani house in Sariab.

The Baloch leader was arrested in Gwadar on November 30, 2006.

Mr Jalib said that the Balochistan issue was not on the agenda of the multi-party conference to be held in London on March 24.
