MULTAN, Feb: Sardar Khan Muhammad, chief of Kalpar tribe, has alleged that former prime minister Mian Nawaz Sharif had displaced 8,000 Kalpars (a sub-clan of Bugti) from Sui and forced them to migrate to Punjab and Sindh just to win votes of seven MPs from the Bugti group.
"The Bugtis occupied 30,000 acres of our fertile land and had now become a sources of trouble for the government." Addressing a press conference here Friday along with his two sons Anwar Ali and Mushtaq Ali, he said that the government should rehabilitate the Kalpars in Sui area for the protection of important installations and for the construction of cantonment to get rid of the Akbar Bugti's 'blackmail.'
He said that Nawab Akbar had not even a single inch of land in Sui and it was the property of the Kalpars but the government was instead paying royalty to Bugti. He alleged that Akbar Bugti had asked a Chinese firm to pay him Rs120 million for work on Pat feeder canal and later asked an Iranian firm which was changing the gas plant to pay Rs60 million.
"But we protected the two companies from the blackmail." Sardar Khan alleged that Bugtis had killed his son Amir Hamza. "Then we took revenge and killed Akbar Bugti's son Salal Bugti as per tribal traditions.
Later Bugti killed 35 people, including my four sons, three nephews, two uncles besides injuring my wife." Sardar Khan Muhammad demand an end to 'Sardari' system and restoration of democracy in Balochistan. -PPI
