QUETTA Balochistan National Party-M chief Sardar Akhtar Mengal said on Thursday that anti-Baloch forces were trying to create differences among nationalist parties and called upon nationalists to foil such conspiracies and launch a united struggle for national rights.

Addressing a public meeting in Panjgur, he said the BNP-M would neither compromise on Baloch rights nor abandon the struggle against 'oppressive methods' of the establishment.

He said the BNP-M and other Baloch groups had the same objective and they must overcome their differences and adopt a strategy for unified struggle.

Sardar Mengal said his party had always rendered sacrifices for the Baloch rights and no one could accuse its leadership of having compromised the rights of Baloch. He said that the BNP believed in a progressive and democratic national struggle to protect the coast and resources of the Baloch people.
