LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday reiterated his party full support for the people of Balochistan and vowed to make all possible efforts to remove their sense of deprivation. Talking to a delegation of PML-Quaid (PML-Q) leaders and parliamentarians from Balochistan at his Raiwind residence, Nawaz said, The PML-N is determined to fighting for the political rights of Baloch people with the same spirit that it demonstrated during the movement for the independence of the judiciary. Expressing solidarity with the people of Balochistan, Nawaz said developing the province to bring it at par with Punjab and Sindh was necessary to redressing Baloch people grievances. But even development work becomes meaningless if the people are not granted fundamental social and political rights.The PML-N believes in the equal distribution of the country natural resources among the four provinces. The provision of provincial autonomy according to the 1973 Constitution will remove the alienated provinces sense of deprivation and will go a long way in cementing ties between federal and provincial governments. Talking about the ruthless killings of Baloch leaders, Nawaz urged the government to hold an impartial judicial inquiry into the killings and bring the criminals to justice.
