QUETTA - Urging for imposition of Governor’s rule, Chairman Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan has said that Balochistan government had completely failed to provide security to the people thus it should step down.

Imran stated this during his visit to Quetta on Sunday.

He specially arrived in Quetta to express solidarity with the families of the victims of Quetta bomb blasts in which more than 120 people, including 86 hailing from Hazara Shia community were killed and 150 others received serious injuries on Thursday. Imran accompanied by other PTI leaders, including Javed Hashmi, Jahangir Tareen, Fauzia Kasuri and others visited sit-in protest held by Qaumi Yakjehti Council and Majlis Wahdat-e-Muslimeen at Alamdar Road keeping bodies of victims alongwith demanding for imposition of Governor’s rule.

Later, PTI leaders visited hunger-strike camp established by Hazara Democratic Party (HDP) outside IGP Balochistan office, to condemn the target killing and bomb attacks on Hazara community. Talking to media on the occasion, Imran said that Federal and provincial governments had completely failed to maintain law and order and provide security to the masses. “Rulers are busy in corruption and looting money,” he said, adding, that it had been the demand of entire nation that Balochistan government should step down.

Criticising the provincial government, he said that the rulers were interested merely in minting money instead of providing security to the people.

“We have arrived in Quetta to express solidarity with Hazara community,” he said, and vowed that PTI would continue its struggle till justice was delivered to the Hazara community.

“Balochistan is heading towards destruction and there is no government existed. People are quitting the province while rulers are busy in setting records of corruption,” he alleged, adding, that rulers would use the looted money in forthcoming elections. Imran admitted that Tahir-ur-Qadri rightly said that interim government should be impartial and elections should be fair and free.

“If impartial government and transparent elections were not held there would be more chaos in the country,” he stated. He said that the situation of Balochistan could not be improved with incumbent set up thus Governor’s rule should be imposed and earnest steps should be taken for the security of people.

PTI senior leader Javed Hashmi on the occasion regretted over the killings of people of Hazara community and deteriorating law and order situation.
