QUETTA - PPP Balochistan President and provincial minister Mir Sadiq Umrani while criticising Provincial Home Minister Mir Zafarullah Zehri has said that majority of the incidents of dacoities and robberies were being taken place in home minister’s constituency.

Addressing a news conference at Quetta Press Club on Wednesday, he said that the Home Minister on the behest of intelligence and law enforcement agencies was giving statements against Balochistan government.

“Instead of making statements against government in the media, the minister should raise the issue in the cabinet,” he added.

Sadiq Umrani said it was the responsibility of the home minister to provide security to the people but unfortunately most of the incidents of dacoities and robberies were being occurred in Suraab area.

It may be mentioned here that earlier Home minister Mir Zafarullah Zehri had disclosed that some ministers were involved in the incidents of kidnapping for ransom. Referring to Senate elections, Sadiq Umrani said PPP was holding negotiations with Awami National Party, Balochistan National Party-Awami and Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam.

He said if the members of Balochistan Assembly voted any outsider candidate the people would throw shoes on them.

Earlier, Sardarzada Haider Ali along with his colleagues parted their ways with Tehrik-i-Insaf and joined Pakistan People’s Party.
