ISLAMABAD - Chairman Pakistan Tahreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan expressed grave concern over the continuing plight of Shahzain Bugti and his tribe’s people as they seek to return to their homes in Dera Bugti following a SC decision. The caravan of the Bugti tribe which has been stopped from going home at Kashmore, also includes women, children and the elderly all of whom are being forced to camp under the open sky in this extremely cold and inclement weather. Imran Khan called on the government to immediately facilitate the return of these Bugtis to homes on humanitarian grounds. He said the treatment being meted out to the Bugti caravan was inhuman and simply unacceptable.

“At a time when we should be reaching out to all our Baloch brethren so that we can reduce the feeling of disenfranchisement and marginalisation amongst them, this cruelty being shown to the Bugti caravan seeking a return to their homes simply reaffirms the negative propaganda our enemies convey to our Baloch citizens,” Imran Khan added.  Imran Khan reiterated that the government should facilitate the return of Shahzain Bugti and his caravan to Dera Bugti immediately, instead of putting unnecessary obstacles effectively denying them this return.
