LAHORE After failing to get positive response from political parties in the Punjab regarding its planned move to regain control over Dera Bugti, the Jamhoori Watan Party (JWP) has decided to leave Lahore on Friday (today) only with a media team to reach Kashmore late in the night. The JWP leaders, however, expect some 10,000 Balochs would join their caravan from Sahiwal, Multan, DG Khan and Rajanpur on their way to Kashmore, the meeting point of all the marchers coming from the four provinces. Talking to TheNation on Thursday, JWP spokesperson, Wasim Raja lamented that despite rhetoric to resolve Balochistan problems, no political leader from the Punjab had given positive response to JWPs call for a long march. He said: He will leave only with a media team from Lahore today between 3 to 4 pm to reach Kahmore, a small town in Punjab bordering Sindh, Balochistan and Punjab. Shahzain Bugti would lead the march from Quetta, Raja said, while his grandmother would lead the caravan from Kashmore, as she would reach Sui from Karachi in a chartered plane. She will then travel towards Kashmore by road to lead the march, he added. The spokesperson said: I expect some 10,000 Balochs who have migrated from Balochistan in the past to gather at Kashmore from parts of southern Punjab. Around 5,000 people will come from Sindh and some 2,000 to 3,000 Balochs may come from Khyber Pakhtunkhawa to join the big caravan. Some 0.15 million Balochs are already there at Sui to start their onward journey to Dera Bugti. Earlier, the JWP leader, Shahzain Bugti, who spent two days in the City waiting for the political leaders to come and see him at a local hotel, got no response to his call, as nobody gave him commitment to support his plan to lead a long march from Lahore to Dera Bugti on January 28 (today). During a press conference on Sunday, Shahzain had invited leaders of political and religious parties for a meeting at a local hotel to enlist their support, but no one turned up to see him there. Shahzain also did not get any response from PML-N, whose Quaid Nawaz Sharif had been much vocal about the rights of Baloch people and had been demanding Musharrafs trial for killing Baloch leader Akbar Khan Bugti. During his two-day stay in the City, he tried desperately to get some time from Nawaz Sharif to seek his partys support for the long march, but in vain. Later, he addressed a news conference and said it was time to act for those who had been speaking in the favour of slain Baloch leader Akbar Khan Bugti and Balochistan problems in the past.
