QUETTA: Balochistan government should devise strategies to restrict afghan refugees to their camps just like the policies of Khyber Pakhtunkhaw government, said Balochistan National Party (BNP) in a press statement on Saturday.
“Afghan Immigrants are not the Problem of Baloch, the statement said.”
Afghan Immigrants have brought extremism, religious, militancy and sectarianism to the entire country. Therefore, BNP urged government of Balochistan to take steps against the settlement of Afghan Immigrants in Quetta and other Baloch areas of Balochistan.
“Government should make arrangements for the respectable exodus of Afghan Immigrants,” added the statement of BNP.
BNP alleged that some ministers in current government of Balochistan are using their political influence to unblock the Computerized National Identity Cards (CNICs) of the Afghan Immigrants.
Issuance of illegal CNICs has been proven by confessions of arrested National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) officials in Investigations conducted by National Accountability Bureau (NAB) and Federal Investigation Agency (FIA). Still the government which itself has come to power through rigging is not concerned about it, added the statement of BNP
BNP demanded that NADRA officials in Balochistan and Islamabad should not succumb to the pressure of Ministers of Balochistan government for issuing CNICs to Afghan Immigrants.
It must be noted that it was revealed in high level security meeting, few weeks ago, that Afghan Immigrants are involved in the major crimes in Quetta city.
