Nomination of Dr. Abdul Malik as the new chief minister of Balochistan has created sensational fanfares among the masses. Some encourage it as political maturity by the federation and some consider it as a landmark due to its non tribal characteristic.
Comparatively, sequestration of new government by Dr. Abdul Malik and his team will be a great political posture as the previous governments were headed by the tribal chiefs since having much expectations will plunge to disappointment.
The nature of the Balochistan issue is not as such which Dr. Abdul Malik will insightfully come up, the problem of Balochistan is not merely limited to the provincial legislation but extended faraway between the Pakistan security establishment and the separatists.
Will Dr. Abdul Malik and his team be able to make decisions which may lead to the satisfaction to the people who are disappointed from the federation?
Will Dr. Malik undertake to prove the missing persons righteous in their political ideology and will be able to get them released?
Will he be able to cross the line which the security establishment and other supreme powers of the state have drawn for the safeguard of the federation?
Likewise, there are many other miscellaneous questions which are related to the issue ofBalochistan. The above questions seem impossible to be satisfied by the provincial decision makers; it is of no importance who is heading the team.
The players involved in the balochistan game have firm belief in their political ideology and the very dogma gives no importance to the so called government in the province as it has remained a factual practice by the colonial approached federations.
So the new government will only be a throwback of the previous governments in relation to the above questions yet there remains a noteworthy position of the collation by NP, PMAP and Muslim league(N) in social perspective. It will be far better than the previous government to produce social ease to the masses but anticipating metamorphosed and overnight change will only change to nightmare.
