Pakistan Peoples Party co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari on Friday voiced fears that if atrocities continued in Balochistan, the state would also lose the elders of the province after its youth.

Addressing a political gathering organised by PPP, Zardari said that he loved Balochistan as much as he loved his country Pakistan.

“I got recognition from Sindh but I am included among Balochis,” he said.

Zardari said that Balochis had committed a mistake by going into the mountains in rebellion. He urged the people of Balochistan not to be used or exploited.

Stating that there were valuable opportunities in Balochistan for investment, Zardari said that some people had misconceptions about the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

“The CPEC project belongs to all of Pakistan,” said Zardari.

Zardari further said that Pakistanis had not presented their politics in Balochistan the right way. He stated that if atrocities in the province were not stopped, the elders of the province would also become dejected with the state just like the youth.

The former President spoke out against the atrocities being committed against Muslims in India. He said that India was misleading the friends of Pakistan.

“There is no limit to injustice in India,” he said. “You should see what conditions Muslims are living in India,” he added.

Zardari said that Balochistan was blessed with gold, silver and natural resources. He further stated that China was ready to come to Pakistan.
