‘Citizenship rights to Afghan refugees in Balochistan is unwise’, said MP Sana-ullah Baloch.

According to TBP’s social media reporter, former senator and current member of Balochistan legislative assembly Sanaullah Baloch in a tweet has expressed his concerns on the decision concerning grant of citizenship rights to Afghan refugees in Balochistan by Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan.

Sana Baloch in a Tweet said that “decision concerning citizenship to refugees is unwise and immature. Pakistan is a federation, decisions which are directly linked and effects province’s demographic, social, economic and security matters are decided through dialog and consultation”.

Sana Baloch is a central committee member of Balochistan National Party-Mengal (BNP-M), a nationalist party in Balochistan.

A Memorandum of Understanding had been signed in August in a meeting that was held between the leadership of BNP-Mengal and PTI the ruling party of Pakistan, in Quetta, where the Vice Chairman of PTI (Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf), Shah Mehmood Qureshi, and the president of BNP-M Sardar, Akhtar Mengal signed the MOU.

In a press conference, both leaders had confirmed the agreement between two parties, according to which, BNP-M will support PTI in government formation in the centre and in return, PTI will agree to the demands of BNP’s six points.

BNP had claimed that Six points, on which the PTI agreed, were the only demands that BNP-M made from the upcoming central government and no ministries were asked in the return.

One of those six points was to send back the Afghan refugees, residing in Balochistan.
