Speaking to the journalists during a press conference here in Quetta, the leaders of BSAC said its new leadership will be elected during the council session in March. They said the council session will be dedicated to organisation’s former vice chairman Feroz Baloch and “martyred” professor Razaq Baloch.

BSAC was formed by students of Balochistan University of Information and Engineering Technology in 2009 and has been campaigning for student rights ever since. It is currently considered one of the main student organisations of Balochistan. It also has units outside Balochistan.
The spokesperson of the organisation during the press conference said, “due to the earnest endeavours of BSAC’s members, the organisation is now active not only in Balochistan but other parts of the Pakistan. We believe the issues of students are not limited to Balochistan only but are prevalent in other parts of the country too. The organisation now has 13 zones and several units.”
He said that the organisation has a clear objective to campaign for the rights of students and guide them in the educational institutions.
