Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari on Friday warned people of Balochistan against “being used by the enemy.”
Addressing a gathering in Jaffrabad district of Balochistan for the 50th death anniversary of Jafar Khan Jamali, the former president asked people to be wary of the enemy’s designs. However, Zardari did not name who the enemy is.
“Do not allow yourselves to be used,” he added.
Zardari further asked the people of the province to reject separatist elements as “they’ve only caused destruction”. “You have the resources and the land, why do you allow yourself to be exploited by the enemy,” Zardari questioned.
“Do we want to live in India in the same conditions and even be punished for eating beef,” Zardari asked and added that it is the narrow mindedness which is resulting in mistreatment to Kashmiri women [in Indian held Kashmir].
He also said that China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) will bear fruits for the province but some people are being misguided on the project.
Addressing New Delhi’s threats to halt the water supply to Pakistan, the former president said, “India threatens to stop our water, but it will never succeed in doing so.” I will introduce a system of drip irrigation in the province which will utilise an acre of land with just 300 gallons of water instead of 10,000 gallons.
