The new chief minister of Balochistan – Dr Abdul Malik – will have to face another doctor of his province – Dr Allah Nazar – who is said to be leading the Balochistan Liberation Front. Like Dr Malik, Dr Nazar also belongs to the middle class and enjoys a huge following among the educated Baloch, especially the youth.
Both Dr Allah Nazar and Dr Malik got their MBBS degrees from the same institution – the Bolan Medical College – and perhaps they know each other personally. Both started politics from a common platform: the Baloch Students Organisation. Will the new CM come out victorious in the face-off between the two doctors?
