A large number of tribals from far-flung areas of Dera Bugti and surroundings attended the public meeting.

Meanwhile, addressing a public meeting, former caretaker federal interior minister and PPP leader Sarfraz Bugti said that the PPP would form the government in Balochistan by securing a clear majority in the Feb 8 general elections.
