DERA GHAZI KHAN: Balochistan National Party-Mengal chief Sardar Akhtar Mengal demanded that Dera Ghazi Khan and Rajanpur be added to Balochistan. He was addressing a public gathering organised in the memory of martyrs of Koh-e-Sulaiman at Taunsa Sharif on Sunday. Mengal said that at the time of partition, Dera Ghazi Khan and Rajanpur were parts of Balochistan but later they were included in Punjab. He said that Balochistan comprises 43% of total area of Pakistan but was the smallest in terms of population. The BNP-M chief declared that he was not supporting the government in greed for any post or ministry but was looking forward to his six-point agenda. He claimed that the abducted women from Awaran were only released after he protested over their going missing. He said that it was not just a coincidence that every ruler apologised for mistreatment with Balochistan. He demanded the Punjab chief minister conduct an inquiry into the killing of two persons in Dera Ghazi Khan two months back in a police encounter.
