ISLAMABAD, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News – 30th Oct, 2023) Caretaker Minister for Interior, Senator Sarfraz Bugti Monday emphasized the need for negotiations to resolve ongoing sit-in outside the Parliament, led by the political party BNP-M and civil society members.

Speaking here at the Senate, he said that while the BNP-M had initially been granted permission for a press conference and a token protest at the Islamabad Press Club, adding they subsequently moved their demonstration to the Red Zone, where they continued to stage their sit-in.

Bugti underscored the prominent role of seasoned Politician Akhtar Khan Mengal in the protest, considering his party’s involvement in various governmental capacities over the last decade.

Senator Raza Rabbani, addressing the issue during the Senate session, highlighted the protesters’ concerns, particularly regarding the chronic problem of missing persons and alleged death squads operating in Balochistan.

Rabbani emphasized the need for swift action to put an end to such issues, suggesting that Parliament should address the matter through legislative means.

Furthermore, he brought attention to the recent appointments made by the Caretaker government in various key institutions, including NAB, NADRA and now in Federal Government Services Hospital (Poly Clinic), and Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS).

He criticized the appointments, urging the caretaker government to focus on crucial daily affairs instead.
