“Pashtuns had been suffering worst because of discriminative treatment and measures adopted by the state and government institutions in Baluchistan,” ANP provincial president for Baluchistan, Sardar Asghar Khan Achakzai said.

It comes at a time when political parties in Pakistan have been organizing their party structures and wings and holding workers gatherings to reach power corridor in Pakistan, after conducting general elections in 2018. However, the country had worse record of free and fair elections where human rights violation is a matter of day to day. Pakistan’s security establishment continuously had its tight control over the electoral process of the country and always succeeded in achieving controlled and designed results in each and every constituency across Pakistan.
