What is the reason for the anger of PML-N leader Abdul Qadir Baloch in PDM?


The Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), a political coalition of opposition parties against the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government, managed to hold a huge rally in Quetta, the capital of Balochistan, but after that rally, the main party in the PDM, the Muslim League Disagreements in N's Balochistan organization came to the fore.

Apparently, the biggest reason for these differences is the rally in Quetta. After this rally, PML-N Balochistan President General (retd) Abdul Qadir Baloch has decided to resign from the party and the party presidency. ۔

Why PDM Quetta meeting caused General Qadir Baloch's anger?

Although some observers say that since General Qadir is a former soldier, he is angry at PML-N leader Mian Nawaz Sharif's criticism of the army's top leadership, which led to his decision to leave the party. What

Prince Zulfiqar, a journalist and senior analyst from Balochistan, said that the main reason for Gen (retd) Abdul Qadir's anger was the meeting of former PML-N president and former chief minister Nawab Sanaullah Zehri at the PDM's meeting in Quetta. There was no invitation to participate in public.

He said that Nawab Sanaullah Zehri was in Dubai. He was told by General Qadir that a meeting was being held in Quetta so he should come to attend it.

Prince Zulfiqar says that Sardar Akhtar Mengal, head of the Balochistan National Party (BNP), the main party from Balochistan in the PDM, had made it clear that in the event of Nawab Sanaullah Zehri's participation, the BNP leadership and workers would hold a meeting. I will not participate.

He said that in case of non-participation of BNP, not only the meeting could have been affected but also the government could have used this situation against the PDM.

It is to be noted that Akhtar Mengal was an ally in the PTI government but this year he had separated from the ruling coalition due to non-fulfillment of promises made to him by the federal government.

Prince Zulfiqar said that perhaps to prevent the situation from escalating and affecting the meeting, the PML-N leadership barred Nawab Sanaullah Zehri from attending the meeting, which angered General (retd) Qadir Baloch.

Senior analyst Saleem Shahid also thinks that this is one of the main reasons for the anger of General (retd) Qadir Baloch.

He said that the absence of Sardar Akhtar Mengal and his party was likely to spoil the meeting, so the central leadership of the PML-N thought that Nawab Sanaullah Zehri should not come to the meeting.

"Since General Qadir is a former soldier, I may be angry with the remarks of the PML-N leader and other leaders about some army officials," he said.

Why Balochistan National Party was not ready to participate in Nawab Sanaullah Zehri?

Balochistan National Party chief Sardar Akhtar Mengal and Nawab Sanaullah Zehri have not only political differences but also tribal differences between each other's families for a long time.

The short time that Nawab Sanaullah Zehri and Sardar Akhtar Mengal stayed together on a political platform was before the general elections in 1997 when the Pakistan National Party and the Balochistan National Movement (Mengal) merged into the Balochistan National Party.

However, after the break-up of the BNP, not only did Sardar Akhtar Mengal and Nawab Sanaullah remain politically at odds with each other, but in early 2018, the BNP filed a no-confidence motion to remove Nawab Sanaullah Zehri as Chief Minister. It was supported.

However, differences between the BNP and Nawab Sanaullah Zehri escalated when the assassination of BNP leader Nawabzada Amanullah Zehri took place in 2019. Nawab Amanullah Zehri belonged not only to the Nawab family of the Zehri tribe but he was also the uncle of Nawab Sanaullah Zehri.

The BNP had blamed Nawab Sanaullah Zehri and his other close relatives for the murder of Nawabzada Amanullah Zehri. Was acquitted

Nawab Sanaullah Zehri joined PML-N before the 2013 general elections. He was later elected PML-N Balochistan president, while Nawab Sanaullah Zehri became PML-N chief minister after the expiration of former chief minister Dr Malik Baloch's term as chief minister under the Murree Accord.

According to some political observers, although Nawab Sanaullah Zehri became the Chief Minister because of the PML-N, when the PML-N faced a difficult time after the fall of the government, Nawab Sanaullah Zehri became inactive.

After the removal of the Chief Minister, he resigned from the post of PML-N provincial president. Before the 2018 general elections, his brother Nematullah Zehri joined the PTI, while his close relative and former chairman District Council Khuzdar Agha Shakeel Durrani joined the Balochistan Awami Party.
