QUETTA: Chief Minister Balochistan, Dr Abdul Malik Baloch has said coordination and understanding between his government, frontier corps and intelligence agencies has improved in terms of maintaining law and order in the restive province.
Dr Baloch visited the residence of his advisor and member Balochistan Assembly, Mir Majid Abro and inquired about his condition on Sunday evening.
Abro was injured in a blast on Saturday when his vehicle was targeted through a remote controlled device in Quetta's Western Bypass area.
"Better coordination between elected government and security agencies have resulted in improvement of law and order," Dr Baloch said.
Dr Baloch's predecessor Nawab Aslam Raisani, the former chief minister Balochistan, had repeatedly stated that frontier corps had established a parallel government in the province.
He however dispelled the impression regarding backdoor negotiations with armed militant groups operating in the province for the sake of peace.
"No back-door diplomacy is underway," the chief minister explained.
He expressed the determination that all out efforts would be made to give peace for the future generation of the troubled province.
When asked about political parties' proposed sit-in outside the parliament, Dr Baloch said a delegation of political parties was scheduled to meet the Governor Balochistan prior to leaving for Islamabad.
He moreover stated that the proposed All Parties Conference regarding Balochistan would be discussed in the assembly session on January 9.
"We strive to sort out issues through political means," he added.
The chief minister said past mistakes would not be repeated since all coalition partners in his government stand for a peaceful and developed Balochistan.
In response to a question, he said the country was faced with multiple issues as a result of repeated violations of the constitution along with military dictators' intervention in political affairs of the country.
"If I am removed no matter, we must defend democracy," he stated.
Dr Baloch said all political parties must put their heads together to promote democratic institutions in the country.
