Speaking on that matter, the BRP leader, Bugti, said that he has held talks with the top Indian diplomats about his asylum as well as that of a number of other Baloch leaders currently staying in Balochistan, Afghanistan and in some other countries.
Earlier, Bugti was asked by the Permanent Mission of India (PMI) in Geneva to approach Embassy of India in Bern, Switzerland for the asylum request. In respect to which, the Baloch leader said, “There’s heavy deployment of Army & FC in Quetta. It’s impossible for our political parties to carry out activities openly. People are frustrated; nobody wants to stay with Pakistan. There are just few people who’ve been threatened or bribed to stay with government.”
