New Delhi: Exiled Baloch leader Brahumdagh Bugti, who yesterday said that he had decided to request India for asylum, on Tuesday approached Permanent Mission of India in Geneva for filing his asylum papers. 

Brahumdagh has been asked by the Permanent Mission of India, Geneva to approach Embassy of India in Bern, Switzerland for the same.

Thanking India, Brahumdagh said, “This is a great step that Indian Government took a stand for Balochistan. If Pakistan government is saying everything is fine in Balochistan, then why don’t they let people go there? There’s a war-like situation.”



Brahumdagh also 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.”

“In Balochistan, whichever government assumes office, there’s no opposition … this just shows, there’s a core commander and he dominates. Chief Minister is there just for show,” Brahumdagh added.
