Blogging Balochistan

Who is Who in Balochistan
They say that everybody has got a price. In Balochistan, many wear their price tags proudly. I would like to present the items on sale in Balochistan, waiting for potential buyers.

Items already bought and sold
This list includes;

Jam Yousuf (Chief Minister)
Yar Mohammad Rind (Federal Minister)
Ehsan shah (provincial minister)
Shoaib Nausherwani (provincial minister)
Mohammad Ali Rind (father of a provincial minister)
Zubaida Jalal (Federal minister)

For this group, the threat of getting NABed, a ministerial post, the lure of plunder potential, and ISI sponsorship did the job. They have totally associated their futures with ISI camp. They already have let go of any pretensions of representing anybody. My preferred mode for executing them will be 'letting wild dogs do their thing on these guys'.

Items ready to be bought and sold
This list includes;

Dr. hayee
Hasil Bizenjo
Akram Dashti
Dr. Malik
Zehari bros

These guys are there for the taking, if the price is right. Last time, circumstances and situations did not allow them to be part of any deal. They are waiting for those circumstances to change. This group, at least, pretends to be sincere, and speaks the language of the people. But they will bow whichever way they find the wind stronger.

the expensive items on the shelf

This is the sardar troika. Sardar Marri, Mengal, and Bugti. Money, and armed tribesmen give them enough leverage to do hard bargaining with the government. Mengal wants constitutional amendments, Marri wants autonomy, Bugti wants gas royalties.

For the first two groups, Pakistan has used carrots, and threatening the third group with sticks.

There are a few non-entities like Sherjan baloch, Mohim Khan, Dr. Yaseen, etc. but they are too insignificant in the scheme of things.

All these people are supposed to be our leaders.

Where will they lead us to??
