Pakistan People's Party Chairperson has foreseen that a jiyala, (PPP worker)  will be the chief minister of Balochistan after next election, 24NewsHD TV channel report.

No one can stop the PPP from making its government if the people of Balochistan stand by it, Bilawal said in his address to a public gathering in Quetta on Sunday.

Two key PML-N figures – former chief minister of Balochistan Sanaullah Zehri and former federal minister Abdul Qadir Baloch – announced joining the PPP.

The PPP chairperson expressed his gratitude to the local leadership and the people for reposing trust in the PPP and giving him warm welcome.

He said the Balochistan people and the PPP have been enjoying cordial ties for the past three generations. 

He listed PPP feats like 18th Amendment a milestone attained in the PPP rule under President Asif Ali Zardari. He said his party gave the federating units their due right and share under the NFC award.

He vowed to continue with the mission to provide the people their due share in state resources and guarding their rights. 

He promised the Balochistan's problems will be fixed at all costs as the party will reach out to every corner of the province so that the Balochs could be provide with facilities at their doorsteps.

He slammed the government saying that the PTI is incapable due to which a sense of deprivation has been prevailing everywhere.

The PTI government has did nothing but to make the people jobless and increase inflation.

The change of PTI has been exposed to everyone. 

I have also become a jiyala, says ex-CM 

In his address, former Baluchistan CM Sanaullah Zehri said former premier Nawaz Sharif lacked loyalty.

"We stood by Nawaz Sharif in critical situation and established the PML-N government in the province for the sake of self-respect as Balochs want so. But the ex-premier brought shame to them, making the local leadership leave the PML-N," he said.

"Ghulam Ishaq Khan was the first victim of Nawaz Sharif's disloyalty," he recalled.

However, he expressed hope PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari will come up to the expectation of Balochs. He said he want to see Bilawal Bhutto as next premier of the country and recalled his father was a PPP worker and he too became a 'jiyala' .

Adbul Qadir heaps praise on PPP leadership 

Abdul Qadir Baloch said he said goodbye to the PML-N that has no key political figure from the province. 

He heaped praise on the PPP saying that the party provided the province with its due share during its previous terms.

"The PPP has hard workers and Balochistan needs the party leadership and its workers to get removed the prevailing sense of deprivation and make the province a strong federating unit.  He said the PPP will have a dozen seats in the province.
