Owais Noorani called for establishing Balochistan as a separate state, the chief minister said in a message posted on micro-blogging site, Twitter, asking as to whose narrative they were carrying forward.
Jam kamal also lamented the PDM leadership for terming Balochistan as a small province and said that they should stop such rhetoric as all provinces of the country are equal and rather Balochistan is the biggest province of the country.
“Their remarks prove that they consider Balochistan as a small province,” he said.
Separately, Adviser to Prime Minister on Political Communication Shahbaz Gill while sharing the section 125 and 126 of the constitution on his Twitter account said that Owais Noorani and the PDM have committed a severe violation of the constitution.
“They spoke of breaking up the state,” he said and demanded of the lawyer bodies and bar councils to now come forward against it.
Shahbaz Gill further announced that they would not allow anyone to attack the country and Imran Khan would single-handedly led the fight against such elements.
