QUETTA: Chief Minister Dr. Abdul Malik Baloch has said that Pakistan is a democratic country and there is no threat of dictatorship after the 18 Amendment in the Constitution as it was first demanded by Balochistan.

He expressed his views while addressing a conference about right to information in law organized by CPD where Provincial Information Minister Raheem Ziaratwal, MPA Balochistan Assembly Spozmi, Provincial Home Secretary Akbar Hussain Durrani and other officials were present at the conference.

“In the past, negligence was showed for legislation about the authority which was shifted to provinces from the federal Government but present government is making serious measures in this context,” CM Balochistan added.

He advised members of house to bring resolutions relating right to information in law which is basic right of the people and they are their representatives which will help to gain trust on them as it is indispensable.

Dr Abdul Malik Baloch said that they believe in honesty and transparency rather than hiding any issue from people as right to information in law is basic right of people and a long struggle was made for democracy and sovereignty of people and freedom of expression and Press.

“A committee is formed to collect recommendations for right to information act under the leadership of Provincial Information Minister Raheem Ziaratwal,” CM Balochistan announced and said that recommendations should be gathered before the next assembly session and a bill will be presented soon in assembly to block the obstacles in right to information in law.
