Quetta: Aslam Bhutani, Member of Pakistan Assembly, speaking in a joint session of the Pakistan assembly said that the people of Balochistan are being humiliated in the name of CPEC.

He said that the 45,000 acres of land in District Hub and Lasbela areas of Balochistan was given to a foreign based cement factory without any notification. 

Bhutani further said that he is against terrorism but when we jump into the war of another superpower, the other party will not present garlands to us.

He said that the people of Balochistan have suffered a lot and when they demand their rights, they are called traitors.

Balochistan is rich in resources but the benefit of those resources is not being given to the Baloch people.

He said that CPEC cannot run against the will of the Baloch people and projects like Recodiq, Gwadar, etc are against the will of the local people.

China–Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is a 3000 km Chinese infrastructure network project undertaken in Pakistan amid resistance in Balochistan region.
