Stance

 

Balochistan National Party is a strong proponent of Provincial autonomy and Baloch nationalism. The party advocates Provincial control over natural resources. It considers that Balochi people have been denied their due rights within the Federation. It also believes that the ‘system’ in vogue lacks accountability, and therefore needs reform.
