Gwadar: After more than a month of protests by the Gwadar people demanding their basic rights, sit-in leader Maulana Hidayat-ur-Rehman decided to cancel the protest after negotiating with the government.

Confirming the development, Balochistan Minister for Planning and Development Zahoor Buledi took to Twitter and wrote that the negotiation between the government and Balochistan secretary-general of Jamat-e-Islami Maulana Hidayat-ur-Rehman took place in the presence of the chief minister of Balochistan, Abdul Quddus Bizenjo.

“The negotiation with Maulana Hidayat Ur Rehman in the presence of CM has been successful. Govt has accepted all demands of Maulana Sb and the dharna is to be called off.”

CM Bizenjo said in a statement that all the demands of the Gwadar protesters are legal because he mentioned that the government’s priority is to provide them with growth opportunities and provide them with basic necessities.
