Balochistan's problem is that, they dont have a "Mujib" to lead them. In fact their situation is worse than what we had pre 71. Resource wise, they are much more deprived than we were. baluchistan is the provider of 90% Gas and 70% electricity, Coal, Minerals, etc etc for entire Pakistan.

Interesting that Punjab enjoys most of their gas & ellectricity from Baluchistan, but in crisis period stops supply of food stuff to all other provinces including Balochistan to meet their internal needs, thus forcing a price hike but Baloch cant stop their supplies, due to heavy presence of Military. They are virtually ruled by Punjab.
