Pro-independent Baloch least interested in Nadra ID cards

Occupied Baluchistan, Baloch pro-independence parties and their supporters in Balochistan have declined to obtain National Database and Registration Authority (Nadra) identity cards, saying they were no more interested in being called Pakistani citizens, reported a Pakistani newspaper here Tuesday.

The supporters of liberation struggle in Dera Bugti, Kohlu, Washuq and elsewhere resisted Nadra mobile teams’ efforts to distribute ID card forms and recently they abducted the authority’s mobile van along with some staffers.

Owing to least interest of the local population in various districts and localities; Nadra’s average coverage was very low as compared to other cities such as Quetta and many Pakhtun-inhabited areas, said a Nadra official on condition of anonymity, who recently returned to Islamabad from the troubled Baluchistan.

The Nadra staffer noted that only 35 per cent people in Dera Bugti, 40 per cent in Washuq and Jhal Magsi, and 45 per cent in Kohlu were covered by the Nadra teams, clearly indicating the locals no or low interest in obtaining ID cards.
