QUETTA: PPP chairperson Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari and PML-N vice president Maryam Nawaz along with other leaders of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) are scheduled to pay their visit to the Machh incident victims today.

The incident took place last week when  11 colliers were killed and four others seriously injured after armed men opened fire at them at the Machh coalfield in Balochistan’s Bolan district.

The PML-N confirmed Maryam Nawaz will be visiting Quetta with other senior leaders of the party whereas Bilawal will be accompanied by Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah to the Quetta visit.

Meanwhile, a delegation of the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F) will also leave Islamabad for Quetta today to show solidarity with the Hazara community.

The delegation will convey Maulana Fazlur Rehman’s condolence message to the Hazara community members.

A day earlier, Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal had visited the protest camp of the Hazara families and urged them to bury the slain coal miners.

He had appealed to let go of the condition that they will only do so if Prime Minister Imran Khan visits them.
