Due to the efforts of FC, the back of terrorists in Dera Bugti and surrounding areas had been broken and with the cooperation of people, the rest of the militants would also be eliminated, he added.
On the occasion, more than 20 rebels also surrendered to the security forces, who were handed over the national flag by the home minister.
Bugti offered the self-exiled Baloch persons living abroad to join the national mainstream as they would be welcomed, otherwise they would be eliminated.
