Karachi (Web Desk): National Party chief Senator Mir Hasil Khan Bizenjo on Thursday passed away in Karachi at the age of 62.
Bizenjo had reportedly been battling lung cancer for the past few months and admitted to Aga Khan Hospital in a critical condition in the morning.
Bizenjo served as the Minister for Maritime Affairs in Shahid Khaqan Abbasi's cabinet from 2017 to 2018.
Bizenjo had remained a consistent ally of PML-N at the Centre as well as in Balochistan since it struck a coalition deal with the party after the 2013 polls.
Senator Bizinjo was born into a family that has played a significant role in Balochistan’s politics.
His father Mir Ghous Baksh Bizenjo, who also served as Governor of Balochistan, was a nationalist leader known for his peaceful struggle to attain Baloch people’s rights within the framework of Pakistan.
