    He hasn’t done anything for the players of quetta, he is good only with his hazara community….

      Your racist comment should have been followed with a single example as well. All those stadiums he built during his term are all out of Quetta. The majority of Hazara community does exclusively live in Quetta which have been deprived of Ayub stadium due to security concerns.
