These sardars sell land and also people

 In 1883, the Khan of Kalat sold the Quetta district and adjoining territories to the British government.  Alongside the land, it was also an outright sale of the people, like a herd of cattle. Heirs of Khan of Kalat were also obliged to adhere to this hire purchase arrangement. He received an annual grant of Rs. 25000 for selling the most attractive part of Balochistan to the British government. Sardar Mehrulla Marri sold all mineral and petroleum rights of Khatan region to the British government in 1885 for a paltry sum of Rs. 200 per month. Again there was no time limit to this agreement, it was in perpetuity. In the same year, the British government paid Rs. 5500 to the Bugti Sardar for his cooperation although it was not specified as to what kind of cooperation he extended to the British government.

Beware, my dear common poor baloch brothers and sisters. Now Gawadhar is for sale, Khan Kalat is in secret talks with Pustoon leaders. We must unite and fight these Nawabs, sardars.
