Dear Abhijit since u asked, let me break it to you:

A referendum was infact held in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (erstwhile NWFP) b/w 6-17 July1947, to let the people of the region decide b/w #India or #Pakistan.

292,118 votes polled,
#India got 2,874
#Pakistan got 289,244

Since I am a Baloch myself, you may consider it a lesson in history & learn why #Indian sponsored separatism in #Balochistan is a non starter:

There was no #Balochistan state in 1947.

There was no princely state or parliament representing present day #Balochistan in 1947.

#Balochistan’s area at the time of partition in 1947 consisted of

Gwadar ruled by Oman &
5 units of Balochistan Agency:

1-British Chief Commissioner’s Balochistan
2-Princely State Of Kharan
3-Princely State Of Lasbela
4-Princely State Of Makran
5-Princely State Of Kalat
