QUETTA   -   Provincial legislators on Thursday rejected the proposal of reducing provinces share in NFC Award by adjudicating it to be against the 1973 Constitution and the 18th Amendment. These views were expressed by lawmaker Nasrullah Khan Zahri in Balochistan Assembly’s session which was presided over by Deputy Speaker Sardar Babar Musa Khel here on Thursday.  Moving an adjournment motion regarding a proposal to reduce Balochistan’s shares in NFC award, MPA Nasrullah Khan Zahri said that the provincial government needs to take effective measures to overcome financial crisis.
