ISLAMABAD - The senators from Balochistan Thursday walked out from the Upper House of the Parliament in a protest against, what they called, the indifferent behaviour of the Central government towards the province in terms of developmental work. The senators alleged that the government was not interested at all in the development of Balochistan and that the funds allocated for rehabilitation of roads infrastructure in the province were shifted to other provinces for one reason or the other. Levelling allegations of same nature on the federal government, the JUI-F Senator Dr Khalid Sumroo from Sindh province also joined the walkout. During the question-hour session, Minister for Communication Dr Arbab Alamgir told the Senate that various projects including Quetta-Qalat Road were being abandoned by National Highway Authority for worsening law and order situation in Balochistan. However, the senators from Balochistan termed the statement of Dr Arbab as a lame excuse. Later following the direction of Chairman Senate, Leader of the House in Senate Nayyar Bokhari and ANP Senator Zahid Khan managed to bring Balochistan senators back except Senator Dr Abdul Malik Baloch. Meanwhile, various senators expressed their dissatisfaction over the allocations for education sector for fiscal year 2010-11. To a question Minister for Education Sardar Aseff Ahmed Ali told that for the current fiscal year Rs138.966b were allocated for education sector by federal, provincial and area governments. He said Federal Ministry of Education had allocated Rs 9.387 billion. The Govts of Punjab, Sindh, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan allocated Rs 30.836 billion, Rs 23.310 billion, Rs 40.767 billion and Rs18.758b respectively. While the govets of FATA, Gilgit-Baltistan and AJK fixed Rs 7.161 billion, Rs1.925b and Rs6.822b respectively for education sector for the current fiscal year. Sardar Assef said UNESCO suggested the allocations for education sector should be 4 to 6 per cent of gross domestic product of a country, however in Pakistan it was 2pc of the GDP. On that senator Akhtar Haroon told that Sardar Assef had produced wrong figures as the federal govt fixed only 0.8pc of the GDP for education sector. Aseef also informed that Rs 3.9 billion had also been allocated for President's Education Sector Reforms Programme during the last three years, out of which Rs 1.04 billion had not been released so far to the provinces.
