Setting up a cadet college in place of Sui Cantonment is a welcome step. It is a fact that Balochistan could not get much attention in the past which created a deep sense of deprivation there. Every government claimed for removing grievances of the people but they all proved just a hollow rhetoric. In Musharraf era, the trust deficit declined sharply. Consequently, some hidden forces while exploiting woes and miseries of the people further fuelled the fire. They supplied weapons and resources to create unrest in the province. They have succeeded to an extent in achieving their objectives with the help of some local elements. Target killing is a routine matter there. Many Pubjabis have been forced to leave the province. Many Balochis themselves acknowledge services rendered by the Pubjabis in the field of education and other areas. Unfortunately, the provincial government also failed to deliver. Police and other provincial institutions are not working well. In this backdrop, the Pakistan army under the leadership of General Kayani, is trying hard to remove the grievances of the locals. They are not only trying to maintain law and order but also taking part in development and relief projects. The Chamalangh coal mine project is being supervised by the army. Local people are getting benefits in the shape of money, development and education vis--vis employment. Trust deficit is declining rapidly. Army has very much turned the tide there. In the history of Balochsitan, it is for the first time that about four thousand young Baloch men have joined Pakistan army to serve the nation. The good thing is that efforts are being made to induct more and more Baloch. Similarly, many education and development projects have been completed with the help of army. Currently, 3,500 Baloch youth are being imparted technical training while another 1700 are being trained by the army. Chief Minister Raisani rightly said that it is not gun, but pen that could remove the prevailing trust deficit. The establishment of Cadet College is major step in this regard. IBNE SHAMSI, Rawalpindi
