QUETTA - The Provincial Assembly members of Balochistan have said that creation of new provinces in the prevailing situation will be dangerous for the country. They expressed these views in the session of Balochistan Assembly which met on Thursday with Member Panel of Chairmen Mir Abdul Rehman Jamali in the chair about 30 minutes late from its fixed schedule. Speaking on a point of order, Balochistan Minister for Health and JUI-F leader Aainullah Shams said this was a serious issue and there should be serious dialogue for creation of new provinces. He said situation of Bhawalpur was different as people of Bahawalpur had been making demand for restoration their province through an executive order. He said a committee of all political parties should be formed and ,added, that this committee should be assigned task to find out solution to demands for new provinces including restoration of Bahawalpur province. Responding to him, the chair said that history tells us that Bahawalpur remained a province before its merger. Sheikh Jaffar Mandokhail, leader of PML-Q said debate for demarcation of new province in Punjab and restoration of Bahawalpur province continued at national level. He said movement for demarcation of new provinces in Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Sindh would strengthen if Seraiki province was formed. 'Debate on demarcation of new provinces should be closed, he said ,adding, that the issue of formation of new provinces was politically motivated and Sindh might suffer if the debate continued. However, Mandokhel said if Seraiki areas were backward then Federal and Punjab governments should address their grievances and should pay more attention to solve their problems. Captain (Retd) Abdul Khaliq Achakzai of PML-N said demarcation of new provinces on linguistic basis would be dangerous as the country was already passing through crisis and difficulties. He, however, said that his party supported formation of new provinces on administrative basis. Meanwhile, the legislators expressed their anger over loadshedding and power outages throughout the province. Speaking on a point of order, Provincial Minister for Balochistan Coastal Development Authority Zahoor Baloch said recently Pakistani government had made a deal of purchasing more electricity from Iran for Mekran division of Balochistan but so far no practical steps had been taken in this connection. He said that long hours of loadshedding had made the life of people difficult in Ramazan as only 4 to 6 hours electricity was being provided to the people in Mekran division which was not enough. He asked government to take up this issue with concerned officials and ensure smooth provision of electricity to the people. Other MPAs, including Qambar Gichki, Ali Madad Jattak, Jaffar Khan Mandokhel and Habib-ur-Rehman Muhammad Hasani criticised QESCO for unscheduled loadshedding. They said owing to loadshedding the people were deprived of drinking water. 'Now the people from every nook and corner of the province are only demanding for electricity because without electricity they even cant get drinking water, they added. The lawmakers also showed serious concern over the deteriorating law and order situation of the province, saying that innocent people were being killed, decomposed bodies were being thrown and incidents of kidnapping for ransom were on the rise but the law-enforcement agencies were not taking steps to improve the law and order. They asked the government to convene All Parties Conference so that all issues could be discussed. Meanwhile, the House approved 'The Prisons (Balochistan Amendment) Bill, 2011 and 'The Prisoners (Balochistan Amendment) Bill, 2011 unanimously. Balochistan Minister for Jails Sultan Muhammad Tareen tabled both the bills. After approval of the bills the chair adjourned the session till Saturday (tomorrow).
