PM announces 10-year development project for Balochistan

Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi Tuesday announced a ten-year equalisation package for the development of all areas of Balochistan, with an aim to bring them at par with rest of the country in terms of provision of basic utilities and facilities.

Talking to media-persons at the Governor’s House in Quetta, the prime minister said funds for the package would be shared by the federal and provincial governments equally and it would start during the current year.

He said the package including the provision of gas, education and health facilities would be initiated at the every union council of province. The provincial government had given a proposal for this package which was agreed upon by the federal government, he added.

To a query, the prime minister said the government was fully functioning and would complete its constitutional term ending in June next year after which the elections would be held on time and the democracy would move ahead.

To a question, he said, Constitution was supreme and there should be rule of law.
