ECP slammed for adding Balochistan area to Sindh in new delimitation

Abdul Wahid ShahwaniUpdated March 25, 2018

KHUZDAR: Several political parties have condemned the Election Commission of Pakistan’s (ECP) decision to add an area of Balochistan’s NA-260 constituency to a Sindh constituency under its new delimitation.

The Balochistan National Party (BNP-Mengal) called a protest in this regard in Khuzdar town on Saturday, which was attended by leaders and workers of several other political parties. The protesters carried banners and placards, and shouted slogans against the ECP’s decision, while marching on roads and streets in the town. They termed it a well thought out conspiracy against the people of the area and demanded that the ECP revisit its decision.

Leaders of various political parties, including Saifullah Shahwani of BNP-Mengal, Hafiz Adam Jumma of the Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam Fazl, Jaffar Khan Baloch of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf, Rasheed Choota, Mushtaq Ahmed Shakarni and District Council member Mir Jumma Khan Shakrani addressed the participants, and condemned the ECP’s decision to add the Darhedaro area of Balochistan’s NA-260 in the Shahdadpur area of Sindh.

Terming it a well-planned conspiracy against the people of NA-260, the political leaders said the voters of this constituency would not accept this injustice and would protest against the ECP’s decision.


They said that earlier, the election commission had tried to include the area of Karkh into Sindh. However, the deputy commissioner of Khuzdar had foiled the attempt to include the Khuzdar district’s area into Sindh.

“How it is possible that an area which was part of Balochistan in the local bodies’ elections is being shown as a part of Sindh in the National Assembly constituency,” asked Mr Shakrani.

The speakers said that the people of Khuzdar district would not accept such a decision.

The Rise of China-Europe Railways

The Rise of China-Europe RailwaysMarch 6, 2018The Dawn of a New Commercial Era?For over two millennia, technology and politics have shaped trade across the Eurasian supercontinent. The compass and domesticated camels helped the “silk routes” emerge between 200 and 400 CE, and peaceful interactions between the Han and Hellenic empires allowed overland trade to flourish. A major shift occurred in the late fifteenth century, when the invention of large ocean-going vessels and new navigation methods made maritime trade more competitive. Mercantilism and competition among Europe’s colonial powers helped pull commerce to the coastlines. Since then, commerce between Asia and Europe has traveled primarily by sea.1Against this historical backdrop, new railway services between China and Europe have emerged rapidly. Just 10 years ago, regular direct freight services from China to Europe did not exist.2 Today, they connect roughly 35 Chinese…
