Balochistan wants to form a new division of Gwadar and Lasbela

The Balochistan government wants to form a new division with Gwadar and Lasbela.  

Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan had asked for suggestions from the government over the possibility.

Gwadar is a part of Makran division, while Lasbela belongs to Kalat division.

It was being speculated the chief minister will announce the formation of the division during his next visit to Gwadar.

However, the plans have not gone down well with the opposition.

National Party President Senator Hazil Bizenjo said that Gwadar is a historical part of the Makran division. “Separating Gwadar from Makran division will be akin to rejecting its history,” he remarked.

He said that forming a division with Gwadar and Lasbela will be a hard task given the distance between the two districts.

Both districts have their own historical significance, he said. The move will prove to be unjust for the people living there.

Bizenjo said that this is not the first time such a suggestion has been made. “The conspiracy to separate Gwadar from Makran division was hatched before, but the people had protested.”

Balochistan former chief minister Abdul Maalik Baloch has labelled the division a ‘conspiracy’.

He was giving a lecture on the history of Balochistan at Turbat University.

The conspiracy seeks to hand over the control of Balochistan’s coastal belt to the federal government, he said.

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…
