Raisani urges government to hand over Gwadar port’s control to Balochistan



Balochistan National Party (BNP) leader Haji Lashkari Raisani has expressed reservations over reported rollback of the 18th Constitutional Amendment and warned of stiff resistance from people of all provinces against such plot.

"Efforts are underway to reverse the 18th Amendment, which gives a little financial autonomy to provinces but these efforts and conspiracies will be resisted by people of all the provinces," he said, speaking at 'Meet the Press' program of Karachi Press Club (KPC), here on Tuesday. KPC President Ahmed Khan Malik and Secretary Maqsood Yousufi received him on his arrival. Lashkari expressed concern over growing interference in the political process and efforts to deprive people of their resources. He brushed aside the impression that provinces haven't improved their capacities to handle the devolved subjects.

"We are being told that after 18th Amendment, provinces have not built their capacity but I question how much capacity-building has been done by the Centre since creation of Pakistan," he said, asking who is responsible for the destruction of PIA, Pakistan Steel Mills, WAPDA and Pakistan Railways which remained under the federal control throughout the history.

He demanded federal government to give Gwadar Reko Diq project under provincial control. The BNP leader claimed that if Balochistan's resources are given to the people of that province, there would not be a single illiterate or unemployed person left there. He deplored that Baloch were being told these were national resources and could not be used for their development.

Questioning that if Balochistan's tribal chiefs were responsible for the backwardness of the province and turmoil, he asked, why thousands of people were killed in Karachi which is the country's largest city that also and facing the worst ever water crisis in its history despite being situated in a province where country's largest river Indus culminates.

Lashkari demanded the establishment and federal government to release hundreds of missing persons immediately. He urged that Gwadar port should be given to provincial control and small dams should be constructed in the province as it was facing worst drought of its history these days.

He requested Chief Justice of Pakistan to utilize rupees one billion deposited in the dam fund for constructing some small dams in Balochistan which is facing worst drought in its history.

Historical relationship between Kurd and Baloch.

The Kurds are the ethnical group living in a region known as Kurdistan which is divided into Iraq, Syria, Turkey and Iran. They  are struggling for an independent region since decades and they are famous for their female guerrilla fighters.        On 25 September 2017, the referendum for an independent Kurdish region  was held in Iraq with a turn out of 72 %.   On this important occasion, the historical relation between Kurd and Baloch people is worth discussing.       When it comes to history, every nation tends to find its roots and origin. Same goes with the Baloch people. The Baloch people are always curious  about  finding their roots in history. Even if you  talk to a shepherd in Balochistan, he will be curious to talk about his  tribal or ethnical roots.      The Balochs have always conveyed the history to the next generations in different mediums like poems etc. No Baloch before 20th century had written books on  history  or origin of the Baloch nation .
