QUETTA  : Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan has said previous government received $35 billion in the form of foreign assistance and investment but people of Balochistan still remained deprived of water, infrastructure and development.

“The financial crisis we are witnessing today basically emerged due to flawed policies of our predecessors. They had more power and resources than we have at present,” Kamal said while addressing a gathering of tribal elders in Dera Murad Jamali on Sunday.

The minister said being sons of this soil, the provincial cabinet members have been making earnest efforts to provide relief to the people of Balochistan. The CM highlighted that during the first four months of the provincial government he personally visited all districts to review the ground situation.

Kamal said: “Today the cabinet members are fully aware of people’s woes and have been raising those issues at all forums. At the provincial level measures are being taken to provide immediate relief to the downtrodden people”.

Provincial development key priority in CPEC, CM assured

Home Minister Mir Saleem Khosa, Adviser to CM for Education Muhammad Khan Lehri, provincial Minister Nawabzada Tariq Magsi, MNA Nawabzada Khalid Khan Magsi, MPA Umar Khan Jamali, MPA Mir Sikandar Khan Umrani and government officials were present.

The CM said the incumbent government has set a direction to address public issues. Moreover, he assured that public issues in Naseerabad division would be addressed on priority basis.

“We have formed a committee headed by elected MPAs for land allotment in Naseerabad while preparations were underway to give land ownership to the residents of the division,” said Kamal.

On water dispute with Sindh, Kamal said the government of Balochistan has vowed to hold direct talks with Sindh government. He expressed confidence that the dispute with Sindh would be resolved in coming weeks.

“We know Naseerabad has been facing electricity and gas crisis and the provincial government would take up the issue with Centre,” the CM, said adding that steps were being taken to provide direct relief to the masses. This, he said, would increase public trust on Balochistan Awami Party-led government.

Talking to reporters after the meeting, Kamal said the provincial government is serious in delegating power at the grass-root level level. It would resolve public issues in their native districts, he added.

“In four months, the provincial government has achieved major goals, we have imposed emergency in health and educational sectors while 20,000 fresh appointments would be made in government departments in the near future,” the CM.

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…
