Poor governance, corruption reasons for Balochistan's backwardness: PM Pakistan


Wed, Dec, 18

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan Wednesday said the Balochistan province was gifted with natural resources, but lack of good governance and mismanagement on the part of previous governments, resulted in its backwardness.

He was talking to a group of students of the Cadet College Qilla Saifullah here.

The situation in Balochistan and other issues, including education, were discussed during the interaction.

Minister for Defence Production Zubaida Jalal was also present, PM Office media wing said in a press release.

The Prime Minister referred to the Riasat-e-Madina and the Caliphate, saying the Muslims, despite limited resources, led the world by emulating the golden principles laid down by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him).

He also cited Switzerland, which had limited resources, but due to good governance, had left many other European countries behind in the realm of progress and prosperity.

Corruption was the reason for backwardness of the people of Balochistan, he added.

He enumerated that for evolution of a society, rule of law, justice, compact system to support the down-trodden, and promotion of education, were of most significance.

The Prime Minister also underlined the importance and role of education as the main tool for the progress and prosperity of a nation.

He stressed upon the students to fully concentrate their energies on getting education.

With regard to social and economic situation in the province, the Prime Minister regretted that in the past, there were different sets of law for the powerful and the feeble.

The province, he said, also witnessed large scale corruption in the funds allocated for its the development.

The province mired into backwardness as the development funds were not transferred to the grassroots level, he added.

The Prime Minister maintained that the present government was different from the previous regimes in its approach to the issues.

Under the new local government system, development funds would be transferred to the village level, so that their utilization should be ensured correctly in accordance with the needs of the local populace.

He termed the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) a brilliant project for progress and prosperity of Balochistan.

He said the government was fully cognizant of the serious water situation in the province, and emphasized upon its judicious usage, besides formulation of a comprehensive strategy and introduction of the latest technology to overcome the issue.

Short, medium and long term strategies were afoot in that connection, he added.

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.

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.

Just 10 years ago, regular direct freight services from China to Europe did not exist.2 Today, they connect roughly 35 Chinese…
