Relief being provided to Balochistan’s drought-hit areas

Saleem ShahidJanuary 26, 2019

QUETTA: Balochistan Home Minister Mir Ziaullah Langove has said that the provincial government is doing its best to minimise effects of drought in 19 districts of the province and provide relief to those hit by the calamity.

Mr Langove, who also holds the portfolio of the chief of the Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA), said this at the PDMA headquarters on Friday. Provincial Minister for Livestock Mitha Khan Kakar, MPA Nawabzada Gohram Bugti, PTI leader Sardar Khan Rind, MPA Younis Zehri and MMA’s Asghar Ali Tareen were also present.

Mr Langove said that the long dry-spell and climate change had affected the entire province and every district was facing a drought-like situation.

“The national and provincial disaster management authorities are working to control the effects of drought,” he said, adding that he attended the National Workshop on Drought last week in Islamabad, wherein a strong case of Balochistan drought was presented.


PDMA Director General Imran Zarkoon briefed the home minister and his delegation on the relief operations launched in drought-hit areas. The home minister and other members of the delegation took a round of the headquarters and urged the PDMA to utilise all resource for providing relief to people. They said no excuses would be tolerated.

Meanwhile, Mr Langove visited the IG Office where IG Police Mohsin Hassan Butt and DIG Abdul Razzaq Cheema briefed him on the law and order situation.

The provincial government follows zero-tolerance policy towards law, while law enforcement agencies have been directed to beef-up monitoring in bordering towns to prevent movement of terrorists, Mr Langove 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…
