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.

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 .
