QUETTA: Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan Alyani has proposed reconstruction of Pasni Fish Harbour with all modern facilities at some other place in the area to protect rights of fishermen of the area as the present harbour cannot be made functional.

Presiding over a meeting to review performance of Pasni Fish Harbour, he said the government would definitely make all those government institutions functional which were at present not functioning.

The secretary of fisheries and the managing director of Pasni Fish Harbour, Ali Gul Kurd, briefed the meeting on the harbour. The meeting reviewed to use the grant of Japan for the development of Pasni Fish Harbour.

It also reviewed a plan to construct eight new jetties in coastal areas of Makran and directed the Board of Revenue to complete the process of providing land for the purpose.


Speaking on the occasion, the chief minister expressed anger over non-functioning of Pasni Fish Harbour for the last 10 years, but an amount of Rs1.5 billion was spent on payment of salary to employees and staff of the harbour.

He said heads of a majority of government departments and institutions were non-serious about running their departments and institutions and he had reached that conclusion after reviewing the performance of these departments and institutions over the last five months.

Mr Alyani said that fish harbours and jetties across the world not only provided jobs to people, but also strengthened local economies. But unfortunately in Balochistan the situation was different and these institutions and departments were not playing effective role in providing jobs to people and strengthening the economy of the province, he added.

The chief minister directed authorities concerned to consider running all harbours and jetties of coastal areas of the province under an authority and through public-private partnership and advertise the plan in newspapers to attract interested investors.

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 .
