Imran earlier arrived in Karachi for a daylong visit during, which he held important meetings with different political representatives from Sindh.

Minister for Planning Khusro Bakhtiar, Minister for Water Resources Faisal Vawda, Minister for Parliamentary Affairs Azam Swati and former Finance Minister Asad Umer were also present on the occasion.

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government stood by its commitment and would help resolve the issues of water scarcity, inadequate waste management, poor transportation and others for good, he added.

Imran Khan said quality life, security and proper means of livelihood were the basic rights of every citizen that could be materialised through meaningful efforts along with coordination among all the stakeholders.

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 .
