Gwadar port to make Pakistan region’s economic hub: Buzdar



GWADAR: Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar has said that Gwadar port will play a vital role in making Pakistan an economic hub of the region.

He expressed these views during a visit, along with Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan Alyani, to Gwadar port on Wednesday.

Earlier, Mr Buzdar arrived in Turbat on a daylong visit to Makran. The Balochistan chief minister, provincial ministers, Chief Secretary Fazeel Asghar and other senior officials welcomed him at Turbat airport.

Additional Chief Secre­t­a­­ry Planning and Devel­op­ment Abdul Rehman Buz­dar and Chair­man of the Gwadar Port Authority Naseer Ahmed Kashani briefed the Punjab chief minister about Gwadar port and other projects launched in the port city under the China-Pakis­tan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

Mr Buzdar, who visited Makran for the first time after being elected as chief minister of Punjab, said that Gwadar port would emerge as a key port in the region and would play an import role in the economic development of Pakistan.

“A functional Gwadar Port would end sense of deprivation of the people of Balochistan,” he said. “A bright economic future of Pakistan as well as Balochistan lies in Gwadar port as the deep port is being considered the heart of the CPEC,” Mr Buzdar said.

He expressed optimism that the development of Gwadar would start in the near future. He lauded efforts of the Balochistan government in turning Gwadar into a modern city of Asia.

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 .
