Balochistan govt being run thru social media apps: opposition

QUETTA: Leaders of opposition parties have alleged that the provincial coalition government has miserably failed to take steps to cope with the Covid-19 pandemic and its affairs are being run through WhatsApp and Twitter and other social media apps.

Speaking at a press conference on Thursday, opposition leaders Advocate Malik Sikandar Khan and others said that despite constituting a parliamentary committee on Covid-19 a long time ago, the government had not held a single meeting of it just to hide what the opposition leaders called corruption being committed by the government leaders in health and other institutions in the name of coronavirus and health emergency.

The opposition leaders also rejected the allegation by a spokesman for the government that opposition leaders had disappeared in the coronavirus pandemic in the province and said that it was the government which was not visible on the ground, while the opposition leaders were standing by the masses.

They said that since the BAP-led provincial government took oath, the opposition leaders had been pointing out “flawed policies” of the government, but it did nothing to change tack.

They said that the provincial government was using development funds through non-elected politicians and constituencies of opposition leaders were being ignored in development projects.

They opposition leaders said that they had written letters to the chief justice of Pakistan, governor of Balochistan, chief justice of the BHC and chief election commissioner and provincial election commissioner to take action against the “incompetent government” of Balochistan.

The parliamentary leader of Balochistan National Party, Malik Naseer Shahwani, said the government had installed just six ventilators in Fatima Jinnah Chest Hospital and three ventilators in Sheikh Zaid Hospital and senior politician and MPA Syed Fazal Agha had to be shifted to Karachi due to lack of ventilators.

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 .
