The head of the Imran Gichki Command and Operation Centre briefed the chief minister on operational activities and effectiveness of the centre. He informed him about the required equipment and other requirements for the centre.

“Unfortunately, not a single previous government bothered to utilise the creative and working abilities of officers and staff and nobody attempted to provide conducive working environment at work places,” CM Alyani said, adding that it was the prime responsibility of a democratic government to utilise the services of experts in different fields.

Mr Alyani directed the officials at the command and operation center to remain active.

Mr Gichki informed the chief minister that command and operation centres would also be established at divisional level in the province.

Meanwhile, Mr Gichki, who is also secretary of sports, while presiding over a meeting directed all departments concerned to timely download data from the Balochistan Command and Operations Centre, which have jointly posted their performance report on the Centre’s app.

Mr Gichki said that the results of the joint platform would be positive and the government policy and strategy in this regard could be implemented properly.

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 .
