Balochistan a land of opportunities: CM


QUETTA: Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan Alyani has said that Balochistan is the land of opportunities as its long coastal line, mines and minerals, fisheries, tourism sector and the Tapi gas pipeline project distinguish it in the region.

Speaking at a meeting of heads of different departments of the provincial government to review their progress on Thursday, Mr Alyani said the country would get maximum benefits if importance of Balochistan was accepted in the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor as the province provided access to Afghanistan, Central Asian states and Europe through Iran and Turkey.

The meeting reviewed several development projects launched by different departments, including Forest and Wildlife, Environment, Tourism and Balochistan Coastal Development Authority.

All ministers, secretaries and director general of BCDA attended the meeting, which continued for several hours.

The officials briefed the meeting on projects of their respective departments.

The chief minister said that the decisions about development and progress in all sectors should not be kept only on papers and these projects should be visible on the ground so that fruits of development reached the people.

Reviewing projects of the Forest and Wildlife Department, the chief minister expressed his dissatisfaction over the performance of the department and said that despite being very important department, authorities concerned had not even determined priorities of the department and not suggested development projects for PSDP.

Referring to the 10 billion tree programme, Mr Alyani ordered top officials of the department concerned to ensure full implementation of the programme. He said that in every weather zone tree plantation drive should be launched.

“Fruit trees, including olive, should be planted during every tree plantation campaign,” he said, adding that trees should also be planted in areas along and near Mirani and other dams across the province.

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 .
