CPEC to bring peace, prosperity to Balochistan: minister


QUETTA: Federal Minister for Planning and Development Asad Umar has said that the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project will change the fate of not only Pakistan but also the entire region.

Talking to media persons during his visit to Turbat on Monday along with Minister for Defence Production Zubaida Jalal, he said that after its completion the CPEC would bring peace and prosperity to Balochistan.

Asad Umar had reached Quetta along with Prime Minister Imran Khan two days ago, but stayed here to consult the authorities concerned on the development package for southern Balochistan.

During his visit to Quetta, the prime minister had hinted at announcing a special package for southern Balochistan.

Official sources said the package would be worth around Rs150 billion and the former Federally Administered Tribal Areas would also be included in it.

PM may visit Gwadar next month and announce Rs150bn package

“Asad Umer is visiting Makran division to consult the authorities concerned and stakeholders on the special package,” Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan Alyani told Dawn, adding that the federal minister would also visit the port city of Gwadar and other areas of Makran division.

The sources said Prime Minister Khan was expected to visit Gwadar next month where he would announce a special uplift package for southern Balochistan.

The minister for planning and development said the previous governments had not done anything for the development of southern Baloch­istan, but the present regime was taking all measures for development of not only southern Balochistan but also other areas of the province.

“PTI government will resolve issues of the people of Makran and will take steps to provide maximum job opportunities to them,” he said, adding that the Balochistan government was working on a comprehensive plan for an integrated and long-lasting development of southern districts of the province.

“Southern districts remained backward as the previous governments ignored them, but our government will take special steps to change their fate,” the minister said.

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 .
