Pakistan's Orange Line Metro Train project in the country's eastern city of Lahore under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), was completed and delivered to the Pakistani side on Friday, according to the joint venture that is responsible for the implementation of the project.

As an early-harvest project of CPEC, the Orange Line metro train service in Lahore, the capital city of the country's Punjab province, is Pakistan's first-ever mass rapid urban transit train service, and the project is built by a joint venture of China State Railway Group Co., Ltd. and China North Industries Corporation.

With a total investment of around 1.6 billion U.S. dollars, the construction work of the Orange Line project started in September 2015, and the project is expected to be put into commercial operation soon.

Wang Yunlin, executive deputy general manager of the Orange Line project, told media that despite the COVID-19 epidemic and tight construction schedule, the metro train project was successfully completed and delivered, which is the fruit of the collaborative efforts of the Chinese and Pakistani employees.

Over 2,000 local people were employed at the peak of the project's construction, he said, adding that the traveling of local people will be greatly improved after the project is put into commercial operation.

The Orange Line project adopted advanced Chinese technology, standards and equipment, and a smooth integration of Chinese standards and unique local requirements has been realized, Wang said.

According to the joint venture, the length of the Orange Line project is 25.58 km, and the project has 26 stations including 24 elevated stops and two underground stations, connecting several densely-populated areas of Lahore. A total of 27 sets of trains will be put into use which are expected to provide traveling service for 250,000 passengers daily, at the early stage of the commercial operation. Enditem

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 .
