Zahoor Agha sworn in as Balochistan’s governor


QUETTA: Syed Zahoor Ahmed Agha on Friday took the oath as the 22nd governor of Balochistan.

Balochistan High Court Chief Justice Jamal Khan Mandokhail administered the oath to the new governor at a simple but impressive ceremony at Governor House.

The oath-taking ceremony was attended by Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan Alyani, National Assembly Deputy Speaker Qasim Khan Suri, Senators Manzoor Ahmed Kakar and Sana Jamali, provincial ministers, advisers, MNAs, Balochistan Assembly’s former speaker Raheela Hameed Khan Durrani, MPAs, senior government officials, including Chief Secretary Mathar Niaz Rana, IG Police Mohammad Tahir Rai, the IG of Frontier Corps and a large number of leaders and workers of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf.

The parliamentary leader of the PTI in Balochistan Assembly, Sardar Yar Mohammad Rind, who has resigned from the cabinet as education minister, was not present on the occasion. Mr Rind’s resignation has not been accepted by the government so far.

Mr Agha was appointed the governor of Balochistan by President Dr Arif Alvi on Wednesday after accepting the resignation of former governor retired Justice Amanullah Khan Yasinzai, who held the position for two years and eight months.

Mr Agha was born on Oct 4, 1971 in Pishin district. He joined the PTI in 2011 and has since then worked in different positions in the party.

Political observers say that Qasim Suri, who belongs to Quetta, played an important role in convincing Prime Minister Imran Khan for appointing Mr Agha as the Balochistan governor.

A ‘European Silk Road’

publication_icon Philipp Heimberger ,  Mario Holzner and Artem Kochnev wiiw Research Report No. 430, August 2018  43 pages including 10 Tables and 17 Figures FREE DOWNLOAD The German version can be found  here . In this study we argue for a ‘Big Push’ in infrastructure investments in greater Europe. We propose the building of a European Silk Road, which connects the industrial centres in the west with the populous, but less developed regions in the east of the continent and thereby is meant to generate more growth and employment in the short term as well as in the medium and long term. After its completion, the European Silk Road would extend overland around 11,000 kilometres on a northern route from Lisbon to Uralsk on the Russian-Kazakh border and on a southern route from Milan to Volgograd and Baku. Central parts are the route from Lyon to Moscow in the north and from Milan to Constanţa in the south. The southern route would link Central Europe with the Black Sea area and
