Langove affirms peaceful Balochistan guarantees development of country


QUETTA: Balochistan Home Minister Zia Langove on Saturday said hostile forces were trying to jeopardise the country’s development by creating unrest in the province.

Chairing a meeting in Quetta on the law and order situation, the minister said a peaceful Balochistan guaranteed the development of the country and that was why hostile countries were attempting to fuel uncertainty in the province.

Langove vowed that the elements hatching such conspiracies would not be allowed to succeed.

“The government has been taking measures to maintain peace in Balochistan and secure the lives and properties of the citizens,” he said.

The minister maintained that because of the government’s effective steps to improve the law and order situation, major local and foreign investors were coming to Balochistan and that paving the way for the province’s economic growth.

Speaking on the development schemes in the Balochistan, Langove said the government would ensure the provision of basic facilities to the people.

He directed the authorities concerned to beef up the security of the development projects in Kalat and Khaliqabad.

He added that the government had a master plan for the development of Kalat and Khaliqabad. “A housing society will be approved for the expansion of Khaliqabad.”

Earlier this year, the Balochistan government announced Rs126 billion for 2,461 new and ongoing development schemes under the Public Sector Development Programme (PSDP).

According to the PSDP documents, the provincial government has included 1,796 new and 665 ongoing development schemes in the programme announced in 2019-20 budget.

Priority has been given to education, commutation, health, public health engineering, local government, law and order, urban planning and development.

The highest allocation of Rs24.6 billion has been made for 581 new development schemes in the communication sector and the second highest allocation is of Rs12.6 billion for 284 development schemes of the education sector.

The provincial government will spent Rs12.21 billion on 574 public health engineering department’s development schemes for supplying drinking water to the people who are facing shortage of water since long.

In the next financial year, the government will spend Rs8.20 billion on 113 new development schemes while it has allocated Rs3.518 billion for 19 development schemes in the agricultural sector.

The government has allocated Rs2.16 billion for the 114 local government-related development schemes. The industries sector will get Rs862.15 million for 16 development schemes.

The provincial government will spent Rs3.66 bmillion on 70 development schemes of the urban planning and development department. An amount of Rs1.63 billion has been allocated for 34 schemes of the social welfare department.

The mineral sector will get Rs223.54 million for its seven development projects proposed in the budget.

Langove for promoting education, sports

Balochistan Minister for Home and Tribal Affairs Mir Zia Langove on Sunday vowed to promote educational activities, including extra-curricular, in the province for mental and physical development of the youth.

“Without boosting educational and sports activities in our society, we can’t compete with developed countries,” he said while addressing Karate Championship in Quetta.

Langove said: “Unfortunately previous regimes didn’t pay adequate attention towards sports and educational activities in the province. But the incumbent government is utilising all resources to foster healthy activities in the province.”

Balochistan is replete with talent, as many sportspersons from the province have brought a good name for the country, he said, adding the government was supporting provincial sportspersons in order to improve image of the country.

On importance of education in the society, the minister said that without access to quality educational facilities the province cannot compete with developed countries. “Our youth should enhance their IT knowledge,” he said.

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
