Mr Alyani directed the officials at the command and operation center to remain active.

Mr Gichki informed the chief minister that command and operation centres would also be established at divisional level in the province.

Meanwhile, Mr Gichki, who is also secretary of sports, while presiding over a meeting directed all departments concerned to timely download data from the Balochistan Command and Operations Centre, which have jointly posted their performance report on the Centre’s app.

Mr Gichki said that the results of the joint platform would be positive and the government policy and strategy in this regard could be implemented properly.
