Quetta [Pakistan], June 19 (ANI): Lashing out over the incident of violence inside and outside the Balochistan Assembly, Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari has said that the "visuals were highly unfortunate."
"Scenes of violence inside and outside the Balochistan Assembly are highly unfortunate. We should have the tolerance to oppose each other through the power of our ideas not violence," the PPP Chairman tweeted.
Chaotic scenes had erupted outside the provincial assembly earlier on Friday as scores of Opposition lawmakers and supporters holding a protest outside the assembly were baton-charged by police.
Heated words between police personnel and Opposition lawmakers were exchanged, which caused the situation to turn tense, The News International.
Amid massive demonstrations by opposition lawmakers and their supporters, the budget session in Pakistan's Balochistan Assembly started on Friday a few hours later than the scheduled time.
Protesting over the issue of unfair distribution of funds, opposition lawmakers had blocked access to the provincial assembly premises to prevent the presentation of the provincial budget for the new fiscal year, Dawn newspaper reported.
The session could not commence for two hours as opposition members locked up the assembly gates and prevented administrative officials from opening the gates. Moreover, the opposition members and their supporters also clashed with police personnel.
This comes as the opposition lawmakers from the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam, Balochistan National Party-Mengal, and Pashtunkhwa Milli Awami party have been protesting for several days against the neglect of their constituencies in the budget.
On Thursday, opposition parties had blocked national highways passing through many cities and towns of Balochistan.
According to the Pakistani daily, the protesters had chanted slogans against the provincial government and alleged that non-elected politicians were being granted funds and members of the provincial assembly from the opposition were being ignored just because they did not belong to the ruling party.

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
