Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that the federal government believes in equal development of all areas of Baluchistan, and has allocated more funds in the Public Sector Development Programme for the largest province of the country than for any other province, as it has tremendous potential of progress in various sectors.
He indicated that a special package for development of southern Baluchistan is in the offing, and said that Federal Minister for Planning and Development Asad Umar would visit the province soon for consultation with the provincial authorities on the planned package.
During his brief visit to Quetta, the prime minister spoke at a meeting held to review the magnitude of losses caused by heavy rains and floods in Baluchistan, and the rehabilitation efforts and measures to contain the coronavirus pandemic, and the pace of work on the development projects.
Umar told the participants that the planning ministry had constituted a co-ordination committee, having representation of all stakeholders, on development of Baluchistan.
Expressing grief over the losses caused by floods in Baluchistan, the prime minister appreciated the provincial government’s relief measures.
He assured the meeting participants that the federal government would extend co-operation to the provincial government in its efforts for developing Baluchistan to bring it on a par with other provinces.
