Quetta Voice Report:
Chief Minister Balochistan, Mir Quddus Bizenjo announced to boycott the National Economic Council (NEC) as a protest against the federal government. The federal government has not translated its words into action when it comes to Balochistan, the CM Balochistan said in a policy statement on Monday.
This attitude indicates a very desperate situation, Mr. Bizenjo lamented. He recalled that even 10 billion rupees announced by the Prime Minister for the rehabilitation of the flood victims have not been provided.
Balochistan Govt provides maximum assistance to the flood affectees
In this regard, repeated reminders were given to the federal government and a letter was also sent to the Prime Minister, the CM mentioned the context of the Prime Minister’s announcement, the provincial government provided maximum assistance and rehabilitation to the victims by using their limited resources.
CM Balochistan said it was hoped that these activities will be further promoted after the receipt of ten billion rupees by the federal government. Due to the lack of resources, the flood victims are still waiting under the open sky for government assistance, he mentioned.
FG failed to include projects suggested by senators and MNAs from Balochistan
The federal government has also been asked to include the projects suggested by the Balochistan members of the Senate and the National Assembly in the federal PSDP, he noted.
Due to the limited development funds of Balochistan, the members cannot give development funds to the Senate and the National Assembly. The members of the Provincial Assembly are not in favor of including the projects suggested by the members of the Senate and the National Assembly in the Provincial Development Program, the CM concluded.
