QUETTA: Balochistan Chief Minister Mir Sarfaraz Ahmed Bugti has taken decisive action against the long-standing misuse of official vehicles by government officers, signaling a new era of accountability and responsibility. In a stern directive, he has ordered that Balochistan’s official vehicles will no longer be utilized outside the province’s boundaries, putting an end to the flagrant disregard for regulations.

This order on behalf of the chief minister came after hundreds of official vehicles were spotted in Karachi belonging to the Balochistan government.

NOCs Required From CS Balochistan

Under the new measures, any government vehicle intending to embark on official business outside Balochistan must obtain prior approval in the form of a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the Chief Secretary, ensuring transparency and adherence to protocol. Furthermore, all government vehicles previously deployed in other provinces have been promptly recalled to enforce compliance with the regulations.

Chief Minister Bugti emphasized that no officer will be permitted to exploit official vehicles for personal use beyond their designated deployment areas, reiterating that government resources are public assets and must not be subjected to misuse. This crackdown serves as a stern warning to those who have disregarded regulations and misappropriated public resources for personal gain.

Accountability Within Government Machinery: Bugti

By implementing these stringent measures, Chief Minister Bugti reaffirms his commitment to upholding integrity and accountability within the government machinery, demonstrating a proactive approach towards eradicating systemic abuses and restoring public trust in governance. This decisive action underscores the government’s unwavering dedication to serving the people of Balochistan with transparency and responsibility, Mr. Bugti stated in a statement issued to the press on Thursday evening.
