Chief Minister of Balochistan, Sarfraz Bugti, underscored the importance of adhering to court schedules and respecting judicial processes. “The wheat purchase case cannot be delayed in court. We must always respect the courts and not view court summons as disrespectful,” he asserted outside the court after appearing in the wheat purchase case.

Chief Minister Bugti also revealed a comprehensive plan for reforms, with a particular focus on the food department. A total of 67 reforms are slated for implementation, aimed at streamlining processes and enhancing efficiency across various sectors.

Addressing concerns regarding the federal budget, Bugti reassured that Balochistan was not overlooked. “In the federal budget, the case of Balochistan has been presented to the federal government, and suggestions have also been made. Many projects from Balochistan have been included, and this time, numerous schemes have been added,” he elaborated.

He acknowledged Balochistan’s historical grievances about federal allocations but expressed optimism about the current budget’s inclusiveness. “Balochistan, which has always complained to the federation about being neglected in allocations, sees many of its projects included in the federal budget this time,” Bugti noted.

Moreover, Bugti outlined his commitment to preparing a robust budget for Balochistan, prioritizing health, education, and student scholarships. He also mentioned the IMF’s conditions for creating a surplus and the province’s efforts to generate additional resources to boost income.

Restoring security and peace in Balochistan, especially in Quetta, remains a top priority for the Chief Minister. “Restoring peace and order in Balochistan, including Quetta, is a priority,” he affirmed. Reforms aimed at ending state crime are also in progress, reflecting Bugti’s dedication to law and order.

Chief Minister Sarfraz Bugti’s comprehensive address to the media not only highlighted his government’s proactive approach to reforms and budget planning but also reinforced his commitment to addressing both judicial and developmental issues in Balochistan.
