QUETTA: President Balochistan National Party Sardar Akhtar Mengal said that the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) did not lead to any development in Balochistan. However, it helped in creating job opportunities in Punjab. He said this while addressing a public gathering at Nawab Akbar Bugti Stadium on Sunday. He said there were a number of job opportunities created in Punjab in the wake of multiple projects being undertaken which include industries, railway lines, highways, power projects and other mega schemes while Balochistan is craving for potable water, roads, electricity, education and health for the last 70 years.
