QUETTA: Adviser to Balochistan Chief Minister on Food Ziaullah Lango has said that Gwadar is the lifeline of Balochistan.

“Gwadar’s development can change the destiny of the province,” said the minister on Monday.

He said, “The current government is trying its best to provide benefits of Gwadar to the people.

The food minister said, “Allah has not only bestowed Balochistan with mines and minerals, but also natural resources. If these resources are utilised properly then there is no reason for the population spread all over the province to be deprived of the basic necessities of life.”

Many promises were made in the past but implementation on not one came through, he said, adding that those implementations were the need of the hour as they would have pulled Balochistan out of the darkness and into the limelight and put an end to the sense of deprivation among the youth.

“There is less time and more problems, but we are working to utilise all resources at our disposal to provide relief to the masses,” the minister added.
