QUETTA: Balochistan Chief Minister Abdul Quddus Bizenjo has directed the concerned authorities to increase the pace of work on development projects in Balochistan, particularly in his native town Awaran.
Addressing a public gathering in Awaran district, the chief minister also vowed to restore peace in his constituency stricken with violence for the past many years.
“I can’t elaborate how I am feeling today by standing in front of my own people. My family is thankful to the people of Awaran who always elected me to serve them,” Bizenjo said while inaugurating Jhao Cadet College in Awaran.
Federal Minister for Petroleum Jamal Kamal, Additional Secretary Naseebullah Bazai, Commissioner Kalat Muhammad Hashim Ghalzai, Secretary Local Government Ali Akber Baloch, Secretary Education Noorul Haq Baloch, other government officials and tribal elders were presented on the occasion.
Emphasising on education, he said, “People of Awaran have given immense sacrifices for Pakistan.”
Our children were deliberately driven away from education as our teachers, professors and doctors were killed, he said, adding that “I want you all to educate your children because only an educated Awaran can lead us towards a better future.”
The Balochistan CM announced various development schemes in Awaran, foremost of them were reconstruction of Awaran-Bela Road and solar park in Jhao.
“We have a vision of development for the people of Balochistan,” he said. “Despite shortage of time my team is busy in addressing issues of masses without any pause. Inshallah people will feel positive changes here.”
Talking on deteriorated law and order situation in Awaran, Bizenjo said that there was a surge in terrorist activities in Awaran and the security forces and innocent people had to pay the price by losing their lives but “now the situation has completely changed as people can live in a peaceful environment”.
Bizenjo said, “China-Pakistan Economic Corridor is tantamount to a game-changer for Balochistan. Our people will benefit from the multi-billion dollar project.”
