The minister said without ending corruption from society, the country cannot develop.

“Though the province has been facing severe financial challenges, we – under the leadership of the Balochistan CM – have been taking immediate steps to control the prevailing financial crisis,” he said, adding that the provincial cabinet had been exercising austerity to control extra expenditures.

Hassani said the provincial leadership was determined to develop the province.
