QUETTA : Balochistan Minister for Finance Arif Jan Muhammad Hassani has said that the provincial government has been working to steer the province out of financial woes.
He said this during a meeting with Station Commander Quetta Brigadier Maqbool Ahmed and Executive Officer of Cantonment Zafar Mehmood.
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.
Informing the station commander about the development of Cantonment areas, he said the Cantonment Board was part of the provincial government and it would address the issues of the people living in these areas.
Brig Maqbool lauded the efforts of the provincial government, and called for joint efforts for development of Quetta city.
