ISLAMABAD: The government of Balochistan has allocated Rs4,490 million for the deputy commissioners (DC) to complete developmental projects in their districts to facilitate the people.

Talking to APP on Sunday, the chief minister’s spokesperson Bushra Rind said that the government was committed to bringing reforms in all institutions and to improve their performance by ensuring good governance.
The chief minister, she said, had also instructed the commissioners and authorised them to plan the important projects of Rs100 million in their divisions for the development of primary infrastructure and communication network in the province.

Bushra said CM Jam Kamal had promised to give Rs150 million extra developmental budget to every district and also directed the authorities concerned to extend maximum facilities of public welfare in the province.

‘Infrastructure development top priority’

The spokesperson said the Balochistan government has also given approval to set up committees at the district level to bring change in the system and eliminate corruption.

“We are committed to bring drastic improvement in the health and education sectors,” she said while promising that resources would never become a hindrance in the development process.

The government has also allocated special funds to the DCs, which would be utilised in flood, drought and other emergency situations, she added.

CM Kamal has stressed the need for introducing public welfare policies, she said, adding that all the government departments were responsible to facilitate the masses.

Providing basic facilities to people at their doorsteps were the topmost priority of the government, she quoted the CM as saying.

The divisional commissioners have directed the departments concerned to complete all the development projects in time, saying no negligence would be tolerated in this regard.
