Quetta – Federal government is taking decisions that are depriving Balochistan of its legitimate rights, learnt The Balochistan Point.
Federal government had stopped release of funds of Rs. 15 billion that were approved during visit of Prime Minister to Quetta last month.
This issue was raised by Provincial Minister Sardar Aslam Bizenjo in Balochistan Assembly on Monday.
“I have been told that these funds would be used by Federal Government for a solar energy project in Pakistan,” replied Dr. Malik Baloch, Chief Minister of Balochistan, in assembly.
“Electricity generated from solar energy project would be incorporated in National electric grid and Balochistan will not benefit from it,” lamented members of Balochistan assembly.
In separate news, vacancy of Additional Attorney General (AAG) for Balochistan has been shifted to Punjab, reported Jang Quetta on Tuesday.
Federal government had created two vacancies for AAG in Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP). A person from KP was appointed as AAG but the vacancy of Balochistan has been shifted to Punjab and a lawyer from Kashmir has been appointed on it.
“This is yet another example of how Federal government treats Balochistan like a colony and ignores it’s in every walk of life,” Manzoor, a Law student told The Balochistan Point.
