QUETTA: Chief Minister Balochistan, Dr Abdul Malik has vowed that the resources of Balochistan would be spent for the welfare of masses and the prime duty of his government is to serve the masses.
Addressing tribal notables and political workers in Ziarat district on Saturday he said that in order to make Ziarat the hub of tourism the masses would have to play their role as well. “Government would take concrete steps for the beautification, cleanness and provision of basic facilities to Ziarat city,” he added.
Dr Abdul Malik said that all children must be enrolled in schools because this century is the century of acquiring knowledge in all fields and the parents must ensure that their children are regularly going to schools.
He said that we have to bring change in our behaviours and attitude, adding that absence of teachers from their duties is not only a crime rather it is one and the same as to destroy the future of our children.
“Unfortunately the rate of infant and mother mortality is high in Balochistan, thus the doctors should also adopt a people-friendly attitude and serve people in remote areas after getting their degrees,” Chief Minister said.
He said that government wants to get rid of all sort of hatreds and contrive unity amongst people of Balochistan to strengthen the country as we need more unity at this critical juncture. “Ziarat is not only the asset of Balochistan but also of entire country, and government will leave no stone unturned in reviving its natural beauty and providing it with all facilities,” he assured.
For the protection of juniper forests in Ziarat, Chief Minister said that he and information minister Abdul Rahim Ziaratwal have talked with prime minister about the issues of solar system, provision of Nakach Loralai Road in the custody of NHA, revival of Ziarat Valley Trust and construction of dams. “The establishment of Residential College in Ziarat would be made at earliest,” he added.
On the occasion, Chief Minister announced Rs 10 million for provision of facilities to the schools in Ziarat, two buses for educational institutes, three bulldozers for farmers, Rs 30 millions for beautification and cleanness of Ziarat valley, one ambulance for district hospital and Rs 0.5 million each for Ziarat Press Club and District Bar Council.
