Government of PakistanProsperity in Balochistan ultimate destination: Nawaz Sharif

SIBBI, Pakistan: Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif Thursday said the prosperity in Balochistan was the ultimate destination though anti-state elements were green-eyed over the ongoing development process in the province.

“The prosperity of Balochistan is our destination. The course is coarse. Though many others had also claimed of Balochistan’s development in the past but never thought to pave way to reach this destination,” he said addressing a gathering after inaugurating a 174-kilometer road connecting Sibbi with Kohlu.

Executed by the National Logistics Cell (NLC), the road is the shortest link between Balochistan and Punjab provinces. After its completion, the distance between Sibbi and Kohlu has been reduced from 600 to just 174 kilometers.

The prime minister was accompanied by Balochistan Governor Muhammad Khan Achakzai, Chief Minister Sanaullah Zahri, Minister for Port and Shipping Mir Hasil Bazenjo and Adviser to the PM on National Security Lt General (retd) Nasser Khan Janjua.

The work on the project was halted in 2006 owing to law and order situation. However, it was revived after the government signed a contract with NLC in 2014 that completed the project within one and a half year.
