Earlier on arrival at Quetta Cantonment, Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa welcomed Prime Minister Imran Khan.
Addressing a ceremony in Quetta, the prime minister said that former rulers had bankrupted the country. “We are thankful to the COAS for providing funds for the only cardiac institute in the province,” he said.
The prime minister announced that the government will establish a cancer institute in collaboration with the provincial government and the Army.
He expressed the confidence that development of Western route of China Pakistan Economic Corridor will enhance connectivity and help in developing the deprived regions of Balochistan. “The carriageway will connect Balochistan not only with different parts of the country but also the region. This project will prove to be a game changer for the entire region.”
PM Imran Khan said that the government is also planning to lay down Quetta-Taftan rail track to enhance connectivity with Iran.
He said that the government believes in uplifting all parts of the country on equal basis. He regretted that Balochistan was neglected in the past but now concentration on the province will prove to be the harbinger of development for the whole country.
Imran Khan asked the provincial government to introduce a strong local government system on the pattern of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to serve the masses.
Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan said that Prime Minister Imran Khan is working hard to address the grievances of people of Balochistan.
He thanked the prime minister for starting the work in real terms on western route of China Pakistan Economic Corridor.
The chief minister said that health is a basic need and this complex is a great gift for the people of province.
Jam Kamal Khan regretted that development of Balochistan was ignored in the past due to lack of accountability, sustainability and planning strategy.
Quetta-Zhob (N-50 Motorway) will link Quetta with Zhob while passing through Kuchlak, Muslim Bagh and Qilla Saifullah.
It will reduce travelling time between Quetta and Dera Ismail Khan from 12 hours to 4 hours and help uplifting socio-economic activity for local population, particularly local businesses by providing access to minerals and mines and direct access to main markets.
The road will also facilitate speedy transportation of goods from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to sea port of Karachi.
