In a statement, Balochistan’s Minister for Education Naseebullah Marri said that the decision to open schools in Naseerabad and Jaffarabad districts, which are severely affected by floods would be taken later.

Earlier in the day, PM Shehbaz Sharif visited Balon area of Balochistan to review the relief work on the Bibi Nani bridge. He also inspected the gas pipeline restoration work being conducted by the technical teams of the Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC). Balochistan people were facing problems in absence of gas and power supply to the province, which were cut off because of the damage to the infrastructure caused by devastating floods.
