Central leader Balochistan National Party (BNP-Mengal) Senator Dr Jehanzeb Jamaldeni on Sunday urged political parties to shun their difference and work jointly for economic development and social uplift of remote areas of Balochistan. Talking to APP, Jamaldeni said that it was high time to pay more focus on construction of small dams in Balochistan to boost agriculture sector of the province to turn several thousand acres of barren land into green land. He said that a large area of barren land could be used for various crops by managing availability of water which was only possible with initiating small dam projects in the province.
He said that such projects are vital to promoting agriculture and agro-based economy and ensuring socio economic progress of the province and the country as well. This will enable the local residents to cultivate their lands and accrue economic benefits, he added. He said that the government should also initiate work on setting up small industrial zones in Balochistan to achieve better results by enhancing industrial growth of the country. Terming China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) as important project for uplift of country, Jamaldeni expressed the hope that people will truly get the positive impacts of this project.
He said that with this project, the living standard of people of Balochistan will also change with investment in various sectors that will lead to address the issue of unemployment.—APP
