Balochis­tan bud­get

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION -

SANA SAMAD CM Sanaullah Zahri an­nounced re­cently over Rs 289.35 bil­lion ru­pees yearly bud­get for Balochis­tan. The Balochis­tan gov­ern­ment pro­vided Rs 28 bil­lion for ed­u­ca­tion, 15 per­cent increased com­pare to last year bud­get. Chief Min­is­ter stated to pro­vide 14,000 schol­ar­ships for the stu­dents in na­tional and in­ter­na­tional ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions.

More than 80 pri­mary schools will be up­graded to mid­dle schools and nearly 70 mid­dle schools to be up­graded to high schools. Be­side this, Med­i­cal Col­leges would be es­tab­lished in many ar­eas of Balochis­tan in­clud­ing Tur­bat, Lo­ralia and Khuz­dar. I ap­pre­ci­ate CM Balochis­tan for pro­vid­ing qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion for the devel­op­ment of Balochis­tan. Still ques­tion arises if this bud­get would bring changes? As we have seen that last few bud­gets brought noth­ing but fail­ure. There is no short­age of ca­pable in­di­vid­u­als in Balochis­tan only con­cerned author­i­ties should em­power them to work for poor peo­ple’s pros­per­ity. — Via email
