Prime Min­is­ter Raja Parvez Ashraf has vowed to ad­dress Balochis­tan’s is­sue through col­lec­tive wis­dom and the di­a­logue process.

In­au­gu­rat­ing sev­eral de­vel­op­ment projects in­clud­ing Civic Cen­ter and East Bay Ex­preess­way in Gawadar on Fri­day ‚ he said the present demo­cratic gov­ern­ment has taken sev­eral steps to re­move the sense of de­pri­va­tion of Balochi peo­ple but a lot more needs to be done in this re­gard.

He said the apol­ogy ten­dered by Pres­i­dent Asif Zar­dari to the Baloch peo­ple is a clear man­i­fes­ta­tion that the gov­ern­ment is alive to the sit­u­a­tion in Balochis­tan. He said Balochis­tan be­ing rich in nat­u­ral re­sources is a very im­por­tant prov­ince. Its peo­ple are hos­pitable and pa­tri­otic Pak­ista­nis.

The Prime Min­is­ter said both the fed­eral and pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ments are striv­ing for the de­vel­op­ment of Balochis­tan. He said in­au­gu­ra­tion of Civic Cen­ter and the ex­press­way projects in Gwadar will go a long way in de­vel­op­ment of the area and the en­tire prov­ince.

The Prime Min­is­ter said that to­day the me­dia is free and vi­brant in the coun­try. He said the ju­di­ciary is also in­de­pen­dent and we all have sac­ri­ficed for this ju­di­ciary. He said Pak­istan Army is play­ing a vi­tal role for the se­cu­rity and de­vel­op­ment of the coun­try.

The Prime Min­is­ter said there is no con­flict among the in­sti­tu­tions. He said all the in­sti­tu­tions are im­por­tant and play­ing their due role in the de­vel­op­ment of the coun­try. Raja Pervez Ashraf said that it is first time in his­tory of the coun­try that a demo­cratic gov­ern­ment is com­plet­ing its ten­ure.

He said af­ter the ten­ure the pub­lic will elect their rep­re­sen­ta­tives that is the best way of con­tin­u­a­tion of democ­racy and de­vel­op­ment.
