More job opportunities after NFC award
Quetta: After the announcement of new NFC award, more
opportunities for employment would be created so that unemployed youth
get the jobs. Provincial quota of jobs in the province and federal
government was also being strictly implemented. Concession has also
been sought for youth recruitment in PAF and other federal institutions
in their standards including Education.
These views were expressed by Balochistan Chief Minister Nawab Muhammad
Aslam Raisani while speaking with a delegation of elites of Mastung
which called on him here Tuesday.
Chief Minister told the delegation that two new universities have
started working in Turbat an Loralai due to the efforts of the
provincial government while federal government has also accorded
approval for medical colleges in Khuzdar and Loralai. Funds have also
been allocated for these colleges during the current financial year.
Our government was also in contact with Aga Khan Foundation for setting
up Marine University in Gwadar. He said Aga Khan was being invited to
visit the province soon so that final talks are held for establishment
of Marine University and Aga Khan Hospital.
He said previously nearly 300 seats were reserved in three provinces,
federal institutions and other higher educational institutions for
students of Balochistan Due to our efforts there is increase in these
seats and now 1100 students were given admissions in Engineering,
medical, Commerce and other sectors. Expenses would be met by concerned
provinces or institutions.
This is our big success and now it is duty of the people to benefit
from this facility and take interest for education of their children.
Chief Minister regretted that teachers were being made victims of
target killings. He said Education sector is already in dilapidated
condition and target killing was further creating problems.
Nawab Raisani said objective of reconciliation process initiated by us
was to struggle for development of the province, securing rights and
access of its resources. PPI

advantage of to put in place adaptation and mitigation measures for
