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

Bombs found near Peshawar school defused
Peshawar: City police foiled a sabotage attempt and defused two remote-controlled bombs found near a government girls high school in the Landi Arbab area on Tuesday.

Police however think that the explosives were meant to spread terror rather than target the girls school.

An official of the bomb disposal unit informed that the bombs were planted at a distance of about 40 meters from each other. One was in the form of explosives packed in a pressure cooker and the other in a ghee canister.

Both the bombs were primed, ready to be detonated any time by the unknown saboteurs through remote control. Police have recovered the batteries, detonators, cables and other related items also, the official said.

He emphasized that Climate Change was not a matter of sustainability but of survival, so it was imperative that measures be taken to combat its effects. In his keynote address, M. Munir Sheikh of the Global Change Impacts Studies Institute shared his research with the audience, clearly showing the global impact of climate change with examples specific to Pakistan, like the change in seasons, crop patters, rainfall and weather phenomenon like storms, floods and extended periods of droughts. Country Representative of IUCN Pakistan, Shah Murad Aliani explained the role of IUCN in providing a platform for sharing of research and measures that can lead to adaptation and mitigation of the impacts of Climate Change.

In his address, the Chief Guest at the seminar, Ghulam Jan Baloch, The Minister for Environment Government of Balochistan, strongly urged organizations like IUCN and the University to raise awareness about this burning issue across the province so that people who will be facing the impacts can prepare themselves better and take advantage of the research that is being conducted by the experts. He reaffirmed the commitment of his government to taking measures for the betterment of the people and called upon the academia and scientific experts to join hands in putting forward solutions and alternatives so for the common man could not only brace himself against the impacts but can also combat its effects.
