With the resources it has, Balochistan should have had best infrastructure, education and medical facilities, he said.

“Balochistan deserves much better than this: a future,” he added.

It merits mention here that the federal and Balochistan governments have entered into an agreement with the Toronto-based Barrick Gold Corporation, accepting its investment of ten million dollars in the Reko Diq’s gold and mining site.
