TURBAT: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday said the dream of Balochistan’s prosperity was being realized with completion of several development projects, ensuring “a new Pakistan in the making”.

“A new and developed Balochistan means a new Pakistan, with an unprecedented progress never took place in history,” the prime minister said in his address at the inauguration of a 448-kilometre-long Sorab-Hoshab road, an important segment of western route of China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

The prime minister said the journey of progress and development was continuing on full pace in every nook and corner of the country.

He said that billions of rupees were being spent on development of Balochistan and the government was in particular focusing on its development to mitigate the sense of deprivation of Baloch people.

Nawaz Sharif said road network in Balochistan would connect Gwadar port upto Khunjerab border with China and would ensure economic activity, reduce poverty and unemployment in the province.

“With completion of every new road in Balochistan, comes another ray of hope of a promising future for the people of province,” he said, adding that a strong communication network would pave way for building of schools, universities and hospitals.
