Reconciliation in Balochistan

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf promised in their 100 days agenda:

Empower the Balochistan government to launch and champion large-scale efforts for political reconciliation. Ensure significant local participation in development projects; in particular in the development of Gwadar.

You can read these promises in the 100 Days agenda document released by PTI available HERE in English and HERE in Urdu.

Below are the actions by Imran Khan and his Governance as a step towards fulfilling this promise:

Update 1:

Khan urged the provincial authorities to bring a new local government system in Balochistan along the lines of what the PTI is introducing in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

He said the PTI had won a two-thirds majority in KP in the 2018 elections because it had managed to improve the basic living conditions of people there. Development efforts can only bear fruit if power and funds are devolved down to the level of village councils in Balochistan, he added, citing the KP model.
