    That's a very good step. Pakistan is an agricultural nation with an agri economy and Baluchistan needs investment in its agricultural sector. Hopefully the govt moves ahead with this.

    So who will claim all these developmental steps in baluchistan. PMAP, NP or N. Most probably N since they have 21 seats which more than the rest and the CM is theirs. Chances are N may form a stronger govt in Baluchistan next time.
