we need three hubs in balochistan gawader - turbat - quetta
TURBAT has all necessary potential to become Pakistan's Major Urban centre in the South. It's very near from Iranian Border. Its far from Punjab which is quite vulnerable in case of any conflict with India. It has vast land, where can built infrastructure on cheap cost. It is already connected with Gwadar Port. By industrialization Punjab, we are destroying Punjab's Agricultural production. I think Industrialization should be more focused in the Southern Balochistan areas like Gwadar Turbat Panjgur Washuk Kharan, and in Southern Sindh like Karachi Hydebarad Thatta Umarkot Tharparkar Sujawal.

But unfortunately our political Governments sees everything from political ayes. Turbat has only 1 seat in the National Assembly, so nobody is interested. Rather than Karachi or Punjab where they cashes their infrastructure development during election campaigns.

Thal Canal project
We hope the significant project does not fall prey to politics
Editorial | July 12, 2020


The order by Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar that work on the Greater Thal Canal should start without any further loss of time has kindled hopes of revival of the 160-year-old project. The canal will irrigate barren lands in the districts of south Punjab, thereby increasing food production manifold in the country. The main canal will be 35km long and its water-carrying capacity will be 8,500 cusecs. The length of branch canals will be 344km. The canal system will irrigate 290,000 acres of land in Bhakkar, Layyah, Muzaffargarh, Khushab and Jhang, increasing food production in these districts by as much as 40%.

The project was planned by the then government in 1860 and funds had also been allocated for it. It was, however, shelved due to the changing priorities of the government. The Mankirah branch of the Greater Thal Canal was completed in 2008, but after that the work was stopped. The Asian Development Bank has announced a grant of $150 million for the Chobarra branch of the canal. Now the chief minister has announced start of work on the project. Last year, Mr Buzdar had also laid the foundation stone of the 120-year-old Jalalpur canal system.

For the Thal Canal Project, the Punjab government will provide all sorts of resources, manpower and expertise. The chief minister has ordered that the legal process for acquisition of land for the purpose should be expedited and transparency should be ensured in payment for the acquired land. Experts are of the opinion that the canal will also help overcome the water shortage by preventing the rapidly declining groundwater level. The recent wheat shortage has also led the authorities to resume work on the long-stalled canal project. The resumption of work on the Thal Canal will increase food production which will not only make the country self-reliant in food but surplus will be available for export. We hope the significant project does not fall prey to politics.

LAHORE – The country’ first underground water reservoir system to store water from seasonal rains and reduce flooding has been launched in the Punjab capital city.

The project, titled “Monsoon Underground Water Reservoir”, took three months to be completed at Lahore’s Lawrence Garden.

Built at the cost of Rs. 149 million, the water tank can hold up to 1.5 million gallons of water after a heavy downpour.

It is modelled after reservoirs in Japan and the United States, which offer an effective use of water resources and disaster prevention especially in metropolitan areas

It is not a "naya shehar". Its rignt next to the walled city and will be considered as a part of lahore, much like a new canttonment...
