Yea it’s true. But they need Federal Help. They cannot afford it by themselves.

Breaking into even smaller districts, will be substantially economically harsh for them.
Lets see what CPEC and Imran Khan can do, he said he will launch war on illteracy and Baluchistan is most illiterate place in Pakistan, so we will have to wait maybe till 2025 to get numbers of Imran has done.

"I intervene in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa because we have the PTI's government there," the premier explained, adding that if
the Centre intervened in Sindh, the provincial leadership "will make a fuss".


ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan said Tuesday Karachi would have progressed if not for the ethnic politics of the 1980s.

PM Imran's comments came during a wide-ranging interview with Kamran Khan on Dunya News.

Earlier today, Khawaja Izharul Hassan, a leader of the ruling PTI's coalition partner the MQM-P, had said a committee to resolve Karachi’s problems was not a solution.

It was reported late last week that the federal and Sindh governments had agreed on forming a committee comprising representatives of the city’s three main stakeholders — the ruling PTI, PPP, and the MQM-P — to address the metropolis' longstanding civic issues.

In his comments today, the premier said looking at the port city in its current state was painful. "The MQM-P founder spread hatred among people [of Karachi] and divided them; he harmed and wreaked havoc in Karachi.

"The situation in Karachi is dire," he added.

He said he has approached the courts on the issue of local government system in Sindh.

"I intervene in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa because we have the PTI's government there," the premier explained, adding that if the Centre intervened in Sindh, the provincial leadership "will make a fuss".

"We are going to do whatever we can for Karachi," he vowed.


PM's 'struggle'


Speaking about his political career, PM Imran said his "whole life had been spent in struggle". "I was nine years old when I started this struggle," he added.

"Those who do not know how to struggle falter," the PM underlined.

Referring to the time he was voted into office, he said Pakistan was close to defaulting, the public institutions were destroyed and the rupee weakened.

"Depreciation of the rupee leads to inflation," he said, adding that the government was paying instalments for the loans the rulers of the past had obtained.

He said that while he was attempting to make the country a welfare state, the elites gathered and are trying to overthrow the government.



Power policy

With regard to power, the premier said electricity in Pakistan was costlier but sold at a cheaper rate, noting that "we are producing the most expensive electricity in the world".

If electricity prices had not been revised upwards, the country would have had to take loans, he noted.

A power policy is set to be introduced in a couple of weeks, he added.


COVID-19 response


Speaking of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the prime minister said many people talked about how he did not understand the crisis.

"Our party and the Opposition leaders kept saying that everything should be shut down during the corona [virus pandemic]," he noted. "A strict lockdown was imposed in Sindh; that was their [provincial government's] right after the 18th Amendment."

"We had to endure a month of criticism during corona," he said. "I told Bill Gates that we saved our lower class by imposing a smart lockdown," he added.

Kaptaan is fighting for all of Pakistan. PPP murdabad.

Well karachi is in good hands now, by ensuring the new commitee is also headed by the same Sindh CM who ruled the province for over a decade; will ensure drastic development can now take root, the citizens worries will be a thing of the past.

Karachi now:




Karachi 2022:

In sha Allah.

Not feasible. It just holds places like Turbat, Baluchistan from development.

Places like those will never be able to afford anything because they don’t have enough money. Inherently poor & broke areas will suffer.
What are you talking about? All a self administered POOR region needs is to get law and order controlled. And then invite businessman from all across the country to invest in special investment zones tax free.
Its Capitalist country not socialist. When business sprawls jobs are created and living standards rise automatically gradually.
This mindset will never let us grow if we stick to this nonsense Federal and Provincial system of resources distribution.
Besides People of turbat Baluchistan know better about there home place, about its strengths and weaknesses, about what will work best for them. Instead of some one sitting in Provincial or Federal capital deciding for their economy and development.

There’s not gonna be any cash flow....

You need CASH to support an area...

You can’t ask a deprived region to start producing CASH for themselves out of thin air!!!
