QUETTA: Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani on Sunday directed the Balochistan chief secretary and home secretary to take steps to improve law and order situation in the province.

Talking to a delegation of Hazara community at Governor's House, the prime minister said that a concerted strategy must be evolved to ensure peace in Balochistan. He said any leniency on part of law enforcers would not be tolerated. He also expressed his sympathies with the families of six people killed in a gun attack in Quetta on Sunday.

Separately, Gilani said he had directed the Balochistan chief secretary to identify 35,000 graduates of Balochistan to be given jobs by the government.

"Fifteen hundred jobs in Federal Levies Force have already been provided to the people of Balochistan," he said while talking to a PPP Balochistan delegation led by its provincial president Mir Sadiq Umrani.

"1,500 more jobs will be created in the Federal Levies Force in Balochistan this year," Gilani said, adding that the government would further recruit 10,000 youth in different departments. Out of them, 5,000 would be sent abroad to acquire required skills in their respective fields, the prime minister added.

He said that under the 18th Amendment, provisional autonomy had been granted to provinces in order to empower them. He said that under the 7th National Finance Commission Award (NFC), the share of Balochistan had reached Rs 120 billion as compared to Rs 40 billion in the past. He said the government had allocated Rs 6 billion to provide scholarships to the youth of Balochistan.
