PM for all... By M. Akbar

12 February, 2014

The prime minister may be from any political party and he may belong to any province, but he is elected prime minister for all the people. Balochistan has long standing and festering problems such as insurgency, separatism, the civil-military relationship, missing persons, massacre of the Hazara Shia community, unemployment, backwardness, etc.

The prime minister's visits to this province are few and far between and brief. It is not enough to simply assure the provincial government that the Centre will provide it support when needed. Nor is the formation of committees at the provincial level likely to make much difference. It would be worthwhile to evaluate the hefty packages announced by the previous governments to find out whether money had actually been allocated and, if so, whether it had been put to proper use.

Frequent visits to Quetta by the prime minister, meetings with leaders of all shades of opinion, the civil and military leadership, and personally overseeing matters can improve the situation a great deal. The prime minister is expected to devote more time to the smaller provinces to remove their sense of deprivation.
