Secretary General of Balochistan National Party (Awami) and Provincial Minister for Agriculture, Balochistan Mir Asadullah Baloch said the flood-affected people were in desperate need of support but the province was always left alone in such natural disasters. Talking to APP, he said the official matters were badly paralyzed because of the prevailing financial crisis in the province. “Balochistan wants to get a suitable share of assistance for the rehabilitation of flood affectees pledged by global partners in donors conference held in Geneva,” he added. Baloch said the federal government has not provided Rs 40 billion in finances for the current financial year of Balochistan and Rs 11 billion were outstanding for the last financial year. According to the constitution, Balochistan’s share in the national finance commission (NFC) award was protected, but the province received Rs 11 billion less during the last financial year, while the payment for this quarter of the current financial year, which is close to Rs 40 billion was not provided. “We demand our due share in the NFC award and not any relief package from the federation,” he added. Balochistan, he said was facing a severe financial crisis at present and did not even have money to pay the salaries of the employees. He claimed that the federal government had not given funds to the province for the rehabilitation of the flood victims. He called on the political leadership to make collective efforts for the signing of a new charter of democracy and economy for a stronger and prosperous Pakistan. He wanted all the parties to think of saving the country while keeping their interests at bay.
