Govt to probe Bugti’s killing

QUETTA: Information Minister Firdous Ashiq Awan said Wednesday that federal cabinet meeting has decided to set up a judicial commission headed by a judge of the Supreme Court to conduct probe into the killing of veteran Baloch leader, Nawab Akbar Bugti.
Addressing a press conference after the meeting, Awan said: “Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani and the federal cabinet took decision that a judicial commission headed by judge of the Supreme Court will investigate the killing of Nawab Akbar Bugti”.
She said that the premier has also directed to recruit with immediate effect over 6700 posts of the federal government on Balochistan quota.
“The prime minister has ordered that a selection board will conduct test and walk in interviews of the recruitment process within one day in Quetta after an advertisement through newspapers,” she said.
Awan said that the step would give a message to the Balochistan’s youth that government was serious in addressing their problems.
She said that under the devolution plan, the federal government had devolved several departments including health, education, environment, sports, women development, food and agriculture and this would help create more job opportunities in Balochistan.
The minister said that the meeting reviewed one-point agenda of development in connection with implementation of Aghaz-e- Haqooq-e-Balochistan Package.
Awan said that about 65 per cent points of the package have been implemented while the work for implementing the remaining points was in progress.
The minister said the government was taking measures to ensure security and protection to life and property of people of Balochistan by improving law and order.
