Earlier, the second meeting of the National Development Council was held under the chairmanship of Prime Minister Imran Khan in which the national development agenda, especially development projects in Baluchistan, was reviewed.

During the meeting, Prime Minister Imran Khan said that development of road network and infrastructure in Baluchistan was essential for the benefit of CPEC projects.

The Prime Minister also said that ensuring law and order situation in Baluchistan and socio-economic development is the top priority of the government as financial resources have been provided to Baluchistan in the past but their proper utilization has been completely ignored.
