Islamabad: Planning, Development and Special Initiatives Minister Assad Umar said on Tuesday that Prime Minister Imran Khan will announce a special development plan for the most developed regions of the country within a few weeks.
In his tweet, the minister said he had spent two days in Southern districts of Balochistan including Awaran, Turbat, Khuzdar and Gwadar where he found that it was necessary to observe the ground realities of the residents of those areas.
“Before announcing a development package (for these areas), observation of ground realities of the areas was necessary,” he added.
He further said: “In all the scarcity we have seen in Southern Balochistan in the past two days, there is a bright spot. Women in this region have more power than women in other parts of Pakistan.”
He said this shows that empowering women is a cultural issue, not wealth and education.
