MUSAKHEL: Musakhel Mineral Development project is linked to the prosperity of the area. FC is ready for cooperation with the government for establishing peace and any other sector. Prosperity of people is prosperity of the country. No hurdle in way of progress is intolerable.

These views were expressed by Inspector General Fortier Corps Balochistan Major General Obedullah Khan while addressing tribal elders at a jirga here Tuesday.

Former MPA and ex District Nazim Sardar Asmatullah Musakhel, District President PPP Haji Dadan, District Air JUI-N Maulvi Najmuddin, Director Mining Company Yahya Khan Musakhel and others were also present.

He said work on Musakhel Mineral Development Project has been initiated. However owing to some difficulties there are hurdles in this way including no existence of roads and suitable investors from local population. He said on some places mining has been started. It would not only bring prosperity for the local people this project is very important for country’s economy as well. He said exploitation of minerals is very much necessary so that backward and poverty hit Musakhel area is brought to the development race.

He said to run the project cooperation of the area people is very much necessary because no project is possible without their cooperation of local people.

Tribal people sought cooperation of IG FC for Musakhel-Taunsa highway project which according to them was necessary for the development of the area and reducing distance between Balochistan and Punjab. IG FC assured his cooperation.

Answering a question he said by carrying to practical work on Musakhel Mineral Development Project we want to see people of the area prosperous and ready for every possible cooperation in this regard. Base would also be set up here on the pattern of Chamalang if need be. But for the time being it is not necessary.
