QUETTA: The Balochistan cabinet has approved an amendment in the Balochistan Endowment Fund Policy, gearing up for providing free medical facilities, including cancer treatment, and financial help to patients in need.

Underprivileged patients in the province can avail themselves of treatment at medical facilities in any of the country’s major cities. It was decided at the meeting, presided over by Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan Alyani, that surgeries, and assistance for the rehabilitation of special persons, will also be ensured.

Official sources said that the provincial government has decided to extend ‘bridge financing’ for the completion of 20 dams that are under construction under the 100 dams’ construction project, including Basol and Ormara dams.

CM Alyani also approved transfer of the assets of the Balochistan Copper and Gold Project to relevant departments and districts, while additionally approving of a sub-lease draft with a private company to produce solar energy. “We need to gather provincial resources in order to boost the provincial economy, through the provision of funds for development projects,” he said.
