China-Pakistan Economic Corridor: Opportunities and Risks

What’s new? Pakistani leaders say the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), launched in 2015, is a “game changer” for the country’s ailing economy. But opaque plans for the corridor, the upheaval likely to affect locals along its route, and profits flowing mostly to outsiders could stir unrest. The government has repressed CPEC critics.

Why does it matter? CPEC could help revive Pakistan’s economy. But if it moves ahead without more thorough debate in parliament and provincial legislatures and consultation with locals, it will deepen friction between the federal centre and periphery, roil provinces already long neglected, widen social divides and potentially create new sources of conflict.

Tadanch – Where the drinking water kills

‘There is another very sensitive and serious aspect of this whole dilemma. The area is very close to a Pakistani nuclear missile testing site. Recently they have been trying to extend this site and therefore are forcing people to abandon their villages.’ Dil Murad Baloch

The Balochistan Post Report

Behzad Deedag Baloch

It was beyond comprehensible turn of events for inhabitants of Tadanch, when, according to some reports, nearly 20 people died and more than 150 others reached the brink of death within a span of only few days. It is now estimated that the number of deaths could rise.

The far-flung area of Tadanch, which is located in Jhao district of Awaran, has a total population of less than 400, who live in 9 to 10 small villages. There are neither health facilities nor any mobile signals in the area. For even small errands the villagers travel for days on camels and donkeys to the city of Bela.

ٹڑانچ – دی بلوچستان پوسٹ رپورٹ

“تیسرامقصد، سب سے زیادہ بھیانک ہے، یہ علاقے پاکستان کے میزائل ٹیسٹنگ سائٹ کے قریب ہیں اور فوج اس میں مزید اضافہ چاہتاہے، اس لیئے آبادیوں کو مٹایا جارہا ہے۔” دلمراد بلوچ

بہزاد دیدگ بلوچ

ٹڑانچ میں جب چند دنوں کے اندر ہی 90 سے زائد لوگ شدید بیمار ہوکر قریب المرگ ہوگئے اور سات وفات پاگئے، تو یہ اس چھوٹے سے گاؤں کیلئے قیامت صضریٰ کا منظر تھا۔ پوری دنیا سے کٹا ہوا یہ گاؤں، جہاں نا فون کی سہولت ہے نا مبائل اور نا ہی شہروں سے ملانے کیلئے کوئی سڑک، ایسی صورت میں انکی پوری دنیا چار سو گھرانے پر ہی مشتمل ہے، جو 30 سے 40 گھروں پر مشتمل چھوٹے چھوٹے بستیوں کی صورت بکھرے ہوئے مختلف جگہوں پر ایک دوسرے سے قریب قریب آباد ہیں اور سب کسی نا کسی طرح آپس میں رشتہ دار ہیں۔ یہی انکی پوری دنیا ہے اور اچانک سب ایک ایک کرکے بسترِ مرگ پر پڑنے لگے، یہاں نا کوئی ڈاکٹر میسر ہے اور نا ہی کوئی ہسپتال کہ کسی کو اس غیبی بیماری کی وجہ معلوم ہوسکتا۔

All India Baloch Conference Jacobabad

(28, 29, and 30th December 1932)

Note

Our generation has been listening about “Balochistan and All India Baloch Conference” of Jacobabad since our childhood. All of our lives we have been curious about its resolutions, elected cabinet and the next conference in Hyderabad.

In recent years we were fortunate enough to be able to read all about this conference both in Urdu and English in various books and magazines. We got the photocopies of the original document which was circulating amongst the academia. Then, the verified copy was published in a research paper of renowned scholar, Dr Inam ul Haq Kausar (Yousuf Aziz Magsi, Balochistan Review – Vol XII-XIII, 2004, UoB Quetta Pp. 133-140). We compared this document with its Urdu version, and found it correct. Some minor spelling mistakes in the names of the individuals are corrected.
