Delay in NFC Award announcement to be taken up with federal govt: CM Balochistan Jam Kamal
Lack of funds was hampering development in the province and he would discuss the matter of raise in the share of Balochistan in NFC award with the prime minister, he said while responding to the points of order raised by opposition members.
He said the increased funds received under the NFC award would put the province on the path of development. It was the collective issue of the people and the opposition members' positive suggestions could not be ignored, he added.
He assured the members that reports about the NFC award would be presented in the assembly on annual basis.

He said the federal government would be approached to provide funds for addressing the problems being faced by the province. He also called for early announcement of the NFC Award by the federal government.
Opposition members Sana Baloch and Nasrullah Zeray, on the points of order, had drawn the attention of the House towards delay in the announcement of NFC Award, which was affecting the development in the province.
