Can we ask our honorable Sardar Akhtar Mengal how did he spend the Chief minister’s secret fund when he was the Cheap minister of Balochistan? At least, Dr. Malik announced, first thing he did after taking oath, to abolish the CM secret fund and you didn’t. Could you tell the Baloch Nation how and where did you spend that fund?

Also, Baloch Nation wants to know how much money you and your great father Sardar Attaullah Mengal made out of selling the Baloch fort in Wadh to FC and where did you spend all those millions rupees?

Wadh Fort dispute resolved

Tuesday, June 21, 2011 – Islamabad—In a sane move the incumbent regime has resolved the old dispute of ownership of the land on which Wadh Fort in Balochistan was built and to this effect it has paid Rs 120 million to Sardar Attaulla Mengal for being the legitimate owner of land, a senior official told Pakistan Observer.

“This was an old dispute and in order to settle this issue a committee headed by Additional chief secretary development was constituted by the government of Balochistan on the direction of President of Pakistan who had desired that, old and irritating issues of Balochistan should be resolved.”

The official said that the cost of the land and Fort worked out by the said committee was Rs 118.7 million while demand of the owner Rs 120 million.

However, the committee observed that there is a minor difference of Rs 1.26 million between the finding of the committee and demand of Sardar Attaullah Mengal.

Therefore, the committee unanimously agreed to make the payment demanded by the owner as a goodwill gesture.

The Central Development Working Party (CDWP) which held on June 14, 2011 has approved the project titled with purchase of land and allied facilities under occupation of Kalat Scouts at Wadh. The sponsoring agency of the project is Interior Ministry and executing agency is the Frontier Corps Balochistan.

The official said that Wadh Fort was constructed by Public Works Department in 1978 and handed-over to Frontier Corps on November 15, 1980. He said Sardar Mengal is demanding compensation amounting to Rs 120 million of land, being the legitimate owner over which his Fort has been built.

“The Rs 120 million includes the cost of land of the Wadh Fort measuring 60 acres, cost of the agriculture produce since 1960, cost of Fort sardar Noor Ud Din Mengal and cost of Karez.”

To a question the official said that ECNEC (executive committee of national economic council) on May, 2011 has already given the anticipatory approval for making payment of Rs 120 million to Sardar Attauallah Mengal on the endorsement of Prime Minister Secretariat.

However, the technical appraisal wing of the Planning Commission in its comments mentioned that it was clearly written in the PC-1 that Wadh Fort was constructed by Public Works department in 1978 and handed over to Frontier Crops on November 15 1980, therefore, compensation of Fort and cost of allied facilities at the rate of Rs0.3 million per acre are not justifiable.
