What Nawaz Sharrif did to Balochistan

🔴 Nawaz Sharif chose the old fashioned way of rewarding opportunistic political leaders from Balochistan. This was at the cost of addressing the most pressing issues faced by the people there
🔴 *Balochistan government was supposed to get the control and ownership* of the copper-gold project in Saindak after Aghaze Haqooq Balochistan Package. PML-N government did not make any headway in this regard and this *issue is still unresolved*. 
🔴Balochistan government signed an unfavorable agreement to extend lease of Pakistan Petroleum Limited (PPL) in 2016, under pressure from federal government
🔴Balochistan is again the victim of the delay in formulation of new NFC award. The reason is that 7th NFC award uses obsolete and *manipulated figures of poverty which downplays poverty in Balochistan. As a result *Balochistan is losing up to Rs. 30 billion.*
🔴Not a single penny was spent by incumbent federal government to improve the capacity of national grid. As a result, all districts of Balochistan, except the capital Quetta, face load shedding of more than 12 hours per day.
🔴In peak season, the electricity demand in Balochistan is around 1,800 MW but the electric grid in Balochistan can only carry 650 MW of electricity. *This means that even if *there is surplus electricity available in country Balochistan can’t get more than 650 MW*.
