A notification was issued here form Governor House which declared dissolution of the Balochistan Assembly.Earlier, Chief Minister for Balochistan Nawab Aslam Raisani sent a summary to Governor Balochistan Nawab Zulfiqar Magsi, advising him on the dissolution of the Assembly.Raisani was earlier quoted as saying that the provincial assembly will be dissolved on March 19.

In 40 sessions of the provincial assembly, only 48 bills were passed, while the representatives demonstrated a complete disregard for the people and blatantly pursued their self-interests above all else.During the last two years, the province received more than Rs360 billion as direct transfers and shares from a divisible pool of resources. Furthermore, the lucrative National Finance Commission Award granted Balochistan additional revenue, raising its share from 5.1% to 9.1% of the national pie.Development funds were wasted on insignificant plans that had no impact on the economy. All the MPAs, also ministers, strangely seemed fixated on developing gutters and nallahs. – OnlineNews
