Balochistan — worst drought-hit province
PAKISTAN is facing water shortage in all the provinces because during the last thirty years no new large water reservoir has been built. However Balochistan is the worst drought-hit province, as water sources in Balochistan have been contaminated due to low rainfalls in Balochistan particularly in Awaran district, resulting in water borne diseases and deaths. This natural calamity is being propagated by Baloch Sub Nationalists (BSNs) as a deliberate attempt on the part of Armed Forces to eject locals from villages in order to weaken the support to BSNs in their strongholds. Frontier Constabulary has taken timely measures by establishing medical camps in the affected areas to give relief to the people; however newly commissioned officers of Pak Army may be temporarily attached with these camps. The other day, FC Balochistan organized a day long free medical camp, and over 500 patients, suffering from various deceases in Kuchlak, were treated.
