Baloch Yakjehti Committee 'exposes' reality of CPEC in Pakistan's Gwadar

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 04 Mar 2024, 05:32 pm

A prominent Baloch rights group has said the multi-billion-dollar China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) stood 'exposed' after the relief aid could not reach the flood-affected people in Gwadar despite tall claims made for the project.

" Today, BYC stands amidst the port city of #Gwadar, a central node in the multi-billion-dollar China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (#CPEC). While #Gwadar is portrayed as a beacon of development and prosperity, the stark reality is far grimmer. It has become a symbol of exploitation, despair, and suffering for its residents," posted Baloch Yakjehti Committee on X.

" For a decade now, purported developmental initiatives have unfolded here, yet the local populace continues to grapple with dire challenges. These apparent development endeavors have destroyed the lives of #Gwadar's inhabitants. The recent devastating floods starkly exemplify the outcome of the state's #BalochGenocidalPolicies, with these mega-projects serving as the principal catalysts exacerbating the flood," the statement said.

In a video that has been posted along with the X caption,  Baloch leader Maharan Baloch said that billions worth of infrastructure is the reason for people's sufferings.

Twenty-two districts of Balochistan have reported continuous rainfall for the past four days.

Due to water overflowing onto roads and landslides, ground communication has been disrupted in some districts, reported The Balochistan Post.

Traffic was disrupted in the region after Zhob-Dera Ismail Khan Highway and Quetta-Harnai Highway were closed to traffic due to water logging.
