QUETTA: The Balochistan government has constituted a committee to undertake work on the restoration of the historic Quaid-i-Azam Residency in Ziarat.

A spokesman for the provincial government has said the committee is headed by former chief secretary Mirza Qamar Baig.

Well-known architects, engineers and experts like Nayyar Ali Dada, Yasmin Lari and Kamil Khan Mumtaz are members of the committee. They have volunteered their services.

Mr Dada and Mr Mumtaz visited Ziarat recently and gave suggestions for the restoration of the residency and the provincial government has started steps in light of their recommendations.

The spokesman said the committee had invited prequalification bids from contractors from across the country.

He said the government would restore the residency to its original shape through its own resources.

He said that an impression created in a section of the press that renowned businessman Sadaruddin Hashwani would do the job was wrong.

However, the spokesman said the provincial government appreciated Mr Hashwani’s offer to restore the national monument.

Why is Yasmeen Lari part of this committee. Her modus operandi is "Volunteer" work at first but she has terrible credentials. Just google "Chitral Mosque restoration and Yaseem Lari role". This national monument needs more sincere people.
