QUETTA: The coalition government in Balochistan is implementing Public Sector Development Programme (PSDP), said Balochistan Information Minister Mir Zahoor Ahmed Buledi on Thursday at a press conference.

He strongly came out against the opposition parties rejecting their “propaganda” that there were differences between the allies of the coalition government and that the implementation of PSDP had been put on hold.

“The coalition government is fully implementing the PSDP. Through propaganda opposition parties are misguiding people,” he said.

The Balochistan coalition government is made up of six parties, including Balochistan Awami Party, Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf and the Awami National Party.

Giving details of the PSDP funds, he said the government had allocated Rs23 billion for 952 development schemes, Rs30.717bn for 1,515 development schemes, Rs77.159bn for 4,728 development schemes.
