QUETTA: The first phase of Kachhi Canal has been completed and work on the second phase is under way.

Presiding over a meeting, Chief Secretary Fazeel Asghar said that Balochistan would see a new era of development after the completion of the Kachhi Canal project.

He said farm production would increase after completion of this project, which in turn would boost economy and improve quality of life in the province.

The meeting was informed that after completion of the first phase of Kachhi Canal, 102,000 acres of land would come under cultivation.

The chief secretary asked the officials concerned to complete all projects, including Kachhi Canal, on time and warned that there would be no compromise on the quality of work.

He stressed the need for planting more trees as part of development projects.
