QUETTA: Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan Alyani handed over offer letters of a journalist housing scheme to the Balochistan Union of Journalists (BUJ) and Quetta Press Club at the oath-taking ceremony of the newly-elected office-bearers on Wednesday.

Speaking on the occasion, the chief minister regretted that journalists housing scheme had faced delays for the last 30 years and the matter should have been resolved earlier, but the present government took up the matter seriously and approved it in just 18 months.

Mr Alyani handed over Offer Letters of the scheme to PFUJ President Shahzada Zulfiqar, BUJ President Ayub Tareen and Quetta Press Club president Raza-ur-Rehman.

The chief minister said that the provincial government would meet infrastructural needs of the scheme and may allocate funds for the scheme’s boundary wall, sewerage system and other development works in the next PSDP.
