KHUZDAR: A total of 577 recruits of Levies Force from across Balochistan have completed their training.

Speaking as chief guest at the 13th passing-out parade of Balochistan Levies Force at Levies Training Centre on Tuesday, Home Minister Ziaullah Langove said the cabinet had decided in 2018 to train Levies personnel on modern lines in view of geostrategic and geopolitical importance of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.

He said the brave youths, who had joined Levies Force, along with other security forces had foiled the nefarious designs of the enemy with their blood.

“We are proud of security forces who are rendering sacrifices to save the country,” he said.

Chief Secretary Mathar Niaz Rana and Director General of Levies Force Mujeeb-ur-Rehman Qambrani also spoke on the occasion.

Prizes were distributed among the recruits.
