QUETTA: President Dr Arif Alvi has said that resources under the NFC Award are distributed on the basis of population and the federal govern­ment is committed to providing additional funds to Balochistan to remove the sense of deprivation from the province.

He expressed these views while presiding over a me­­eting on rehabilitation of special persons at Governor House here on Monday.

He said it was important to make disabled persons useful citizens of society and for this purpose the scope of Vocational Training Centres had to be expanded.
