QUETTA: Balochidtan Chief Minister Mir Abdul Qudoos Bizenjo has asked the officials concerned to involve the local people and fishermen of Gwadar in development projects for the port city and consult them before planning a new project for it.
He was speaking at the 23rd meeting of the governing body of the Gwadar Development Authority (GDA) which he presided over as its chairman here on Monday.
