QUETTA: The Frontier Corps inspe­c­tor general on Friday held a grand jirga in Panjgur, adjacent to the Pakis­tan-Iran border, to listen to the problems the people of the area were facing in border trade. Senior military officials and a large number of political, tribal and social personalities attended the jirga whose purpose was to discuss the situation in the area and find a solution to the problems being faced by the people.

Speaking on the occasion, the FC inspector general said all responsibilities relating to the border had now been transferred to the civil administration and the army’s job was just to provide security to the people in the area. He said the business climate in Makran was much better now than what it used to be in the past.
