Prime Minister Imran Khan says an effective local government system would be introduced in Balochistan to resolve problems of people at grass-roots level.

Talking to students of various educational institutions of Balochistan at Prime Minister Office in Islamabad, he said Balochistan is a spread out area and it is very difficult to handle it from a centralised system.

Prime Minister said the government is going to start one of the biggest job provision programmes in the history of Pakistan by constructing five million houses in the entire country.

He said the federal government with cooperation of Pakistan Army would construct a cancer hospital in Balochistan.

Imran Khan said the federal government is also working on various water projects in the province and Mangi Dam would upgraded to meet water requirement of Quetta city and adjoining areas.

The Prime Minister said Balochistan is rich in mineral resources and only four minerals in the province are considered to be worth 460 billion dollars. He said the government will take up projects to utilise the resources.
