QUETTA- Provincial Health Minister, Rahmat Saleh Baloch claims that no secret funds were involved in Balochistan Budget 2014-15.

“The incumbent government did not include secret funds in the Budget and strictly adopted the principle of transparency,” he said.

He added that the critics should compare the budget presented by the incumbent government with the budgets presented by the previous regimes.

According to him, the new Budget also focused on provision of all missing facilities and free of cost medicines to poor patients at government-run hospitals.

“We not only increased allowances for nurses and other medical staff but also allocated remarkable funds for health sector to ensure provision of free of cost treatment to patients,” he said.
