Gwadar to be made a separate division

*QUETTA - The Balochistan government wants to form a new division with Gwadar and Lasbela. *

Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan had asked for suggestions from the government over the possibility.

Gwadar is a part of Makran division, while Lasbela belongs to Kalat division.

It was being speculated the chief minister will announce the formation of the division during his next visit to Gwadar.

However, the plans have not gone down well with the opposition.

National Party President Senator Hazil Bizenjo said that Gwadar is a historical part of the Makran division. “Separating Gwadar from Makran division will be akin to rejecting its history,” he remarked.

He said that forming a division with Gwadar and Lasbela will be a hard task given the distance between the two districts.
