A sub tehsil without facilities: Imran Sattar
Balnigwar, which is a sub tehsil of Kech, 90-km away from Turbat city, is going through the severe lack of basic facilities, like unavailability of clean drinking water, electricity crisis, quality education, no hospital and poor road.
However, road is an inevitable source of transportation for the the people of Balnigwar who travel to Turbat city for treatment. But unfortunately, the road to Turbat is in a worst possible shape as it takes too much time to reach successfully. In fact, several emergency patients and pregnant women have lost their precious lives due to the poor road.
The road to Turbat gives you a headache, because this poor road makes a fine person unfine. Once my friend Sana visited with me to Balnigwar, along the way he got sick and had a headache, and in another disturbing case my own cousin was very much serious who passed away on the way, due to the destroyed road, he could not be taken to Turbat city successfully and on time.
This is the condition of the roads which is being used for the killing of people not for transportation. Furthermore, education is also a big issue in our area, because there are schools, but not teachers or schools facilities. According to the students, 80 teachers are required for the entire area, but there are only 20 teachers, but still these twenty teachers are not punctual with their duty. How our youth will go forward? In fact, in our area of Balnigwar, teachers are like naughty students that one day they are punctual and for a month they are absent. On the other hand, the schools facilities are not available, such as lack of classrooms, not availability of clean drinking water, and several more.
So the students of Balnigwar are sitting on the trees due to lack of classrooms. These are issues which are rising from Balnigwar schools.
As a result, the people of Balnigwar are traveling to Turbat or Quetta for quality education. However, hospital is one of the biggest problems in our area, because there is a lack of hospitals and doctors too. In the area, if you have a small sick, then you have to travel again to Turbat city for better treatment, because there is also lack of medicines. If someone gets sick, if a woman gets pregnant, then surely they have to also travel the wrose poor road which make the fine people unfine. I don’t think that the patients will reach successfully in Turbat.
Because of non-availabilty of hospitals, we are suffering from difficulties. If there were properly-run hospitals, then we need not to travel the destroyed road.
On the other hand, electricity is also a major problem in our area, because when in 2011 electricity was given to us, then electricity remained there for a year. After a year, the electricity has gone away, if one day there is electricity then for ten months the electricity is lost. The people are suffering due to this, the people are compelled to buy solars and generators for drinking water and for small farmering. If there will not be electricity, then the people will surely be thirsty for water.
That’s why electricity is also one of the major reasons for the people of Balnigwar. Then surely there is schools, but not teachers, there is hospitals, but not doctors, there is cars, but not road, there is electro towers, but not electricity.
At last, I request to the government of Balochistan to visit the all villages and towns to see wether their facilities are sufficient or not, and have a look at them what the condition or what they are suffering from. Most of the villages are suffering from the same condition so I plea to government to take a serious action on these matters which the village people have been facing.
They are suffering from difficulties and they are being ignored by the government of Pakistan. No one is looking at them and l am confused that who is responsible for them, they themselves or government?
