Web Desk – October 06,  2020

QUETTA: Member of the National Assembly from Gwadar-Lasbela Mohammad Aslam Bhootani has expressed reservations over acquiring of land by the National Logistic Cell (NLC) for setting up a transport and trade terminal at the Gwadar-Iran border.

Talking to reporters on Monday after visiting Gwadar and Chabahar Port in Iran, he said the NLC project would deprive local transporters and traders of their livelihood as they would be displaced from the area.

Mr Bhootani said he would take up the issue in the upcoming session of the National Assembly.

The independent MNA, who supports the PTI government in the NA, said the NLC project would create a sense of deprivation among local people who are already not getting any benefit from the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor project.
