The Minister said he wants the next award should be completed at the earliest. He said presently the Commission is incomplete because Sindh province has not yet nominated its member.

He said Rs 48 billion additional were given to KPK from divisible pool because the province was affected most due to war on terror. He said there is a realization that Balochistan should be given more funding for its development.
