QUETTA: Balochistan Chief Minister Nawab Aslam Raisani has declared Gwadar as the winter capital of Balochistan.

“Gwadar will be the winter provincial capital of Balochistan from Oct 21 to March 3,” the chief minister announced here on Wednesday.

He directed all government departments to make necessary arrangements for implementing the decision.

The proposal of making the coastal town the winter capital of the province was made by Speaker Aslam Bhootani two years ago.
